SimCity has not had a smooth launch and that’s putting it lightly.
So EA wants to make it up to buyers by giving away a free PC game to anyone that activated SimCity before March 18. The highly anticipated city building simulation have been crippled by server issues since launch with many players not being able to play, which was what Diablo 3 experienced when launched.
It’s build as an online game so having a stable and fast Internet connection is a must this time, at the same time alienating those that wants to play it alone offline.
EA is still trying to fix all the server issues and to make up to some angry customers, they will be giving away a free PC game download from their catalog.
