On July 22, EA will end support for The Sims 2. As a result, the teams at EA and Maxis are going to give all Sims 2 owners a free upgrade to The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection in order for all users to have the most up to date version of the game.

A user on NeoGAF posted the body of an email they received from EA on this particular matter.

If you too are a Sims 2 owner and have the game registered through Origin, you should also keep an eye out for a similar email.
