The Sims Freeplay is awesome, but as any fan will tell you there's no such thing as having too many outfits - in real life or otherwise. Thankfully, Electronic Arts feels the same.

Per the App Store page, Version 5.11.0 brings:

• Grab your besties and come on down to the Sunset Mall, there are over 16 new shops bursting with new outfits
• Dresses, shoes, coats, and more! Your Sims never looked so good, with over 500 new clothes for all age groups
• Show off the latest trends on the Catwalk with the new Modelling Hobby. Strike a pose to unlock new shops
• Strike! Meet up with friends and try your hand in the Bowling Hobby. Knock down those pins to unlock the Juice Bar!

• Experience Lunar New Year with your family! Hang up lanterns, and cheer on the lion dancers in the Lunar New Year Quest – coming Feb 14

SimCity BuildIt, by Electronic Arts, is a mobile freemium version of the ever-popular SimCity. And EA recently released an infographic that shows just how popular it's getting.

While it's not a true port of the PC classic, but instead a SimCity-themed social game with micro-transactions and wait times, SimCity BuildIt has proven it has its own city erecting allure. The app has had over 15,500,000 downloads and those new Mayors have earned over 19,952,234,204,841 simoleans. Those are some busy builders!

You can try SimCity BuildIt for yourself by downloading it for free on the App Store, and you can find more stats after the break.

Play With a Purpose - EA Joins the Pack With the World Wildlife Foundation to Help Save Animals

Posted by Jessica Fisher on January 16th, 2015

EA and the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) are partnering up from now until January 31 to raise money for animals and ecosystems in an effort called Play With a Purpose. The pair will be offering special items and bundle packs that showcases an endangered animal or ecosystem. 35% of the net proceeds will go to support WWF global conservation efforts.

The list of games include:

  • Rhino & Madden NFL Mobile: Although there is no scientific proof of its medical value, rhino horn is highly prized in traditional Asian medicine. Illegal killing of Rhinos for horns has severely threatened their population. Supporting with the WWF Rhino Pack of 5 players.

  • Poison Dart Frog & Theme Park: The Amazonian poison dart frog uses its brightly colored skin to warn predators that it is unfit to eat. Climate change and habitat loss threaten their survival. Supporting with the WWF Poison Dart Frog Bundle.

  • Snow Leopard & Tetris Blitz: Inhabiting Central Asia and the Himalayas, snow leopards are threatened by habitat loss, diminished food supply, hunting for illegal wildlife trade, and revenge killings by herders. Supporting with the WWF Bundle.

  • Sumatran Tiger & Bejeweled Blitz: Fewer than 400 Sumatran tigers exist on the island of Sumatra. Accelerating deforestation and rampant poaching mean this noble creature could end up extinct. Supporting with the 270,000 Coins pack.

  • Emperor Penguin & MONOPOLY Slots: Known as the “giant of the penguins”, an adult can grow up to four feet in height and weigh 80 pounds. Climate change and habitat loss pose the greatest risks to these remarkable birds. Supporting with the WWF Pack.

  • Forests & Plants vs. Zombies 2: Over the past 50 years, about half the world’s original forest cover has been lost. The most significant cause for this is human deforestation. Supporting with the Sap-fling Reforestation Bundle.

  • Arctic Hare & Peggle Blast: The arctic hare lives in the tundra of the Arctic islands and faces threats from habitat loss and climate change. Supporting with the Master-activating Green Power Peg.

  • You can visit www.ea.com/wwf for more details, and to learn more about the WWF visit www.panda.org.

    SimCity Buildit - Tips, Tricks, and Strategies for a City that Works

    Posted by Nadia Oxford on December 23rd, 2014

    Hello, Budding Mayors
    Want to know what we made of all this upgrading and inevitable waiting? Check out our SimCity BuildIt review!

    SimCity BuildIt is a city-building game from EA. Your job as mayor is to build houses for people to live in, industry and utilities to serve them, and to try and make sure the good people of your city don't get mixed up in their own sewage.

    SimCity BuildIt is straightforward for the most part, but that doesn't mean running a city is always smooth sailing. Here are a few tips to keep your city happy and well-oiled.

    Basic Building

    • More citizens means more taxes - When all is said and done, your goal in SimCity BuildIt is to attract new citizens and keep them happy so they don't move out. More citizens means more tax money for beautification projects.

    • You're not charged for paving streets or moving buildings, so go nuts - Moving stuff around in SimCity BuildIt doesn't cost you anything, nor does laying down roads. You can organize and re-organize your city without fear of going broke, so go for it.

    • Visit neighbors' trading posts for cheap goods - Make friends with other players, then visit their cities once a day to access their trading posts. It's a great way to get materials quickly and cheaply. Every player is assigned to a fully-developed neighboring city, so don't worry if you lack friends.
