Will the sims 4 + cats and dogs work on my computer?

[ Edited ]

I would like to know if the Sims 4 and the new cats and dogs expansion pack would run on my new Windows 10. It is a fairly expensive game, so I wouldn't want to buy it and then suffer the frustration of lag and glitches. I have enough RAM, but all the other requirements are too technical and complex for me😂, so if someone could give me an answer I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi @Timberwolf099172

 

the OS is not the issue with your computer. It's the amount of RAM and the processor which is borderline to the min specs. It may run but only on minimum settings and with Pets, I might be even really choppy.

 

If you don't have the base or pets, I would not spend any money on it.

 

What you can do is download the Sims 4 base demo and see how that runs. You can play for free for 48 hours.

That's a bit borderline, especially the processor.

 

Can you play the base game ok ?

I actually don't have the base game yet, I want to know whether the game and the expansion pack would work on my computer since several sites on the internet say that the base game works fine on their Windows 8, 9, and 10.
