Bootcamp should boot Windows on the Mac, preventing OSx from bootin, and instead booting Windows, so the game should not recognize it as OSx. And many people have been using Bootcamp to run The Sims 4 on Macs. So, if you can, use Bootcamp.

★★★ Guide

You can try running Bootcamp. That is basically Windows on your Mac. It will install and play then.

According to the EA live chat advisor I spoke to it will also not run via Windows on a Mac. The game will still recognize the OS to be Mac and will not install.

Wish you all the best.

What are you talking. It clearly says on the dvd cover "AVAILABLE AS DOWNLOAD FOR MAC! INSTRUCTIONS INSIDE"...??????!!!!!!

 

IF THIS WASN'T ON THE COVER I WOULD NOT HAVE BOUGHT IT.
