Rango Screens

We have been sent a number of screenshots of Rango from Electronic Arts. The game is to be based on the upcoming animated Johnny Depp film, "Rango". It follows the adventures of Rango through the Old West town of Dirt, where you will meet characters from the film and take part in various shootouts.

EA Shutting down many online based titles

Electronic Arts plans to shut down the online aspects of a number of titles over the next few months. This has become the norm for EA each year, especially now that many of these games are no longer being played online. Some say it pushes users to buy EA's newer titles.
