This is EA's way of saying sorry for the server issues that rendered the city-building game unplayable for almost a week after it launched on March 5.

"At Maxis, our studio values dictate that we innovate and create something that is quirky, complex and challenging," the company said in a blog post today. "Sometimes this bites us in the butt, but our servers are green and we're seeing record numbers of players all online and having a great time."

Here's the full list of options:

  • Battlefield 3 (Standard Edition)
  • Bejeweled 3
  • Dead Space 3 (Standard Edition)
  • Mass Effect 3 (Standard Edition)
  • Medal of Honor Warfighter (Standard Edition)
  • Need For Speed Most Wanted (Standard Edition)
  • Plants vs. Zombies
  • SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition

Not included: an offline version of SimCity.
