Buying Physical Version of TS4. [SOLVED]

Post by Michelle801 on Sat 11 Jun 2016, 20:15

(I don’t know if this is the right place for this question, but feel free to move it :])

Hello, everyone! Michelle801 here, I’ll make this quick, If I buy the physical version of TS4, would I be able to still add the game/stuff packs like we were able to do with The Sims 3? Or has that been changed?

Because I don’t want to waste money only to find out I can’t add them (I’m pretty sure it has changed and is now a lot harder to add them, I just want some clarification)

TLDR; Would buying a physical copy limit me to only having the base copy

Thank you very much for taking your time to read this, have a good day. Smile

Hello @Michelle801,


If you buy e.g. a legit Sims 4 base game on Origin, you cannot add pirated DLC "into" the account. You can add the DLC by copying and pasting the folders into the install location of the game, but then: what is the point in buying a base game, when you can pirate the base game as well ? 

The legit Sims 4 game doesn't give you any benefits apart from the gallery-access, but even that is going to be tricky to use. 

I would suggest you save the money for something else. Smile  Closely related to your question, have a look at my "reminder" here:
