The Sims 4 crashing or server issues

The Sims 4 was released in North America first on September 2, 2014, followed by Europe and Australia on the 4th, on the 5th the UK release was available and it was released for OS X worldwide February 17, 2015. Are you having The Sims server issues? This seems to be the main problem when it comes to this game, and here on Down Today you can report within the Sims community.

This simulation video game developed by The Sims Studio and Maxis published by EA never made it onto the console, by December 2014 1.10 million copies were sold worldwide but this wasn’t enough to stop EA closing its doors to the studio that created The Sims. Even so, this will not impact The Sims 4 players, new experiences as well as other expansions packs and updates will continue.

When it comes to the main issues with the game, servers going down are the most impacting as well as The Sims 4 crashing on gamers around the world. If you have any problems at all with The Sims 4 playing, not downloading or anything else please do share below.

    The Sims 4 released on May 6 , 2013 so when is number 5 coming?

  • Lorna

    My friend called me last night chatting about life, she went on for like an hour discussing about bad people are to her and that life isn’t fair just to realize in the end she was talking about a flipping game called The Sims.

  • Mark

    I am playing Sims on my tablet iPad and it keeps crashing on me. This is the first time it has ever happened to me.

  • Janette

    Not really liking this game anymore, got bored of it. When is SIMS 5 coming to release?

  • Dalton

    SIMS is a complete let down and i will never buy a new one if they release it. Keep on crashing is not my idea of immersive fun.

  • Lola

    This is happening to me tooo

  • Larry

    SIMS keeps crashing on me, when is SIMS 5 coming out?

  • Kellyah1

    Installed the new update and now when I try to play the game a message saying ” The sims 4 game has stopped working. A problem has occurred that the game isn’t working properly.” I didn’t have a problem before I updated Origin. Now it won’t even work. This is BS.

  • Patricia

    Since the latest update gameplay on SIMS 4 has been all over the place, just keeps crashing on me.

  • Lottiecakes

    This happened to me, but I found that leaving it for an inordinately long time (longer than before it was updated) allowed it to kick itself into action eventually. Annoyingly it opened (eventually) in windowed mode which seems to have slowed the load time down considerably.

    In short: be patient and give it at least 10 mins (not even exaggerating sadly!)

  • Jen

    installed the new update today and now won’t open properly. Tiniest window appears that can’t be maximised or anything and then not responding

  • Kerry

    sims 4 keeps crashing on startup for me, it happened before when I saved, but since I cannot even load it after the last update.

  • Lorna

    Moving the mod folders will have no affect Chase. I tried it and it doesn’t make any difference.

  • Chase

    Since the Origin update Sims 4 has stopped working when it tries to start. Is it worth moving the mods folder or something?

  • lisa

    How come sims 4 households are not saving to my library?

  • Blaine

    I tried to download The Sims 4 on OS X but it seems to take forever, how long should it take to download install and then play?

  • Showa

    There was a new update in Origin but since i done this i cannot open The Sims 4, now it says not responded and then closes on me.
