Last week, EA announced that it would be ending support for The Sims 2, and as compensation it would be offering all owners a free upgrade to the Ultimate Edition, but due to a recent policy change everyone can download it for free until July 31.
Even if you don’t have an Origin account you can still claim your free copy by creating one today. To claim your free copy, open up Origin, head to the “Games” tab, select “Redeem Product Code,” and then enter the following without the quotation marks or period: “I-LOVE-THE-SIMS.” There you have it, it’s as simple as that.
The Sims 2 Ultimate Edition includes eight expansion packs (University, Nightlife, Open for Business, Pets, Seasons, Bon Voyage, Free Time, and Apartment Life) plus all of the “Stuff” packs released for the game that add new items, furniture, and clothing.
This offer will only be available until July 31 at 10 a.m. PDT.
