After 10 Years, EA Is Pulling The Plug On The Sims 2

Today, the company said that it "will no longer be providing any new content or making any additional technical updates" for the game. The good news is that if you're still playing the 2004 instalment to pass the time until The Sims 4 drops in September, EA said it's going to give everybody with a registered copy a free Ultimate Collection.

    Pulled out my original retail disc last night, got hold of an advisor and they activated the ultimate edition right there, took about an hour to get them but otherwise all nice and easy. Very surprising for EA.

    I got sims 2 free with my pizza about 8 years back... box is still sealed to this day

    Only digital copies, not disc-based.
