If I bought my Sims 4 "base" game as a cd, can I buy the expansions off of origin, or will it not be compatible?

Re: Expansions


Hi @lmalcova


yes, you can absolutely mix DVD and downloads.


When you buy the DVD version (make sure the package is sealed), you'll also be given a code. The code is the important part. You will need to register that through Origin and then you can either install from DVD or download through Origin.

Happy Gaming
