★★ Newbie

I have a problem with installing Sims 4 for MacBook. It says I can use it in pc and mac but when I view the game it keeps saying only for pc. How am I going to fix that problem?

Please see the opening post on page 1 for instructions on how to successfully buy and install the Mac version of the game. Origin Access is not available for Mac users.

@lamhi03

Which specific stage is not allowing you to click buy, can you post a screenshot?

So I am wanting to purchase sims on my MacBook Pro 2019 and from reading your posts I've seen that you don't want to subscribe so do I just purchase this?

I bought sims 4 today and downloaded it to my Mac but the play option in the origin is greyed out and when I try to open with the sims 4 app it says that I have to purchase but I already did. I tried to restart my Mac and origin app. How can I solve this?

Click on it and see the options. If they look like the screenshots in the opening post and you can buy it outright then yes.

@damlaaksuuu

I've moved your post to this thread, please see the opening post on page 1. It sounds like you may have purchased an Origin Access subscription instead of the game.
