The holidays are upon us and along with bright lights, joyful music and delicious food comes unexpected houseguests, the pressures of seasonal travel, and the long lines as you snag your last-minute gifts.  

In an effort to help you with a way to combat these holiday stressors, we’ve compiled a list of free, holiday-themed EA Mobile games that will help you stay merry all the way into 2014.

Here are our top picks for hot mobile gaming apps to keep you warm this holiday—and all of them are free to download!


The Sims FreePlay

The holidays are the perfect occasion to spend quality time with your family…your Sims family, that is! With sleigh bells ringing and New Year’s Eve Fireworks lighting up the sky, make sure to bring The Sims FreePlay everywhere you go this winter. Whether you’re stuck on an airplane for hours or trying to tune out your loudest relative at a family dinner, The Sims FreePlay makes for great holiday fun.

The Sims FreePlay allows you to create up to 31 customized Sims!   With new in-game holiday content, celebrate the holidays with your Sims family as they go through holiday challenges to earn presents along the way.  With the addition of festive quests, Christmas gifts, and a red-nosed reindeer, now’s the time to grab your eggnog and check out The Sims FreePlay.

The Simpsons: Tapped Out

iPad, iPod Touch, iPhone, Android, and Kindle

The holidays are in full swing in The Simpsons: Tapped Out and a clerical error causes it to snow down gift cards upon the citizens of Springfield, spreading more than the usual amount of cheer. How will Springfielders react to their new place among the economic elite? With new characters bringing and selling holiday cheer, appropriately themed buildings, and a quest line that explores the true meaning of the holidays, this update is filled with enough festive fun to get you through the holidays.

Real Racing 3

Trade in your sleigh and reindeer this winter and get behind the wheel of a Lamborghini Veneno or a McLaren P1! Real Racing 3 is one of the most successful racing apps in history and this holiday season is a perfect chance to find out why.

Put the pedal to the metal and fly by competition on the hottest virtual tracks! With an all-new holiday-themed Supercars update, racers on the Apple platform can now compete in Real-Time Online Multiplayer against up to 4 other racers, and participate in new high-speed events featuring some of the world’s most glamorous cars from Lamborghini and McLaren.  You can also spread the holiday spirit on the track with a limited edition FREE seasonal livery for their Ford Focus RS.

Plants vs. Zombies 2

The war continues between plants and zombies this holiday season! Join Crazy Dave on a quirky trip through time where you’ll meet, greet and defeat legions of zombies from the dawn of time to the end of days.

Included in the Plants vs. Zombies 2 holiday update, Feastivus is a 5-day party from December 24-30 with holiday-themed zombies in a wintery backyard. After each Feastivus level is complete, the player gets to open a special holiday gift.

The new Plants vs. Zombies2 holiday update also includes a Turbo Feature for players who want to speed up their game, an updated linear map feature that will let you proceed through the game’s primary levels more quickly, and a special appearance by PvZ fan favorite, Gargantuar.
