EA has decided that everyone needs an opportunity to play The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection for free, and that is precisely what they're doing. You no longer need to be an owner of the game in order to upgrade to the Ultimate Edition, all you need to do is follow these simple steps and it's yours.
  1. Start by downloading and installing Origin. If you already have Origin you can skip to step 3.
  2. Not an Origin member? Create a free Origin AccountI-LOVE-THE-SIMS

And just like that you can be trapping people in rooms with no doors, removing pool ladders, and throwing the best parties in town. You have from now until July 31, 2014 at 10AM (PT) to get your free copy of the game. That means you should probably act super fast on this one.
