The Sims 4 was originally released in September 2014 and will celebrate its 5 year anniversary later this year. The game is the latest iteration of a franchise that has been around since 2000.

The free Sims 4 promotion only applies to the base game and does not include popular expansion packs like Get To Work, Cats & Dogs, and Seasons. Those can be purchased separately through Origin after installing the base game.

Prepare to neglect all your responsibilities and kiss your weekends goodbye when you download The Sims 4 completely free here before May 28.
