I BOUGHT SIMS 4 TODAY!!

Post by alibeasley on Wed 17 Sep 2014, 02:14

I LOVE the game. It's so much fun Smile I was going to wait until you games4theworld could get it out, but I decided to go ahead and get it. Very much worth it. 

I do have a question though. Is there a download just for the game? And if you have a product code, can you just enter it? Or would you have to download the game straight from Origin? I hope that question make sense.

Hi there! Smile

So, you are asking if there's a way to download the game that is not Origin? Yes, I think there is (or was) one. However, may I ask why don't you want to download it from Origin? If you already have the game, it's a lot more convenient to get it from there, or installed through the disk. And you need Origin installed anyway for the game to authenticate. If you have a product code, you just need to enter it in Origin and the game should be added to your library.

In other words, I think you can get it from somewhere else, but you need Origin anyway. Why take the trouble to download it from another source?

I hope I understood the question. Good luck! Very Happy

Hello alibeasley,


Yes, I saw someone having retail discs for the game. You can install the game with the discs, but you still need to install Origin after that, in order to "activate" the game. Indeed, there isn't much practical relevance between "downloading from Origin" vs. "retail disc versions".

You always have to activate a retail game via Origin.

Well adding after what Carlos said, After you Activate the game on Origin, you could always redownload the game if anything were to happen to the original disc.
In order to do this, You download Origin and go to redeem game i believe and put in the product code. If that isnt it, i will look into it.
They did this a long while ago, so that people who bought the disc version would have the best of both worlds.
