Sure it do! Confusedmileywink:

Running it on Win8 Pro/64-bit right now.  Absolutely no problems installing or playing.


We'll need more info about your install and what happens when you try to play before we can offer any useful advice.

I'm a volunteer, not an EA employee, so I can't get you any deals.
And remember: It's just a game. So play nice.
