Installing The Sims 3 without using origin

★★★ Newbie

I recentally bought the sims 3 game disc. I can not get it to install without using the origin client. I was not aware that I would have to be connected to the internet to install it. Please help am I doing something wrong?

Hi there,

Yes i think all EA games need to be online to be activated and most of them use origin to install, update and activate even if you use the disk version,
