The Sims 2 US website.

TheSims2.com Logo
TheSims2.com was the official website for The Sims 2 games and expansions. Game patches were available there,[1] and it offered free downloads of custom content including lots, neighborhoods, items, and Sims on the Exchange. Other features included: Community Chat, Community Boards (BBS), PodCasts, The Sims 2 Store, LOLSims (a parody of LOLCats)[2] and information about upcoming events (or game releases). TheSims2.com was monitored by Maxoids.

On February 1, 2011, EA announced that The Sims 2 Store would close as of March 31, 2011 and therefore, support of The Sims 2 Store Edition had ended.

As of July 17, 2011, attempts to visit TheSims2.com resulted in a screen with color bars and a message saying that the site was closed for maintenance but as of August, an error page similar to The Sims 3 website appeared. Attempts to visit sub-sections such as the BBS or the Exchange failed.

TheSims2 .com farewell message

The Sims 2 goodbye message

The site returned on September 29, 2011. On December 15, 2012 EA announced that TheSims2.com would be closed on January 14, 2013, and it was permanently closed on that date. Attempts to access it will result in a redirect to The Sims Portal. It appears that The Sims 2 website was redesigned to The Sims Portal.[3]
