Hello and welcome to the forum @emmakarlsen93,


Navigate to Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 and delete the file named GameVersion.txt there. Then try the game again. Good luck for now !

Thank you so much @The_gh0stm4n!!!! 


I really appreciate you taking the time to help us. I was wondering if you knew anything about the toddler update/vampire DLC? Are they going to be released on this site at the same time? Much love.
