The Sims 4 is Free to Own Through May 28

Ever since The Sims 4’s release in 2014, the latest entry in the popular life sim has received plenty of free and purchasable updates and expansions, expanding the already plentiful opportunities for players.

At the time of its launch, our review didn’t look too fondly upon the release edition of The Sims 4, instead suggesting potential players “wait for the inevitable bombardment of expansions before diving in.” Now, nearly five years later, EA is offering the base game of The Sims 4 for free through May 28 on Origin, allowing new players to spend their money on the myriad of expansions now available that will help flesh out the game’s potential.

The Sims 4 is also available on PS4 and Xbox One. For a look into a few of the aforementioned expansions, check out our reviews of Get Together, Cats & Dogs and Seasons.
