EA Reveal SimCity Red Cross Charity Pack, 80% Of Sale Price Goes To Charity

/ 5 years ago


EA is being the good guy once again and has unveiled another stunt that will no doubt do good things for its public image. SimCity will get a Red Cross charity DLC pack which will cost $9.99. EA has pledged to give 80% of the post tax profits on the Red Cross Charity pack to the participating Red Cross National Charities, they also claim they will provide a minimum of $100,000 irrelevant of how well or bad the DLC pack sells.

The DLC pack itself includes a relief centre, tents and two emergency response vehicles. In the event of an in-game meteor strike, earthquake or tornado the Red Cross tents automatically  appear to provide aid to needy sims.

“In the event of a natural disaster (meteor strike, earthquakes, or tornado), having the Red Cross set will cause Red Cross tents to automatically appear all across a player’s city. Sims that need aid are instead given aid at these Red Cross tents. As the city recovers from the natural disaster, the tents will disappear. Each tent that disappears releases 10 Sims back into a city. Ambulances, fire trucks and police cars will protect a player’s city in addition to Red Cross relief services. “

Only 10 Red Cross national charities are participating so the pack is available in only 10 countries which are – the USA, UK, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Spain and Sweden.

The SimCity Red Cross DLC pack will be available to purchase for a year.
