Here's The Code To Receive 'The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection' Free From EA, No Strings Attached

Good news, gamers! Electronic Arts has decided to donate The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection to anyone and everyone in need of a game to play. That's right -- the title is completely free, provided you claim your copy by July 31, 2014 at 10AM PDT. After that, the freebie promotion disappears, though it probably won't be the last time EA does something like this.

So, that's the good news. And the bad? As you probably guessed, you have to claim and download the game through your Origin account. For some, that requirement is no big deal, but if you're turned off by EA's Origin service, this could be a deal killer. We suppose some of you might find that to be a string, but it's understandable that EA would want to deliver its game through its own digital distribution service.

If you're still interested, log into your Origin account (or create one) and click on the Games tab in the Origin menu. Once in there, select Redeem Product Code and type I-LOVE-THE-SIMS (including the dashes) in the Product Code field. Just like that, you're all set.

The timing of EA's freebie promotion comes a week after the publisher announced it was dropping support for the title, meaning no more new content, patches, or updates of any kind. It was a good run for the game, however, which was released nearly a decade ago.

Not worth. Not a fan of the series and Origin is miserable.

Awesome. My wife loves Sims 3, but shes kinda got bored of it and it doesn't really work so well on my PC. Hopefully Sims 2 will revitalize her passion for Sims by playing it on max settings with all 18 expansions. Thx EA, I can't wait for Sims 4 (once I upgrade my PC of course)

I remember playing the first one years go, not played a game since. I don't even bother with our new casino in town, just not my thing.
