Maxis’ SimCity has released DLC through Origin which helps in game characters after a natural disaster hits the players city. The £7.99/$9.99 DLC adds a Red Cross building, tents and vehicles into game.
The downloadable content includes a Red Cross Relief Center, tents and two vehicles that will travel around a player’s city in response to a natural disaster. When a meteor strikes, an earthquake occurs or a tornado touches down, Red Cross tents will appear in various locations throughout a player’s city. Sims that would otherwise have been critically injured are instead offered aid at the Red Cross relief tents. As the city recovers from the natural disaster, the Red Cross tents will disappear. Each disappearing tent will then release 10 healthy Sims back into the player’s affected city. Ambulances, fire trucks and police cars will continue to protect a player’s city alongside the Red Cross services.
British, American, Danish, German, Spanish, Italian, Finnish, French, Norwegian and Swedish Red Cross all benefit from the sales of Red Cross DLC with at least 80% of each sale and a minimum of $100,000 going to the charity.
HOW IT WORKS:
This Red Cross set will be available for one year starting on September 17, 2013. Throughout this year-long campaign, EA will give at least eighty percent of the player’s payment (less applicable taxes) for the Red Cross downloadable content, with a minimum of $100,000, to support humanitarian services of the participating Red Cross National Societies.
