Upcoming Mobile Games

In addition to our exciting lineup of new games, there are some opportunities for players to join in on beta testing two highly anticipated titles. Join the beta testing for these exceptional games and help shape their future with your feedback.

Need for Speed Mobile

As we eagerly await the release of Need for Speed Mobile, you can participate in limited play tests and beta versions of the game. Explore a vast 100 km squared open-world map and relive legendary Need for Speed game modes, including intense player competitions and exhilarating cop chases. Customize your car to perfection with a wide range of options. Note that the progress from the limited test will be reset, but don't worry – if you leave your user ID and contact information, EA may send you "special gifts" for upcoming tests. The current limited test is available to players in Australia, but more tests are likely to come before the global release.

The Division Resurgence

Explore a new PvE campaign, taking on the role of a first-wave SHD agent and discovering the events around The Division 1 & 2. Test your skills in the Conflict modes Skirmish & Domination for competitive thrills, or venture into the infamous Dark Zone – a unique PvPvE open-world area.
