The only way to get this deal is through the Origin client.
To get the game for £3.74, follow these steps:

1) After signing in, click the 'Origin' tab at the top left corner of the client.
2) Then click 'Launch Featured Today...'
3) This will show you a couple of different deals. Find the one which states
'Get 75% off SimCity!'
4) Finally, click 'Save Now' and you will see SimCity priced at £3.74.
5) Proceed with the purchase.
6) Play the game!

(The GET DEAL link is the download page for the Origin client, so if you already have the Origin client downloaded then you don't need to download it again.)

Make sure you add the free version of Sim City 2000 to your account if the offer isn't appearing for you!

Just worked for me, needed to start the "Launch Featured Today" a few times to get it to come up though.

How do you do this in the Mac Origin client? I see no 'Launch Featured today' button...

**** Origin, my account was hacked, £31 was taken from my bank account, it was finally refunded, then a week later they decided to ban me from all EA online activity.

Did you setup the enhanced security options?

They still charge you the full price if you go for the complete edition. (_;)

I'll probably give the game a go at this price.

simcity 2000 is free on there

Not at the time, I didn't know they existed, I have it setup now, after a phone call and explanation that the receipt for the purchase was in german they refunded my account, yet took the decision to ban me a week later, deeming me unable to play Fifa online on my PS3 and XB1 and Titanfall on my PC

Fair comment, but not with the stated Fifa 15 issue.

I was an early adopter for this game, got mugged off, you cant even rotate a frickin building, stick to the free one you get and wait for this Cities:Skylines

cannot see the featured today is this expired??

You sure its not because you keep buying indian games? Maybe wrong about you personally but their always being posted here. Apparently pretending to be Mexican or bangledeshi warrants saving a few quid.

Origin/EA have repeatedly stated that they arent bothered about region locking and using vpn to unlock early. They still suck though!!

Digital future huh!

I've only ever bought one on Origin mate, and I would possibly associate the two had the timing of the FIFA purchase and the suspension not taken place so closely, I can only assume that the intention of the person who purchased the game on my account was to sell the players on the Ultimate Team as no password change or anything occurred.

Found it eventually.... had to click about 10 times before it showed up. Keep trying if this happens to you.

Thanks OP

Seems like a good game until you max out the city space and have to concentrate on making as much money as possible.

A good price, but the game just doesn't have the longevity of previous installments.

Got it thanks!

Great price, been waiting for it to come down to silly money to buy. Heat & Thanks!

Gave 7 odd quid before Christmas. Love the game. I know it gets a bit of flack (Or a lot) but I really enjoy it. The attention to detail is amazing, I zoomed to street level last night and even the back of the bin lorries have the proper flashing/pulsing amber lights (I know I'm easily pleased)

It's not without problems, my main city is now unplayable as it seems certain regions can become buggy for no apparent reason. Typical that it's my city with about 150 million simoleons lying in it

Cities of tomorrow is also worth a go. The game looks stunning, here's my buggy city before the meltdown :

I've been playing since the good old days :

And to add insult to injury, my main city had a bit of a nuclear disaster which took many hours to clean up and then it started to crash. I am pretty p***** the more I think about it

Is this expired? I don't see the 75% off in my featured today. Will keep trying like another poster suggested.

Took a few attempts, but I downloaded Sim City free edition, then the 75% discount appeared.

Can't see it in my featured today either

EDIT- You have to download the free one as mentioned, it then appears in featured today..

That did it! Thanks!

Can get this on Mac

thanks

Awesome - I'd disabled the featured today - Thanks for posting

Cheers got it. Though EA double charged me so have to sort that now!

Double charged me as well!

Thanks very much!

Thanks OP for reminding me I already have this game

Doesn't seem to be working now.

great deal, managed to grab it, did the trial over Christmas regretted not getting it, so glad they did another deal.


still working... but I already have it, though not yet tried.. but for this price awesome! was hoping the cities of tomorrow was also super cheap but unfortunately not..

Sim City 2000 only available on Windows so doesn't seem to work on Mac (whenever I click 'View - Featured Today', it just says, "Sorry, there are no featured items available for you today").
