If you want to play The Sims 4 as soon as it's released, you can now pre-load the game on your PC, Electronic Arts has announced.
The option to download the game and have it ready to launch as soon as it's released is currently rolling out to everyone who pre-ordered a copy through Origin. When it's available in your area, simply launch Origin and hover your cursor over the game tile in your Game Library to check if it's available.
Once The Sims 4 is pre-loaded, your game will unlock when it launches in your region. If you live in the United Stated, that means 12 AM EDT on September 2, or 9 PM PDT on September 1.
Fans in other regions can find their local release schedule below:
- September 2: North America, Central Asia, and Russia.
- September 4: Australia, Japan, and Europe (excluding the UK).
- September 5: New Zealand, India, South Africa, and the UK.
