How to Play/Start the game with No Internet?

To play Sims 4 you need to be logged into your Origin account, regardless if you want to play online or offline.

Please Note: Each time you open Origin while offline you will need to sign-in to be able to play
games. You may need to occasionally connect Origin to the internet to verify your account.

Go to the Game Library tab to see all purchased games, including Sims 4 or any other Sims game. Click the game you want to play, and select play.

- If you're offline or without internet, again you can still play. You will need to log into your Origin account with the email and password used to purchase or register the games. It will open up the client in offline mode. Just like above, go to the Game Library tab to see your purchased games. All games should play like normal with exception of the online features, these won't be accessible.

After installing or reinstalling Sims 4, you need to log into Origin, select Sims 4 and click Play, then exit the game. This will create the Sims 4 folder in C:\Users\Username\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 

To Play offline, try these tips:

1. Start with the computer connected to the internet, so Origin can be put in offline mode.

2. Log into Origin with your username and password that you used to purchase the game.

3. Click the word Origin (in the upper left corner of the screen) and select Go Offline.

-- This should give the note that Origin is in offline mode in the upper right corner of the screen.

4. Disconnect the computer from the internet. Then exit Origin. [Click Origin, and select Exit.]

5. Launch Origin and sign-in. Then you should be ready to play any of your Origin games.

To go back online, click the word Offline Mode (in the upper right corner of the screen) and select Go Online. [Make sure your computer is connected to the internet first]

If you're still having problems playing the game offline, please post in the thread linked below:
