You've been able to race just about everything in Real Racing 3 since it first hit mobile three years ago. Yet Firemonkeys and EA keep managing to get more vehicles in the game, finding new ways to keep drivers coming back for more.
The game's latest update is called Evolution of Jaguar, and as the name suggests, it explores the rich history of one of the automotive industry's most iconic luxury car manufacturers. It brings with it not just a chance to win Jaguar vehicles to drive in the game -- though you certainly can do that, with a chance to win three different models -- but three other new cars from the likes of Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and Dodge as well.
A three-part Jaguar Legacy Quest is interspersed with three other limited time events that start now and run through September 18. Let's break them down:
Confidently enjoying its time riding high in the iTunes chart, The Sims Freeplay has been quite a hit since its initial release. That’s because completing day-to-day chores is pretty satisfying here, if not in real life.
We could write hundreds of thousands of words on the game but for now, we’re going to focus on putting you through the paces with some of the life stages in The Sims Freeplay.
It looks like SimCity BuildIt is finally getting a break from all those disasters. The mini-sim has recently been updated with a new Beach Boardwalk for you to develop and expand.
E3 is in full swing, and Electronic Arts had a pretty big presentation for it. They even included a couple of mobile announcements.

Whether you’ve been playing Real Racing 3 for a while or are just getting started, chances are all you Apple Watch users are wondering what’s up with its watch functionality.

Another week, another Real Racing 3 update; this time with a new Race Teams mode, more tracks, more cars, and... Apple Watch support?
Electronic Arts is bringing all the hard-hitting action of the Ultimate Fighting Championship with EA SPORTS UFC. You can choose from a roster of over 70 fighters in four divisions such as Jon Jones or Georges St-Pierre, and each fighter has their own special moves that you’ll be able to unlock as you play.
EA is taking SimCity BuildIt to Japan in this latest update, Tokyo Town. The game will now allow you to unlock the international airport, which allows you to ship cargo and earn Tokyo Town items, like a Lucky Cat. You can also build the Himeji Castle landmark, post-modern skyscrapers, and Japanese style residential zones. There is a new Mailbox to receive rewards, gifts, and game update news. Lastly, your city's sky will be filled with blimps and hot air balloons.

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.
The game's new update adds what Electronic Arts describes as the "most requested" feature in its history: Sunset Mall.

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.
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.
