EA reveals free SimCity compensation games

EA has revealed a list of games being offered free of charge to SimCity players as compensation for the title’s disaster launch.

Any consumer who purchases and authenticates SimCity by March 25, 2013 at 11:59pm PST will receive a token to download a digital PC version of one of the following games:

  • Battlefield 3 (Standard Edition)
  • Bejeweled 3
  • 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

SimCity owners will be granted access to a free game portal in waves beginning this Wednesday, March 20. All users will have until March 30 at 11:59PM PST to redeem their free title. Check out this EA FAQ for information on how to do so.

EA said last week that it was nearing the "all clear" on the crippling server issues that have ruined the SimCity experience for many users.

We said in our SimCity review: “SimCity's a mess of moving parts, occasionally clicking into place and allowing for brilliant experiences before coming undone and tearing everything down. With updates to both server stability and the game itself, SimCity's wonderful moments may be able to overtake the bad ones to create the best game in the series. But if those don't come, EA's bustling metropolis may end up a ghost town.”
