The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection Free on Origin

EA has made The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection completely free to everybody. This collection compiles The Sims 2, all of its expansion packs, and all the Stuff packs into one package. There are only two stipulations to this. One, you have to have an Origins account. Origins, to put it simply, is EA’s take on Steam except it only carries EA’s more recent games. Signing up for Origins is free. Two, this deal ends on July 31.

The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection was originally released on July 16 as a kind of good news/bad news pairing alongside news of EA discontinuing support for the game. It was supposed to be for people who own and registered the digital version of The Sims 2, but that leaves out players who bought retail copies of the game. This move may be their way of rectifying this oversight.

The Sims 2 has had eight expansion packs in its near-decade long life. These expansions add new items and some major mechanics to the game such as dating, owning pets, weather systems, and hobbies among others. The Stuff packs don’t add major gameplay mechanics. Instead they add new, theme oriented items to the game.

About Karli Winata

Karli Winata is an avid gamer with a taste for a little bit of everything. Except for sports games. And racing sims. And definitely not hidden object games! I guess everything is too broad a term. Suffice it to say that he has been known to play hours of Call of Duty multiplayer in between bouts of Persona fusing and Star Coin collecting while saving the world/galaxy through sensibly bald space marines or plucky teenagers with impossible hairstyles. Where does he find the time to write about them?
