Maxis general manager Lucy Bradshaw has announced that gamers who purchased SimCity between launch and the 18th March will be getting a free game as compensation for the game's rocky launch.
According to Bradshaw in the , "To get us back in your good graces, we’re going to offer you a free PC download game from the EA portfolio. On March 18, SimCity players who have activated their game will receive an email telling them how to redeem their free game.
I know that’s a little contrived – kind of like buying a present for a friend after you did something crummy. But we feel bad about what happened. We’re hoping you won’t stay mad and that we’ll be friends again when SimCity is running at 100 percent.
SimCity is a GREAT game and the people who made it are incredibly proud. Hang in there – we’ll be providing more updates throughout the weekend."
Bradshaw also revealed that EA had increased server capacity by 120% since launch.
