Support Ending for ‘The Sims 2’

EA announced that it is ending support for The Sims 2. The 2004 sequel shipped nearly 20 million copies across all platforms, and released eight expansion packs. While it is shutting down support for the game, EA is offering those with a registered Origin account a free copy of the most-up-to-date version, of the game – The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection.

That will appear in Origin in the next few days before support ends on The Sims 2 July 22. The Ultimate Collection also includes all the expansions and stuff packs, and allows players to transfer their save files.

EA says anyone who has "purchased and registered a digital copy of The Sims 2 on Origin will receive the Ultimate Collection."

    Wait, EA suppports the Sims games? I don't even want to guess at the number of hours I have wasted trying to make Sims 2 and 3 expansions work for my girlfriend. Every expansion brakes the previous expansion and even years later the problems don't get fixed. The first Sims 3 expansion was broken by every subsequent expansion and can only be played on a clean install. EA does a lot of shitty things but their Sims games are an outright scam.

    That’s cool The Sims 2 had a good run but let’s face it The Sims 3 was better. Only problem is The Sims 4 looks like it’s going be worse then The Sims 2 and 3.
