Can I play The Sims 4 Snowy Escape Expansion Pack Trial with The Sims 4 Trial?

Yes. If you do not currently own The Sims 4 and haven’t previously used The Sims 4 Trial, you can claim the 48 hour trial from Origin and the Snowy Escape Trial and try out everything in one go.

Why does it ask me to Restart The Sims 4 when switching between Trial Saves and my existing Saves?

The Sims 4 will ask you if you want to restart your game so that it can include or exclude the Snowy Escape Trial from your current session.

Selecting to restart when going back to a non-trial save will keep the Snowy Escape Trial on your PC/Mac for when you want to come back to the trial later. When you want to play with Snowy Escape again, load a saved game or start a new trial save and you’ll be asked to restart the game so that Snowy Escape can be included in your session for as long as the trial is available.

Can I use my saves with the Trial?

Yes. If you want to put Snowy Escape into saved games you have already created, you can. Simply select your Save from the LOAD screen on the Main Menu and when asked if you want to PLAY WITH TRIAL? Select Yes, Start as New Trial Save. Once you do that, The Sims 4 will make a copy of your save to use with the trial and lets you save your progress without affecting your original saved game files.

I created a new Trial save based on my existing save, how do I tell the difference?

If you load an existing save while using the Snowy Escape Trial, we will copy your save and rename it for you so that it can be identified as a Trial save. Once you have loaded your save, you can hit Save to finish applying the Trial to your save game. If you do not save your session, you will still have a Trial save but it will not use Snowy Escape and you will be able to use the save without the Trial content.

What happens to my Trial Saved Games when the trial ends?

Your saves created while using the Snowy Escape Trial will still be available after the trial ends. If you choose to add Snowy Escape to your collection, you will be able to pick up where your saves left off.
