EA posts new trailer for upcoming game ‘Need for Speed: No Limits’

EA mobile today posted what it is calling the “Official Gameplay Teaser” for its upcoming Need for Speed: No Limits title. Like the previous teaser, it runs about 30 seconds long, but this time there’s a lot more in-game footage, and a lot less Ken Block.

Unsurprisingly, the new Need for Speed is being built by Firemonkeys, the combined teams of Firemint and IronMonkey Studios, who both have extensive backgrounds in racing. The game will have a heavy focus on street racing and vehicle customization.

Hackers caught using EA Games servers to phish for Apple IDs

According to a new report from security research firm Netcraft, Electronic Arts’ servers have been compromised. Two websites from the video game publisher’s domain have been hacked and are now hosting phishing pages setup to steal Apple ID and credit card information.

It works like this: when a potential victim arrives at one of the pages, they are asked to enter their Apple ID and password. Once completed, they’re taken to a second page which asks for personal details and credit card info, and then redirected to the official Apple ID website…

Those of you who weren’t impressed by Plants vs. Zombies 2 or its ‘freemium’ business model will be happy to hear that EA has updated the original PvZ game with support for the latest devices and firmware.

EA denies reports that Apple paid to delay Android version of Plants vs. Zombies 2

Electronic Arts-owned studio PopCap released the highly anticipated sequel to its popular Plants vs. Zombies game on the 16th of August, and it only took them two weeks to rack up a staggering 25 million downloads.

As you can imagine, this played out very well for Apple, as the game has been and still is an iOS-exclusive. And according to a report, the Cupertino company paid EA a ‘truckload’ of money to make that happen…

EA announces it’s bringing freemium model to mobile FIFA titles

Sorry FIFA fans, it looks like the popular soccer (futbol) game is going freemium this year. Electronic Arts made the not-so-surprising announcement during its Gamescom press conference in Germany this morning.

This means that when FIFA 14, or whatever it’s going to be called, hits mobile devices later this year, it’ll utilize EA’s free-to-play business model. So while it’ll be free to download, it’ll likely be rife with in-app purchases…

Plants vs. Zombies 2 now available for download

At this point, it seems like we’ve been waiting on ‘Plants vs. Zombies 2’ for forever now. First previewed back in March of this year, the sequel to PopCap’s popular tower defense game was supposed to launch in July, but was delayed until ‘late summer.’

Then a few weeks ago, the title was soft-launched in two countries: Australia and New Zealand, with no explanation when we would see the title stateside. But never fear, the wait is over. ‘Plants vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time’ just hit App Stores worldwide…

Plants vs. Zombies 2 to be delayed until ‘later in the summer’

Bad news this afternoon for Plants vs. Zombies fans. Electronic Arts has announced today that the highly anticipated sequel to PopCap’s popular lane defense game will not launch next month as it had originally anticipated.

A few weeks ago, PopCap announced that the game, officially titled ‘Plants vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time,’ would be released on July 18. But it appears EA—its parent company—thinks it needs more time to fine tune things…
