Install/Play Sims 4 or Any Sims Games on Multiple Computers?

Install/Play Sims 4 or Any Sims Games on Multiple Computers?

Origin allows you to have Sims 4 or any Sims game on more than one computer as long as you have the same account active on that computer. The game is tied to your Origin account, not a specific computer.

The games can be installed on multiple computers as long as they have Origin installed. Only one computer can be logged into Origin and actively playing any Sims game at one time.

Question: Can I play Sims 4 or any Sims games on more than one computer?

Answer: Yes. However you will want to remember to backup your Sims 4 folder onto a usb drive or an external drive to take back and forth between computers if you play on more than one computer, as Origin doesn't support cloud saves for Sims 4 at this time. - See how to back up the Sims 4 folder in the post linked below:

Important Note:

Sims 4 and other EA/Origin games are connected to your Origin account. So you won't loose access to the games you have purchased. Download and install Origin on your new computer and the games should be in the Game Library tab in Origin.

---- To install the game on another PC just launch the Origin Client and log into your account.  Click on the Game Library tab and right-click the game you wish to download.  Then just click the Download button and the game will start downloading and installing. 

After you've downloaded the game, you may want to back it up so you don't have to re download it later. Link below.
