Electronic Arts’s next social title is going to be Jetset Secrets, a hidden object game with an adventure-focused theme.
Jetset Secrets looks like it’ll be feature standard hidden object gameplay, but a huge part of the marketing is based around the game’s style, which is based on 1960s spy thrillers. Players take on the role of a detective who travels the globe, accompanied by their “world-class crew.” Along the way, they’ll uncover the plots of various villains and save the world. On top of that, hidden objects will provide players with wealth, which it looks like they’ll be able to use to establish a base of operations, based on early screenshots. The game’s trailer also promises players will be able to play with their friends, but doesn’t go into detail about how this mechanic will work.
Hidden object games are still popular on Facebook, but they aren’t seeing the high traffic they used to. Our traffic-tracking service AppData reveals Zynga’s Hidden Chronicles is the leader of the genre with 1.9 million daily active users, a far cry from its February peak of 7.4 million DAU. Disney Playdom’s Gardens of Time and Disney Animal Kingdom Explorers are currently tied with 720,000 DAU. Based on EA’s user base of 4.1 million DAU, promotion under the company’s banner might very well place Jetset Secrets at the top of the genre.
Exactly when EA plans to release the game hasn’t been revealed, but the official app page promises the game will launch soon. For more information about Jetset Secrets, check out the game’s official Facebook page.
