EA Reveals Free Games Offered for SimCity Debacle
EA has announced which PC games will be offered free to SimCity players who aren’t thrilled with how the game has been rolled out.
For anyone who registers their copy of SimCity by March 25, head on over to Origin to claim one of these games: Battlefield 3, Bejeweled 3, Mass Effect 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Need for Speed Most Wanted, Plants vs. Zombies or SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition. SimCity owners will have until March 30 to actually claim their preferred game.
Maxis also added the following statement to the offer:
“At Maxis, our studio values dictate that we innovate and create something that is quirky, complex and challenging. Sometimes this bites us in the butt, but our servers are green and we’re seeing record numbers of players all online and having a great time.
“We’re getting great feedback from our fans and know that many of you are having fun and exploring this whole new expression of SimCity. We’re humbled by your patience and passion for the game. Thanks for building something very special with us, together.”
As it stands, SimCity appears to be getting a bit more stable, and EA/Maxis have restored the previously removed (non-essential) features.
