It was announced last week that those who purchased SimCity would receive retribution in the form of a free game. While many (ourselves included) speculated that it would be some old title from EA’s catalog (Assassin’s Creed 1, Army of Two…Madden 2007…), the company has gone above and beyond in their offering of one of eight games, five of which are recent releases:
Battlefield 3 (Standard Edition)
Dead Space 3 (Standard Edition)
Mass Effect 3 (Standard Edition)
MOHW (Standard Edition)
NFS Most Wanted (Standard Edition)
Plants vs. Zombies
SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition
Dead Space 3 and Need for Speed: Most Wanted are particularity impressive, still fetching quite the high price. The games will become available by 5pm PST/midnight GMT on Wednesday, March 20, a day later and Europe and two days later in Asia and South America. Those who authenticate their copy of SimCity by 11:59 PST, March 25 will see a pop-up window on startup with a link to the free game redemption portal and have until March 30 to redeem it.
