The Sims 2 has been around for the last 10 years and only now has EA decided to stop giving it technical support, starting on the 22nd of July. Sims 2 players who own the digital version via Origin will be provided with The Sims 2 – Ultimate Collection for free. This includes all the expansion packs and stuff packs that have been released over its 10 year cycle.
“Going forward, EA will no longer be providing any new content or making any additional technical updates to The Sims 2.”
“The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection is being given out to any gamer who purchased and registered a digital version of The Sims 2.”
This is not a farewell to the classic Sims 2 as people are still able to play it happily. EA have decided its time to give up supporting it, leaving the final state of the game as it is now. EA still ask those who have issues with the game to contact EA Help. However, EA will most likely only assist in set-up and installation issues, not in-game technical issues.
This Rooster Teeth series, The Strangerhood, is one of many great experienced to come from The Sims 2.
