EA have tactically created a scheme to get people back on their side and nothing gets people on your side like free stuff.
Anyone that’s purchased SimCity (or purchases it by March 26th) will have access to a free PC game download via EA Origin. It’s a smart PR move to help heal the company’s damaged image (well, more damaged image) that SimCity‘s problems gave the company. People that have had to deal with the server issues are rewarded with a free game and people that don’t yet own it are enticed to buy it due to a free game. Clever, EA. Very clever; don’t let it think it means that SimCity‘s problems are not still problems, but this is admittedly quite a deal.
The full free game list — including one-month-old Dead Space 3 — is below and will be available to SimCity players to download from March 22nd – 30th.
- Battlefield 3 (Standard Edition)
- Bejeweled 3
- Dead Space 3 (Standard Edition)
- Mass Effect 3 (Standard Edition)
- Medal of Honor Warfighter (Standard Edition)
- Need For Speed Most Wanted (Standard Edition)
- Plants vs. Zombies
- SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition
