The middle schooler in all of us is currently FREAKING. OUT. because we have been given the greatest gift of all time - The Sims 4 is FREE to download on Mac and PC for a limited time! You're lying if you say you didn't spend hours designing your Sims, building your house, and then subsequently ruining your Sims' lives on purpose (I KNOW I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE!!!!) as a child. Yesterday, The Sims' official social media accounts gave us the real life MOTHERLODE code, announcing that the game would be completely free to download until May 28th, 2019 on EA's official website. - and I mean, who doesn't love free stuff? The deal only applies to the base game though, so unfortunately if you want to any of the expansion packs you'll have to purchase them for full price.
Understandably, this announcement took all of us now-grown-up Sim lovers by storm - causing "The Sims 4" to trend Worldwide on Twitter yesterday. While most people were reveling in the free dose of nostalgia, some people were pretty salty that the game is being offered for free after they paid full price for it. Although unfortunate for these people, the situation obviously birthed some hilarious memes (most of which were clown related.) 🤡
Although the deal only applies to the base game, there are still tons of free mods that you can download to enhance your gameplay. A lot of these mods allow you to make much more realistic and detailed characters. Here are some of my favs, courtesy of some Youtubers who are far more talented than me.
Drake & Rihanna
Ariana Grande & Billie Eilish
Remember, The Sims 4 is only free to download until May 28th, so what are you waiting for?!
