The Sims 4 Legacy Update Has Been Postponed

A few months ago, The Sims team announced that support for older 32-bit Windows systems and Non-metal Mac systems would be coming to an end this June. This meant that players with these older systems would only be able to play up to The Sims 4 StrangerVille game pack. Anything released after The Sims 4 StrangerVille would not be playable for users with the older systems. Instead, players would move over to, for free, The Sims 4 Legacy Edition.

You can read the full announcement regarding these changes and all the details here.

However, SimGuruDuke revealed on Twitter that The Sims 4 Legacy Update has infact been postponed meaning that players running The Sims 4 on the older systems will be able to experience The Sims 4 Island Living when it is released later this month.

Although The Sims 4 Legacy update will be rolling out at some point in the near future, this is great news for those who were unsure if they would be able to play The Sims 4 Island Living or not.

When more details of The Sims 4 Legacy Update are released we will be sure to update you with everything that you need to know.

  • I’m… confused. If adding more packs was problematic for 32-bit, and they were going to stop supporting 32-bit before this EP’s release and thus the EP wasn’t designed to work as well for 32-bit, then why let people get it and run it? If it wasn’t a problem, why push the Legacy update early? If it is a problem, why let people buy the EP, other than EA maybe seeing good hype and thinking it’s worth upsetting those people with a poorly performing product to get their $40 before cutting them off?

    It’s so confusing…
