SimCity Mayors: Get Free DLC & More

SimCity Mayors: If you've been busy building and managing your cities, then you might have missed out on picking up any of the currently available DLC add-ons. Many of City Sets listed below are already included in the Digital Deluxe Edition; if you've been playing the regular edition of SimCity, then you can either grab individual City Sets a la carte, or upgrade to the Digital Deluxe Edition.

City Sets To Date:

British City Set

French City Set

German City Set

Either way, you'll want to redeem the free Nissan LEAF Charging Station. Think of it as a cheap (in terms of in-game money) happiness boost for your city. In addition to boosting the happiness of any Sims that uses it (and producing a onetime wave of happiness to surrounding businesses), the Charging Station only costs 5,000 Simoleons; won't take power, water, or workers away from your city; and as a final benefit, it won't produce garbage or sewage.

There are three ways to get the Nissan LEAF Charging Station:

1) The SimCity Launcher: Click on the advertisement, and it will take you to the SimCity DLC page for redemption. 

2) The SimCity In-Game Billboard: You can click on the billboard in the Menu screen, and that too will take you to the SimCity DLC page via the in-game browser. 

3) The Origin Store: You can go directly to the SimCity DLC page for the Charging Station and any other DLC you want here: http://tinyurl.com/cculs88.

However you choose to redeem the Charging Station, you will need to restart SimCity in order for it to appear in your game (this includes closing down the SimCity Launcher as well, if it is still open). 

Either way, now is a good time to enhance your copy of SimCity with additional content, and keep an eye on the SimCity DLC page for future packs and add-ons.
