EA pulls paid Peggle from App Store in some regions, swaps in free-to-play version

Electronic Arts is currently testing the free-to-play waters with an updated version of Peggle on the App Store in Singapore and New Zealand, Kotaku reports.

A mobile version of Peggle was previously available for free in the App Store in both territories. According to Kotaku, however, that version has since been replaced with a free-to-play version in which players can purchase more balls or lives to progress. The old version is no longer available. According to EA, this edition isn't final.

"We're exploring different ways to extend the fun of Peggle on mobile, and we're currently testing a free-to-play version of the game in Singapore and New Zealand," an EA spokesperson told Kotaku. "It's important to note that we haven't finalized gameplay features or business model yet, and this free-to-play version of Peggle is part of a series of tests we'll be conducting in specific markets. We often test these experiences first to see if they resonate with our players."

Peggle is still available in other territories for $0.99 with an in-app purchase for add-on Peggle Nights.

The most recent entry in the franchise, Peggle 2, launched for Xbox One last year. For more on the game, check out our review.
