Electronic Arts is now within touching distance of becoming the first games company to topple Cityville, the Zynga sensation that holds the record as the most popular Facebook game of all time.
According to Appdata, The Sims Social now drawn in 65 million monthly active users (MAUs) – the closest it has ever got to Cityville's current 71 million user mark.
However, both games are a fair distance behind Zynga's all-time MAU record.
