And that’s all folks. Electronic Arts has just announced that it will no longer provide content updates to the popular 2004 life simulation title, The Sims 2. However, if you possess a digital copy of the game you will be upgraded to an Ultimate Collection edition of the same title for absolutely no charge, the company noted on a FAQ page on its official website.
So what if you encounter some bugs? Fret not, the company says that it will still offer technical updates -- well kind of. "Going forward, EA will no longer be providing any new content or making any additional technical updates to The Sims 2," reads the statement from the publisher. "If you have a problem with your game, you are of course still welcome to contact us here at EA Help.
For those of you who own a digital copy of the The Sims 2, you can find the Ultimate Collection in your library, complete with all eight expansions that have been released. You will need to log in to Origin and visit your My Games library. You might not want to procrastinate on that one as the offer expires in just five days.
As Polygon notes, these expansions included University, Nightlife, Open for Business, Pets, Seasons, Bon Voyage, Free Time and Apartment Life. Needless to mention that the Ultimate Collection will pack in the game as well. You will also get to have all the “stuff” which essentially consists of furniture, clothing and similar items.
So, who is excited about the new title in the franchise, The Sims 4 which releases on September 2 on PC?
