Here is how anyone can get The Sims 2 Ultimate Edition for free

If you have an EA Origin account then you can now get The Sims 2 Ultimate Edition for free, as part of a recent policy change by the game publisher.

This news comes just a week after EA's initial plans to offer a free digital version of this Sims collection to all users who previously purchased The Sims 2, as the company will no longer offer content updates for the sequel and its expansions. EA changed this policy, however, as not everybody who purchased the original title was able to redeem their copy of the Ultimate Edition.

Now the game is available for all current and future Origin account holders. If you don't already have an account, you can sign up for one online and still download the release. It's a limited time offer, however, that's set to expire on July 31.

The Ultimate Collection upgrade will include the main game alongside all of the expansions that have been released since the launch of The Sims 2 in 2004. Over the past 10 years, a total of eight expansions have launched, including University, Nightlife, Open for Business, Pets, Seasons, Bon Voyage, Free Time and Apartment Life. The upgrade will also include all of the "Stuff" packs that have been released in that time, which feature additional items, furniture and clothing.
