It looks like EA Games could be giving us BlackBerry 10 gamers some special loving. The only downside is that the offer is very much country specific and looks to only be happening in parts of Asia Pacific. They actually had the price drop on February 1st but we were holding off to see if the roll out went world wide - no such luck I'm afraid.

If you're in that neck of the woods hit up BlackBerry World you should see that the awesome selection from EA Games are now showing as free - boom!

Christmas seems a long way back when we last had a daily free app/game from BlackBerry, so it's great to see them getting back into the swing of things with some discounts.

Depending on what BlackBerry 10 device you own will depict how many titles you'll see in BlackBerry World as some are all-touch only. Either way it's all good news - as long as you are in a qualifying country. 

The full list of (now) free games are as follows: 

  • Battleship for Blackberry 10
  • Bejeweled 2 for Blackberry 10
  • Boggle for Blackberry 10
  • Dead Space for BlackBerry 10
  • Flight Control Rocket for BlackBerry 10
  • Monopoly Millionaire for BlackBerry 10
  • Mass Effect: Infiltrator for BlackBerry 10
  • NBA Jam for BlackBerry 10
  • Need for Speed Undercover for BlackBerry 10
  • Plants vs Zombies for BlackBerry 10
  • Sim City Deluxe for BlackBerry 10
  • The Game of Life for BlackBerry 10
  • Monopoly for Blackberry 10
  • Yahtzee for BlackBerry 10
  • Tetris for BlackBerry 10

Nice job BlackBerry and EA - this is what we like to see once in a while. Just a shame it's not a global offer.

It is really cool to see EA offer this, hats off to them. With the app gap closing due to the 10.2.1 rollout I wonder what will happen to developers for Blackberry 10 native apps. What other incentives could Blackberry implement to motivate them to create apps for BlackBerry 10? Only time will tell. Also wondering how are other people utilizing their PlayBook devices in 2014. Also if Kevin and the rest of the crackberry team are reading this, when might we expect a full video review for all the blackberry 10 devices now with the new OS update??? I've been patiently waiting for months.

Good point, we need new reviews with new OS

I'm curious to find out what native BlackBerry devs will do next

The 'app gap' hasn't closed, only to crackberry readers who follow how to download apk files, to the average smartphone buyer and user they wouldn't know and wouldn't bother, it's not like instant out of the box access to apps, it's fiddly, inconvenient and the average user will avoid

They most certainly are.

Go to games tab, click on real racing which should be a top free game, then open right menu and click on more from developer.

I got the whole list downloaded and added to my BBID on my Z10, but a lot of games were not shown on my Q10.

You can "purchase" them all, and interrupt the download immediately, so you get them onto your BBID, and download them later at any time on wifi.

Get it while it lasts!

I wonder if a VPN service would help ineligible BlackBerry 10 users (in Canada) become eligible for this offer?

Felipe O

please delete your post. what you suggest is immoral and a breach of contract.

Prem WatsApp

If he bought an airline ticket and went there physically, what's the difference?

This is a GLOBAL thing now, and DVD region codes, geographical distribution models etc. is so 2005. I don't quite agree with those practices anymore. Manufacturers should reconsider.

I don't suggest doing anything immoral, but these practices should not be continued.

I'm not sure what's more impressive than what I'm seeing right now, but it's quite incredible seeing what I'm seeing as I read. Canada, United States, Germany, Nigeria, South Africa, Romania, Bahrain, Philippines, United Kingdom, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, China, Hungary, Hong Kong, Sweden, Vietnam, Australia, Austria, Indonesia, India, Morocco, France, Portugal, Dubai, Netherlands, Spain, Thailand, Egypt, New Zealand and Singapore. I've got people from those cities right here in Toronto but none of them I know, but the people here on Crackberry, one huge family! Take a look folks, take a good look. How impressive is BlackBerry? Not everyone may be fortunate, but to those cities that finally got what we've gotten in different ways; all I can say is wow. BlackBerry is alive in places I never knew they could exist in, can't believe what I'm seeing :)
