The Sims 4 for MAC. [SOLVED]

Post by liaribeiro on Sun 07 Dec 2014, 16:37

Hey, guys

I downloaded The Sims 4 and was installing like an expansion pack of The Sims 3 (creating a dmg file and putting all the content of the rar file inside it), but there's no installation archive, just an .exe that my mac doesn't open.

I didn't find any topic about it here, so I start thinking there's no way to install The Sims 4 in MAC, is that it? :'(

Thanks!

Hi there, and welcome to the Games4theworld Forum! Smile

Yes, that's exactly right. There's no current way of installing The Sims 4 in OS X. The only way to install the game in a Mac is to install Windows in it using Bootcamp, and install The Sims 4 in Windows instead, I'm sorry to say.

Also note that OFFICIALLY, EA/Maxis haven't even released a Mac-compatible version of the game yet. So yes, you will need to emulate a Windows environment on your Mac compuer to play the game.
