[ Edited ]

Log into Origin (or download it, if it is not already on your computer)  and check under the 'My Games' tab for your purchased games. 

 

Please make sure you have "Show: All Games" in MY GAMES selected. Have also a look at "Hidden Games" because manually hidden games will not appear in the "All Games" view.

You'll then be able to right-click on the game image and if a particular game is not already installed on your pc, you'll see the option to download.

 

Hope this helps.

Re: how to redownload my game from origin?

@green4dj 

 

sometimes uninstalling origin and then reinstalling origin can fix that issue or try upgrading to origin beta version

 

Launch Origin and log in with your account
 
- Click Origin in the top left (main menu)
 
- Select Application Settings
 
- From General tab, scroll down to "Update to the beta version if available" and tick the checkbox
 
- Restart Origin

Re: how to redownload my game from origin?

Are you sure you have downloaded the origins app to your new pc, not just checking on the Origin Website. Make sure you click on the top right corner of the website where it says"Download Origin.

... also, under order history on the website, in top right corner, there is a drop box. Make sure  "all" is selected. I am currently downloading my Sims on another PC.... no issues.

 

Best wishes

Re: how to redownload my game from origin?

I had a similar issue with sim city. What I found to work was right clicking on the game, and then clicking 'repair game'. it went through a phase of 'verifying files' then when it worked out what was missing it began to download.

Try this and see if this works,
