Weekly Giveaway: The Sims 3

It’s that time: our weekly prize giveaway. Leave us a comment for a chance to win free game codes and other sweet prizes while celebrating your favorite games. Each Thursday, we post a new question—like us on Facebook to stay in the know.

Are you excited for The Sims 3 University Life? Your Sims could join a protest, host a bonfire party by the lake, or socialize with nerds, rebels, and jocks. Hanging out with each of these groups could help you unlock your dream job, or an extra trait. What traits would make your Sims lives more awesome?

Most simmers create a version of themselves in The Sims 3 when they first use “Create a Sim”, but some get creative to model their Sims after existing pop culture icons, historical figures, or movie characters. To enter to win a free copy of The Sims 3 for PC/Mac download (remember, this title supports dual-platform play for Origin users who have both platforms), give us a brief description in the comments below of what sorts of characters would inhabit your Sims dorm or home. Entries must be posted by February 24th at 11:59pm PT to be considered.

The Origin team will pick five (5) random commenters to win this week’s prize. Please note, only one entry per person is permitted for each giveaway, and only residents of North America, aged 18 and older, who are not EA employees or affiliated with an EA employee, are eligible. Winners will be contacted via email on their registered Origin/EA email address to claim their prize. Good luck!
