Whether you’ve been enjoying SimCity without any problems for the last few weeks or you’ve been cursing EA and Maxis while Origin throws server errors at you, EA want to give you a free game.
In order to apologize for the disastrous launch and no doubt to try and stem the tsunami of negative press, anyone who registers their copy of SimCity by March 26th will have a choice of a free EA game on Origin.
Be warned though, you have to register your SimCity copy before 06:59 on March 26th and then download your free game by 07:59 on March 31st, quite a small and awkward window to get your game but hey, free is free and a lot of the games on offer are new and/or highly praised.
