EA Offering SimCity Players One Of Eight Free Games

EA said it was offering free games to players as an apology for SimCity's botched launch, and now they've revealed the selection – which includes SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition.

If you've activated SimCity, you should be getting an email from EA that offers instructions on how to claim your additional game. If you picked up the game but haven't yet registered it, you'll need to do so before end of day March 25.

Here's a list of the games you can pick from. 

  • 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 

SimCity's launch was plagued with server issues, which prevented users from logging on to the game – a large problem considering the game's always-online requirement. Some enterprising users have found workarounds in the meantime, but that didn't help players hoping to enjoy the game on launch day.
