Following the rocky launch of ‘SimCity’ EA and Maxis Games have decided to reward the patient mayors of ‘SimCity’ with a free PC download.
In a press-release sent out earlier today EA states, “We sincerely apologize for the difficulties at launch and hope to make it up to you with a free PC game download from Origin”. The promotion is for “every player that has activated their copy of SimCity”. Those players will receive an email that will give directions on how to redeem this offer, and you can also find more information below.
EA state that they will be opening up the “redemption portal country-by-country so some of you may see it a little sooner than others”.

If you don’t want to miss the offer, “you must register your copy of SimCity before March 26, 2013 at 06:59 AM GMT” according to the release. Then players must claim their free game by March 31, 2013 at 06.59 GMT.
