If you’re still on Facebook you’ll no longer be distracted byEA’s Sims games .Soon you’ll be able to get back to keeping up with your friends’ gym time and status updates from people you haven’t seen since 1998.
Electronic Arts will be shutting down The Sims Social, SimCity Social, and Pet Society on June 14th. The reason given is, “After millions of people initially logged in to play these games, the number of players and amount of activity has fallen off. For people who have seen other recent shutdowns of social games, perhaps this is not surprising.”
Bejeweled Blitz, Solitaire Blitz and Plants vs. Zombies Adventures will live on so don’t say goodbye to the “worst company” in the country yet.
If you’re easily bribed you can ‘Like’ Company of Heroes 2‘s Facebook page and get access to the closed beta. After giving CoH2 a thumbs up, you’ll get a key that you can put into Steam and play.
Company of Heroes 2 is a real time strategy game set during World War II and with the Sims shutting down, now is a good time to play.
