EA ANNOUNCES BLACK & WHITE 2: BATTLE OF THE GODS EXPANSION PACK

CHERTSEY, UK - March 16, 2006 - You've conquered Eden and its tribes, now return to find an even more powerful foe - a rival god who is determined to convert your subjects and become the ruler of Eden. Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: ERTS), the world's leading interactive entertainment software company, today announced that Lionhead Studios is developing Black & White® 2: Battle of The Gods, an expansion pack for Black & White® 2, which will become available to customers worldwide in April 2006.

The Battle of the Gods expansion pack for Black & White 2 offers player a host of new challenges in a much darker, more sinister game world. It takes the player back once more to the world of Eden where something strange has started to happen: The Aztecs have not accepted defeat lightly and by making a huge number of human sacrifices they have raised their own evil deity, forcing the player to return to Eden to fight it head on. As customary in the Black & White world, the player has the freedom to choose how they will rise to this new challenge by either countering the evil deity's actions with good deeds or attempting to defeat him with extreme evil.

Battle of the Gods will feature a brand new creature, two new lands and four new miracles. An all new enemy unit AI system enhances the battle experience but players will have to watch out for two new enemy armies and their ultimate weapon: the new enemy creature. There will also be six new challenges and other new content for players of the PC game to explore.

Battle of the Gods, the expansion pack for Black & White 2 is being developed by Lionhead Studios and distributed by EA. For more information on Battle of the Gods, Black & White 2 and Lionhead Studios please visit www.blackandwhite2.ea.com or our press website at www.electronicarts.co.uk/press
