EA Maxis' latest Sims instalment is now free on Origin with Game Time.

The latest game to be added to EA's Origin Game Time is The Sims 4. You can download the game for free and get up to 48 hours to try it out.

Origin's Game Time allows you to download and play games for a specific amount of time. The timer counts down as soon as you fire the game up and start playing, and continues even if you pause the game or stop playing, so make sure you set aside those 48 hours to get the most out of your time.

The Sims 4 joins other Game Time titles such as Battlefield 4, Titanfall, and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. Head on over to the Origin game Time page here to claim your free time.

In other Origin news this week, the platform's 'On the House' offering this time is the classic PC title Theme Hospital. It's completely free to claim for a limited time, so make sure you check that out too.
