How do I update the Sims 4?

★★★ Newbie


This probably seems like a silly question but I cannot figure out how to udpate my SIms 4. I have no idea where to go to update it. Is it in the actual game or when I login to Origin. Can't find it! Someone please help.


Thank you in advance.

When I try to update the sims 4 it says, download failed no matter what wifi I am on. I believe it may be my computer, i have also tried repairing it and it says the same thing.

Maybe it's not your computer but some problem with your Origin
Uninstall Origin in the "add / remove programs" option
Download Origin once more from here
and install it.
I don't work for EA

Hi @CookieArtist,

This thread is a few years old. There's been a few patches and updates since this thread was first made making it unlikely this issue is caused by the same thing. Could you pop open a new thread please and include what you're seeing at the moment as well as what steps you've already tried to help the game update. We'll close this thread out in the meantime to limit necroposting.

Thank you,
