The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection is now free for everybody
So remember when EA announced the end of its technical support for The Sims 2 and gave everyone who owned that game a free upgrade to The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection? Well, I don't know what's happening over at the company many once considered to be the worst in America, but they've decided to just give it away to anyone. No longer do you need to have owned The Sims 2.
"Because you’re a passionate The Sims 2 player, we’re making The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection available free of charge to download to your Origin library," EA said. "Thanks for being a passionate The Sims fan, and enjoy your copy of The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection."
To add the game to your library, you must first have the Origin client and an account (don't worry, it's free to create one). From the "Games" tab in the Origin menu, select "Redeem Product Code" and enter the code: I-LOVE-THE-SIMS.
The code will remain active until July 31, 2014 at 10:00am Pacific.
