EA Offer AAA Games Over SimCity Mishap

SimCity could be one of the worst game launches of recent times (since we’ve all forgiven Diablo III), with technical issues plaguing the servers and an always-on DRM that prevented users from playing the game. “Our SimCity Mayors are incredibly important to the team at Maxis. We sincerely apologize for the difficulties at launch and hope to make it up to you with a free PC game download from Origin.” We’re not just talking any of tripe from their backlog, they’ve gone all out offering some of their more recent and popular franchises including:
  • Battlefield 3
  • Bejeweled 3
  • Dead Space 3
  • Mass Effect 3
  • Medal of Honor Warfighter
  • Need For Speed Most Wanted
  • Plants vs. Zombies
  • SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition
There’s a whole lot of the number 3, but overall a decent selection to choose from. Players must register their game before March 26th; with the deadline for claiming a free game on March 31st. “We’re humbled by your patience and passion for the game. Thanks for building something very special with us, together.”
