The Sims 4 Gets 20% Off Code, Just in Time for Europeans

Published

 on

On Tuesday this week in North America EA launched The Sims 4 at the typical $59.99 list price. Tomorrow, September 5th, the game will go live world wide (yes this includes Europe too). As if by a strange coincidence, GMG, the UK-based digital retailer launched a 20% off coupon which now works on The Sims 4. While initially a no-go for those in North America, you can now grab a Sims 4 Origin key for $12 less than other digital retailers.

  • The Sims 4 — $48 (normally $60)
  • Use Coupon: NEVR14-U3AJ96-7004LF
  • Europe: €40; United Kingdom; £30

Act fast, Green Man Gamging’s coupon expires Friday, September 5th at 8am Pacific (that’s less than 14 hours as of writing).  The coupon works world wide, and while local currencies will differ the same 20% discount will apply. Those in Europe gets an additional 10% off on top of the coupon, while UK gets a hefty 24% off stacking with the coupon. Of course, if you do the currency conversion math you’ll be painfully aware of the regional pricing differences for these major AAA titles.

Launch day for The Sims 4 in North America were not withoutreported bugs. If you haven’t dived in yet, you might be in luck as the day one patch addressed a host of issues like problems going on a date with the Reaper, babies stuck in inventory, and build mode crashes.

Pokémon Developer Game Freak Emphasizes Original Game Creation

Pokémon

Game Freak, best known for the Pokémon franchise, is starting to emphasize and prioritize original game creation.

In an interview with Video Game Chronicle, Masayuki Onoue, a director at Game Freak, says that the company has launched Gear Project, an initiative in which developers pitch ideas during slower periods between big releases to create more original games other than just Pokémon.

Onoue also spoke about Production Team 1 and Team 2 at Game Freak, the first prioritizing Gear Project for the company as a whole and the second focusing on Pokemon. He noted that Gear Project allows the developers to gain more experience working on different platforms such as PlayStation, Xbox, and PC, as well as transferring new skills and techniques they learned back to the Pokémon team.

Some of the games that Game Freak has released so far through Gear Project are HarmoKnight, Pocket Card Jockey, Tembo the Badass Elephant, and Giga Wrecker. Game Freak is also developing Town, an RPG game that was shown off in a Nintendo Direct back in September 2018 and is due out this year.

Additionally, Game Freak is working on Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, the latest entries in Nintendo’s flagship franchise. Both of those are set to release later this year.
