EA Finally Apologizes For SimCity Fiasco With A Free Game [Updates]
As a consolation, EA is offering all players a free game from EA’s PC portfolio. On March 18, EA will send an email to players informing them of how to download a free game. Bradshaw acknowledges that this move is “a little contrived – kind of like buying a present for a friend after you did something crummy.”, but it’s bound to leave a sweeter taste in your mouth if you bought SimCity and couldn’t play. EA is also hoping that the community “won’t stay mad and that we’ll be friends again when SimCity is running at 100 percent.”
EA promises that the game will be at 100% soon, and at the very least, the company is doing something to soften the blow for gamers, even if it still refuses to issue refunds to people who purchased the game through EA’s Origin.
Did you buy the game and couldn’t play? Do you feel a free game is a good consolation?
