by William Schwartz


EA has just announced the list of games that players affected by the bungled Sim City launch can select as compensation for their trouble. Today, every player that has activated their copy of Sim City will recieve an email with instructions on how to redeem their free game. EA plans for a worldwide redemption portal to be live worldwide by March 22nd.

Here’s what Maxis had to say: “Our SimCity Mayors are incredibly important to the team at Maxis. We sincerely apologize for the difficulties at launch and hope to make it up to you with a free PC game download from Origin. “At Maxis, our studio values dictate that we innovate and create something that is quirky, complex and challenging. Sometimes this bites us in the butt, but our servers are green and we’re seeing record numbers of players all online and having a great time.”
