As promised, today we are proud to share an update on new features available in NFL Showdown, our first game under the Zynga Sports 365 brand. When we secured our partnership with the NFL and NFL Players Inc., we were excited to release NFL Showdown in time for the NFL season. From the onset, it was important to us to deliver you, our players, a unique, football game in time for the NFL season so you had more ways to engage with your favorite NFL teams and athletes, while also providing us with invaluable feedback about the experience you want. Since launch, we have been listening closely to all of your feedback and have developed a robust lineup of new features most requested by our core fans and community.
Today, we’re taking another step toward delivering fans the ultimate mobile football game by adding a number of new features designed to give players more ways to control, connect and compete in NFL Showdown. These new features are just the beginning of a series of additions we plan to make to NFL Showdown in the coming months – all designed to deliver the most authentic NFL management game available. Here’s what you can now
look forward to in NFL Showdown:
- Real-Time, In-Game Management: The #1 feature most requested by players is the ability to take more control as the head coach of their favorite NFL team. The In-game management feature now allows players to make real-time coaching decisions as games unfold. Choose wisely, because decisions on game strategy, substitutions and play style will all have an impact on the outcome of each game.
- Scout the Competition: Now NFL Showdown is making it easier for players to size up the competition, by allowing them to watch League competitors play through the Scouting feature. Watch other teams’ games to boost your team rating and gain an advantage in upcoming head-to-head matchups. The more games you scout, the bigger the boost. And don’t worry if you didn’t make it to the playoffs or Super Bowl, you can scout those games regardless if you’re in them.
- Replay Past Games: Missed your last Showdown? No problem. Players will now be able to bask in the thrill of victory or learn from their defeat by replaying the most recent game you missed.
In addition to the features, today we are excited to announce that NFL Showdown is available for a range of Windows 8.1 powered devices including phones, tablets, laptops, and desktops. By partnering with Microsoft, the official tablet of the National Football League, we are bringing the most authentic NFL management game to more players on more platforms.
We’re continuing to update the game based on your feedback, so please keep it coming. Reach out to us on the NFL Showdown forum to give us your input on the game. Thank you to all our players for your continued support and feedback, and stay tuned for more features coming soon.

Target Locked! Today Zynga is excited and proud to announce its entry into the mobile Action Strategy category with an early beta of a new mobile game: “Empires & Allies”.
Action Strategy is one of the most popular categories on mobile. The beta of new “Empires & Allies” marks the first step for Zynga and its commitment to this category throughout 2015. The experienced team, led by veteran RTS developers, is excited at the huge opportunity to innovate and redefine what players expect from a mobile strategy game.
The new “Empires & Allies” completely reimagines the brand for today’s mobile audience based on player feedback and insights the team has learned over the years. Players want to immerse themselves in a realistic modern military strategy game on mobile – one that puts them in control of their army with more choice and strategy on how best to use the weapons of modern war – and this is the foundation of the new “Empires & Allies”.
“Empires & Allies” is now in its initial geo-lock beta release and is set to launch worldwide in early 2015. During the first few weeks and months of geo-lock beta, the team will listen to and improve the game based on live player feedback while also actively adding new features and gameplay.
