Yes but you need to update the operating system, preferably to High Sierra or later.

SIMS 4 won't play using MAC

★★★ Newbie

I downloaded Origin Access, installed the game, updated the game, repaired the game, and it still won't play. The "PLAY" button is a faded orange, even with right click, the play button is faded. I do have an EA account and I have updated my MAC as well as uninstalled and re-installed Origin. I have run out of options, at least the ones that are available.

How come, which bits don't you understand? Origin Access is only available for Windows users. To play the game on a Mac you must purchase the base game outright but Origin does not make this easy as it likes to push users towards subscribing to Origin Access, which of course is useless for us.

The instructions in the opening post explain how to avoid subscribing to Origin Access and navigate through to buying the base game.
