EA, owners of the popular game ‘The Sims 4’ have dropped the price of the game by 75% as a reaction to the coronavirus sweeping the globe.
The game, previously priced at £44.99 now costs only £11.24 – a massive reduction.
EA follows in the footsteps of other companies trying to do their bit amid the coronavirus crisis. The BBC recently announced they would be putting full boxsets of some of the UK’s favourite shows on BBC iPlayer.
As more of us are going into self-isolation, it’s great to ave companies make changes like this. Without the usual options for entertainment gone – even the ability to see friends – many have turned to things like online games or streaming services to pass the time.
‘The Sims 4’ is the fourth instalment of the popular life simulation game. The game allows you to create characters – their homes, their families, their pets – and control their lives. As we are all feeling a little out of control of our lives, this game might be the way forward.
Another fun thing about taking up ‘The Sims 4’ during this crisis: the ability to simulate regular life. Your sim can go to the cinema, even if you can’t.
Or, if you’re feeling a little more sadistic, why not simulate quarantine in the sims game? In a viral tweet, twitter user @johnnyberchtold suggested he had been ahead of his time in his playing of the game.
Maybe you can use the game to simulate this new and weird version of life we are living now.
