Most of you have probably heard by now that EA have been offering a new Sims 2 Ultimate Collection for free via Origin, to anyone who has any Sims 2 game. The Ultimate Collection is a compilation of Collection Packs, meaning that it contains all of the Sims 2 EPs and SPs, and it was also promised to include exclusive content, although no-one seems to have found any exclusive content yet.
Well, from today until Thursday 31st July, EA are offering the Ultimate Collection for free, to absolutely anyone!
For instructions on how to get your free copy of Ultimate Collection, click here. You will have to install Origin to download and install Ultimate Collection, unfortunately.
If you want to keep playing using your disks, register for UC but don't download it.
Having both regular game and UC installed at the same time will break at least one of them, and uninstalling either will partially uninstall both. Once you've registered the code, that's all you need to do - UC will stay on your Origin account until you want to actually install it.
