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.
