EA has launched its Sports Complex on SCEA's 3D social gaming community Home, allowing fans to play exclusive new EA Sports multiplayer games, meet and interact with fans, view daily, weekly and annual leaderboards, as well as watch trailers and other content from their favorite EA Sports games.

This newly created EA Sports space offers users a place to play a variety of unique, casual multiplayer games with friends in PlayStation Home, as well as view exclusive game trailers and videos, to learn more about their favorite EA Sports games. At launch, EA Sports Complex will feature a tournament-style Texas Hold 'Em Poker game and EA Sports Racing featuring formula-style cars.

"We are extremely proud of the compelling and immersive online offerings that are available at launch for EA Sports Complex," said Rob Burnett, senior producer. "EA Sports Complex is a dynamic space and was specifically designed to appeal to not only the hardcore sports fan but casual gamers alike."

Gamers can challenge up to eight of their friends in a tournament-style Texas Hold 'Em Poker game and play their way up to a seat at the high roller table. In addition to high-stakes poker, players can get behind the wheel in EA Sports Racing and compete for the best time or against their friends in exclusive formula-style cars. Coming soon is EA Sports Golf where gamers can hit the driving range and test their stick skills. In addition to the golf game, EA Sports Complex will be delivering further features such as leaderboards, poker bracelets and a rewards system in the near future. Moreover, starting today EA Sports Complex will be available in North America and Europe. Future rollout of the space to other territories and in other languages will be coming soon.

Alongside these fun and casual games, EA Sports Complex will also host game trailers showcasing the newest EA Sports titles and in-depth product feature lists. EA Sports Complex is truly an interactive space as players can chat and share experiences with one another and earn game-specific achievement rewards. As this dynamic arena grows there will be additional games and franchise-specific environments developed to provide a fresh and new experience.
