I had the same problem. You should cancel your membership and pay for the game in origin. Standard smile

sims 4 in mac

★★ Newbie

I downloaded sims 4 in origin by becoming a basic member. When I bought the game, it was available for both mac and windows and I downloaded it. Now my purchase does not open because it says that it is only available in windows. And when I press the button that says download game for mac, it does not give a download option and I cannot download it and it sends me back to the same page where it says the game is only available for windows only. Can you please look into my situation or help me download the game for mac?

I've merged your post into this on in the Mac forum as a lot of new Sims Mac players are experiencing the same issue. Please see my instructions in the opening post for how to properly download the game. It sounds like you have subscribed to Origin Access which isn't compatible on Mac.

Origin Sims 4 Buy Game For Mac

★★ Newbie

Hiya,

 

I recently signed up to Origin to play Sims 4. I have downloaded Origin onto my Mac and when I attempt to play the game, it says that 'Available on Origin Access for Windows only. Buy game for Mac'. 

 

When I click on the 'Buy game for Mac', it takes me back to the screen that says 'View in Library', when clicking on this, it takes me back to the above, so, this is going in loops. 

 

Are you able to advise how I am able to play this game?
