EA Free The Sims Online

As I posted on Mental Gamers…
I remember back when The Sims were advertised on TV and I didn’t have a PC at the time, I wanted that game, but alas, it was not to be due to insufficient means.

I got a PC in late 2001 and bought The Sims – Collector’s Edition around mid 2002 and I was a happy bunny. After a while I thought, “Wow!, This would be great online.” and at the end of 2002, The Sims Online was born … but .. it wasn’t free to play. This was a setback since I don’t want to pay to play games online, so I had to give it a miss…

I would like to introduce you to EA-Land, a world that is free-to-play, and based on a re-engineered The Sims Online architecture. Yes, free. If you played The Sims Online before, we have played together and I would like you to rejoin us in the game: My avatar is MaxisLuc (yes, I work for Maxis/EA). At the beginning of last year I assembled a team to improve The Sims Online. After months of ongoing hard work, we can say proudly that we have been successful and we have made this game fun again!

  • Former Members Of The Sims Online: You can come back for FREE right now by just downloading the game and REACTIVATING your account. If you do so before March 2008, you will get your earned ‘account based’ privileges back (gifts, skill locks etc…) when we run our ‘amnesty’ program. So make sure you are in game before that event!
  • New to EA-Land and The Sims Online: Sign up for free!

I don’t care what anyone thinks, I’m a self-confessed fan of The Sims and to me, this is great news. For more info and links to anything and everything else about EA Land, visit the official EA Land site. See you online.. 😉
