Countdown to the release of The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs (With different Time Zones)

There’s been a lot of confusion about the full release of The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs Expansion Pack and so we wanted to make it a bit more clearer by making this countdown post that includes different time zones.

In case you don’t know, this pack will release worldwide on the same day but with a staggered release across different time zones. Down below you can find countdowns for multiple time zones.

Central European Time (Midnight, November 10)

British Time (11PM, November 9)

Pacific Daylight Time (9PM, November 9)

Eastern Daylight Time (Midnight, November 10)

  1. What about if you have preordered apparently we can download it day before release but wot be able to play until its released

    • Yep so good thing I gave them my money early all for nothing. Never, ever, ever, ever, ever doing that again. There is no incentive.

      And they will just make us wait…and wait…and they cannot even tell time correctly in different time zones, so it is an even greater let down.

  2. The countdown is wrong? It is supposed to come out here in Norway at 00:00 10th of November and the clock says 1 day, 11 hours and 57 minutes. My clock here is 1:24 pm

  3. Hello!
    The countdown to 12AM eastern Australian daylight saving time is showing as 23 hours away when it is 10 hours away. It’s currently 2pm 9th Nov, 10 hours until midnight 10th Nov. 🙂

  4. I think the Australian countdown is wrong. It will be the 10th / 12am in 7ish hours, not 20… that would make it the 11th

  5. Mine says released at 9pm MST here in Canada -_- one more day well less than 24 hrs!! And my countdown begins !
    20hrs :10min : 50 seconds!

  6. I’m in Colorado, bought the game, tried to download and it says I have no internet connection. Which isn’t true. I can go on the gallery and everything. It won’t let me download please help!!

    • Log into your Origin and select the Pest Pack expansion. On the right you will see the time and date that it is released. I am in AZ, for example, and mine says: “Release date: November 9, 2017 10:00 PM MST”. It is currently 9:54PM my time.

      • well i have waited for 8 hours and origin still won’t let me download it and i have checked my delivery list and it says that its still progressing or something and it doesn’t make any sense because i preordered it so it should just let me download it. seriously origin makes me so mad sometimes.

        • I’m in the same boat. Delivery list says processing, the game has the “download” button but won’t let me download because apparently “internet connectivity issues”

  7. does anyone besides me have trouble with downloading it on origin? because mine have said all night that it can’t download because of the network connection or that i should try later but well i tried for 8 hours now and i don’t have trouble with the network connection

    • Nope! I’m having the same issue, tried running a fixing program through it and it checked the files, I updated the game, updated origin, nothing. I can use the internet through origin and through sims but when I try to download it suddenly I don’t have internet connection!

      • Me too! I stayed up all night (I’m Australian) waiting for it to come out, and as soon as it comes out- Nope, can’t download it. Connection issues.

    • Okay guys! I figured it out! Go into you’re EA account on a browser, and go to “order history”. If Sims 4 cars and dogs is listed as “processing” instead of “completed” CANCEL THE ORDER.
      Once you cancel, re-buy the game and download with Origin immediately. That’s what I did and I’m finally downloading the game!!

  8. Whyyyyyy i wannna get it early so dang bad but i cant shoot! I love this game so so much i play it every day and I bless the creators. U guys have rlly pulled it off and i play on ps4 igot it early so the day it can out i got it a day before! But i was thinking where is the pack on the ps4 thing where u can be a witch or mermaid or even a fairy plz tell me?!?!
