Simcity 2013 and it's expansion pack question. [SOLVED]

Post by alifhaikal7 on Wed 17 Dec 2014, 15:39

Hi,

Recently, I bought a digital copy of Simcity on Origin. It was nice and I get to play online with my friends but after several days of playing, it gets boring without the expansion pack. So I was wondering if I download the torrent of Cities of Tomorrow, will I be able to play online? I apologize for my English.

Thanks! Smile

Edit:  Scratch it, I don't actually have friends on Origin Sad I played it with random people though. Add me on Origin if you'd like! Username: cybersim

Hello,


I assume you only bought the base game of SimCity5, without any DLC ? If so, then yes, there isn't so much content in it. You should have bought the "Digital Deluxe" version straight away, even if it costs a bit more. Because to my knowledge, it's similar as in Sims 4: you cannot add pirated DLC to a SimCity5 game on Origin, since everything is "registered" on your Origin account. Yes, you can "upgrade" your game, but that would cost quite a lot. Again, it would have been much cheaper if you bought the "Digital Deluxe" straight away.

If you still try adding pirated DLC, it will either not work at all, or you will get a prompt asking for a serial number...


Sorry to say that.

Hi,

Thank you for your reply! Unfortunately, Digital Deluxe is not available anymore. Only the original base game and the Digital Deluxe Upgrade which is separated. I bought this game because Origin is on sale currently lol. Yea, I tried to add the pirated DLC and it just doesn't show up in game.

It's alright and thank you for your feedback. If you or anyone found a solution, please share it with me and everyone. Smile

Now that's interesting...for me it is available. Maybe it's not available in some other countries though ? 

Anyhow, if you want a SimCity5 with DLC, you can look for pirated versions of it, but then you can't play online with it. I don't think there will be a real solution to this though, except the thing with the pirated version.

Probably Wat.

Oh well, I guess I have to wait for anyone to make a giveaway for it or I just have to set my money free from my wallet  Why God. Why God.

Thanks anyway! Smile
