Origin Deal Alert: Sims BOGO Weekend

In the quiet hours of the night, we sometimes find ourselves stirring with self-reflection about life decisions. What if I became a physicist rather than a writer? What if I’d moved to Stockholm instead of Baltimore? Would my life be better if I were a snowboarding vampire instead of an average aging uncle? We still don’t have time travel for revising the past, but we do have The Sims 3 to serve as a crazy way to play out the crazy game we call life.

This weekend, we have a new “Buy One, Get One” deal for The Sims 3 players new and old. Grab the base game (if you’re starting from scratch, I’d suggest grabbing one of the “The Sims 3 Plus” setups) or one of the eligible expansions from the below list:

The Sims 3

The Sims 3 Seasons or The Sims 3 Plus Seasons

The Sims 3 Supernatural or The Sims 3 Plus Supernatural

The Sims 3 Diesel Stuff

The Sims 3 Katy Perry Sweet Treats

The Sims 3 Showtime or The Sims 3 Plus Showtime

The Sims 3 Generations

The Sims 3 Pets or The Sims 3 Plus Pets


And you get one of these expansions or Stuff packs on us:

The Sims 3 Ambitions

The Sims 3 Master Suite Stuff

The Sims 3 High End Lot Stuff

The Sims 3 Town Life Stuff

The Sims 3 World Adventures

The Sims 3 Outdoor Living Stuff

The Sims 3 Late Night


I personally recommend one of the newer expansions (Supernatural or Seasons) paired with the excellent World Adventures for free. But no matter how you mix and match the bundles, you’re getting a fine deal on a new digital Skinner box. This weekend, enjoy making life decisions to your heart’s content and living vicariously through your Sims.
