Do you like playing The Sims? Do you like playing things before anyone else does? Do you also like getting rewarded for playing games? Well, you’re in the right place, because EA is looking for Playtesters to help with new The Sims games.
Playtesting is a fun but serious job. You’ll be playing games and providing honest feedback based on your experiences and, as a little thanks, you’ll get a free reward from EA at the end of each test.
You don’t need to be a hardcore gamer in order to take part. EA are looking for all types of gamers – hardcore, casual, young, old, everyone. If you’ve played a game at least once, you’re eligible.
Hey Simmers! EA Playtesting is looking for Sims fans to participate in their Playtest events! Playtesters get to play unreleased games before anyone else, give their feedback, and receive great rewards for doing it! #EAPlaytesting ?
