How do I transfer my SimCity to another PC

★★★ Newbie

The PC I installed to is not up to scratch (graphics card) so I need to transfer the game to my other PC. Is it possible/ How is it done?

Download Origin on your second PC.  Login with the same account.  Download SimCity.

 

You can install it on as many comps are you want but you can only run one at a time.

 

The saved cities are stored on the servers.

★★ Guide
  • Install Origin on your new PC
  • Take a flash drive or an external hard drive.
  • Copy the 'origin/origin games' from your old PC directory to the drive
  • plug the drive into the new PC
  • Transfer it to the appropriate place on your new PC.
  • Profit!

There may be a small residual download, or a 5 minute wait while Origin checks your files, but it's a lot quicker than downloading the game again.
