Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, May 22) — Arguably one of the most popular timesinks in gaming history is up for grabs for a week.

Popular life simulation game Sims 4 is free for download for the PC and Mac until May 28, (10:00 a.m. PDT), games studio Electronic Arts (EA) announced.

"In this beloved game, you’ll enjoy the power to create and control people in a virtual world where there are no rules," EA said in its website.

The game allows players to create people (called Sims), their families, their homes, and their communities, and control almost every aspect of their lives.

To download the game, players have to sign in to the Origin Store and download it using the Origin Client, EA's own digital distribution platform.

However, only the base game is free. Players must purchase expansion packs and downloadable content separately.
