Yep you read that right. You can get the WHOLE The Sims 2 collection, for free!
We mentioned last week that EA was being really generous by handing out the free copy to existing The Sims 2 Digital purchasers. As the release date to The Sims 4 draws closer, EA has decide, heck why not give EVERYONE a free copy. So how does one go about getting said exciting freebie? All you need is to login to your Origin account, or if you have yet to have one, sign-up with them. After that, it’s just a simple matter of entering this particular code, I-LOVE-THE-SIMS, and voila you’ve got yourself a chunk load of The Sims 2 goodness. Do it fast tough as you have until the end of July (which is exactly a week away) before the code expires.
As we mentioned before, EA is pulling support for the game in anticipation of the launch of The Sims 4. It’s been almost 10 years since The Sims 2 was launched as a follow up to the groundbreaking The Sims. It’s had a good run since then, releasing eight expansion packs and nine stuff packs throughout the years that followed its initial release. With the latest iteration of the game coming out, it’s no surprise that EA has decided to end support so they can focus on The Sims 4 and continue support for The Sims 3.
As for the generosity of offering not only one game, but a whole collection? Maybe EA was just being really generous. It’s not the first time they’ve offered free games, but considering the stiff competition they have on the digital delivery front with Steam, having an offer like this does no harm in increasing the uptake of Origin users.
So relive your memories of The Sims 2, this time we every single expansion and stuff pack you couldn’t be bothered to throw money at. It’ll definitely kill some time before you can go gaga over The Sims 4.
