The Sims 4 is going free

If your favorite pastime is living a life in the Sims world, you’re in luck! Get ready for even more real-life simulation fun because The Sims 4 will be free to play from October 18th. This applies to the base game so any additional content is not free. There’s still plenty to buy in this game, so expect more microtransactions in the coming months as The Sims 4 goes free-to-play.


So, is The Sims 4 free right now? For now, you can now play The Sims by purchasing the game from the Origin service or with an EA Play subscription. It’s still unclear if players who purchased the Sims 4 base game will receive rewards for their loyalty. While this is great news for Sims fans, it’s important to say that Sims 4 game packs won’t be free, and there are plenty of them. It remains to be seen how this will be resolved. As with some free games, we might see the introduction of the season pass.
