expired SimCity Limited Edition AU$26.96 from Origin India (Download Only) + FREE EXTRA EA GAME


Paraphrased from this forum post with a couple of my own additions:

Get SimCity Limited Edition for AU$26.96 (if using a 28 Degrees Mastercard or other zero currency conversion fee card) from Origin direct (well their Indian online store anyway).

This should be the cheapest available price around (see forum discussion for comparison).


  1. If you have an existing Origin account, go to https://www.origin.com/au/account#about-me and change your country of residence to India. Now close and reopen your browser.

  2. Click through to: the Indian Origin Store and find SimCity Limited Edition.
    It should show the price in Rupees (1499 of them). If not, you've done something wrong. Add it to your cart and proceed to checkout.

  3. Enter all your details as per usual, except have the country set as India (should only show countries from that region anyway).

  4. ???

  5. Profit!

Order confirmation email took about 20 minutes to come through but the game appears in my Origin account instantly.

(btw, you can play it in English)

I forgot to mention, your purchase will come with another free EA game

The good news is that SimCity is a solid hit in all major markets. The consensus among critics and players is that this is fundamentally a great game. But this SimCity is made to be played online, and if you can’t get a stable connection, you’re NOT having a good experience. So we’re not going to rest until we’ve fixed the remaining server issues.

And to get us back in your good graces, we’re going to offer you a free PC download game from the EA portfolio. On March 18, SimCity players who have activated their game will receive an email telling them how to redeem their free game.
