Two free EA games landed in Ubuntu Software Center
Just days after the initial EA rumors, it is now a reality the landing and availability of two Electronic Arts games in Ubuntu Software Center: Command & Conquer Tiberium Alliances and Lord of Ultima.
Lord of Ultima is a popular strategy game that simulates an immersive medieval civilization that features in-depth strategic gameplay, extensive city building modes and numerous social features.
Command & Conquer Tiberium Alliances tests your Commander abilities as you succeed or fail in fighting and gaining resources and world domination.
The web-browser based games are available for free (in order to install the games, press the Buy button), furthermore, it seems that EA "have identified Ubuntu as an exciting channel to deliver their content" and, although the above games are web-browser based (they are playable via the default web-browser), the future looks promising according to Ubuntu's Jono Bacon: "Let’s not get side-tracked by the fact that these are web games and not native to Ubuntu: EA are dipping their toes in Ubuntu as a channel of opportunity, and let’s welcome them with open arms".
