However, this offer is only open until 28th May 2019 (Thursday), after which it will revert to the original retail price of $49.90 (RM209.15).
To get your hands on The Sims 4, you will need to visit Origin.com, where you will be prompted to create an EA (Electronic Arts) account. It will then lead you to install the publisher’s download platform, Origin, after which The Sims 4 will be ready for download!
This is such a great deal if you ask me!
First released for purchase in 2014, The Sims 4 allows players to customise each digital character (called Sims) by selecting their facial features, hair colour and even different outfits for different occasions. Players can then guide their Sim through various aspects of life such as physical and personal growth, academic and career choices, building friendships and relationships, and even starting a family of their own.
What’s more is that players can also build their own houses and decorate it according to their personal preferences as there are a variety of choices for them to choose from.
With players being given the power to manage every aspect of ‘life’ in The Sims 4, it’s no surprise that they instantly get hooked and sucked into this virtual world that probably depicts their very own dream life.
However, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of The Sims 4 are not included in the free offer.
