The Sims 4 available for free for limited time

Want a goofy game where you get to play around with virtual people in a virtual world? The Sims 4 is an interesting game where you create and control people in a virtual world. You can give your simulated people careers, relationships, control their houses and neighborhoods, and provide all sorts of other customizations to your virtual humans and their environment, which they will live in and interact with.

Sound fun? Great, because for a limited time (until May 28, 2019) it’s available as a free download for Mac and Windows PC!

Click the “Get it Free” button and you’ll need to create a new EA account or sign-in with an existing one.
