I Can't Install Sims 4: City Life!!

★★★★ Novice

So I've been having trouble installing Sims 4 City Life into my game, and I wouldn't be here if I hadn't tried everything.

 

I popped in the disc and redeemed my 16 digit code as you do and confirmed that the game was City Living. But nothing happened after that. There were no prompts or instructions that would normally follow.

So I went into my Games Library, right-clicked my Sims 4 base game and selected Show Game Details so show the games I already have installed. 

Where City Living is, instead of saying Installed, it just says Unlocked. I don't know how to progress from there!

People have said that you can hover your mouse over the grey "i" icon but that's not working either. 

I've also tried installing it from My Computer but it leads me straight back to that standstill with Origin.

And I've even tried to have a live chat with an EA Game Advisor but was waiting for AGES. TWICE!

 

Does anyone know what to do?

 

My game is all up to date; it was the first thing I did before inserting the disc. 

 

:'(

I want an answer too - I pre-ordered and now the game isn't available to play.  What *. It was supposed to go live today.  Origin get your act together.

I've figured out why I'm having so much trouble.

It's not released yet. 

It comes out today at 11PM in the UK so, because reasons, I'm just gonna have to wait.

Same here, keeps saying to check my internet but I have. I've been trying unsuccessfully to download this for the last 6 hours. Anyone managed to install yet?
