The Sims 4 - Update on Supported Systems
[ Edited ]
EA Desktop Team


The Sims 4 Legacy Edition is available now. Please, see the updated FAQ below for more information.




Dear Simmers,


Today we are announcing some changes to the supported specifications for The Sims 4™ on PC and Mac.  Later this year, we will no longer support The Sims 4 on Non-Metal Mac OS machines or PC 32-bit Operating Systems.


Apple has announced plans to phase out support for graphics processing technology called OpenGL and will be moving to a new technology known as Metal. Due to this change, we will upgrade The Sims 4 to work with Metal. For those that cannot upgrade to a Metal supporting OS, The Sims 4™: Legacy Edition will be made available to you. Please see the FAQ below.


This update will also retire support for 32-bit Operating Systems. We regularly evaluate our technologies, and to continue growing, improving, and optimizing the game, we have made the decision to retire 32-bit support. If you are a PC player who cannot update to a 64-bit OS, The Sims 4: Legacy Edition will be made available to you. Please see FAQ below.


We want to thank all Simmers who have played or are still playing The Sims 4.
