Free SimCity DLC offers sponsored Nissan Leaf car dock

Sponsored DLC offers in-game happiness for displaying a company logo.


Maxis is offering sponsored DLC for SimCity, starting with a free Nissan Leaf charging station.

No Caption Provided

In-game, the Nissan Leaf charging station offers no real downsides--the building generates happiness without requiring power, water, or workers. It doesn't generate any waste. The in-game advertisement does, however, feature a prominent Nissan logo and fills a player's city with Nissan's electric Leaf cars.

"Plopping down the Nissan LEAF® Charging Station will add happiness to nearby buildings," says Maxis. "Adding the Charging Station will not take power, water or workers away from your city. Zoom in to the streets of cities and players will start seeing a percentage of their Sims from all wealth classes driving the electric vehicles. The Charging Station produces no garbage or sewage as well making it pollution free."

Any SimCity player interested in the Nissan Leaf charging station can download it for free from Origin or the in-game store. The content will be available for the next six months.
