Product Code

★★★★ Newbie

I bought Sims 4 when it was free on Origin and played it all the time, I recently went about a couple months without playing it and when I went to open it today, it said I needed a product code. I went to the confirmation email I had and it didn’t have a product code. It won’t let me on it any other way and I have no clue what to do.

Are you on PC, Mac or console?
Have you checked your library on Origin?
Are you sure you log in on the same account, where should be your game?

Re: Product Code

@dakota02mason   If you "bought" the game then you should be able to find the the transaction in the purchase history in Origin. You may have downloaded a demo version of the game which only allows you to play for a certain time. I don't recall the game ever being free but I do remember a demo version that allowed you to play for a month I think. You can contact EA customer service - customer service to verify what version you have.


I do not work for EA or associated with EA other then helping other users in the forums.
