Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle is not compatible with the Legacy Edition

In news that should come as a surprise to absolutely no one, The Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle Expansion Pack which is due to be released on the 5 June is not available for Mac users running the Legacy Edition. If you are running the Legacy Edition save yourself the money and grief and don’t pre-order it or buy it when it is released. Nothing you do will make it work on your machine. There is no fix or workaround. If bundles are available and they include Eco Lifestyle, you will not be able to run it. The system requirements are very clear on the Origin site and state that a Metal supported Mac is required. For those still living under a rock, Legacy Edition is for Mac users whose Macs do not support Metal.

OS: Metal required. Mac OS® X 10.11 (El Capitan)
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz Processor or better
RAM: At least 4 GB RAM
HARD DRIVE: At least 15 GB of free space with at least 1 GB additional space for custom content and saved games
VIDEO: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680, AMD Radeon RX 560 or better
INPUT: Keyboard and Mouse
ONLINE REQUIREMENTS: Internet connection required for product activation.

One thought on “Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle is not compatible with the Legacy Edition

  1. Indeed, not a surprise.
    Just like it isn’t surprising the 64bit version of sims3 for Mac isn’t released yet. And not talked about anymore.
    Will the pandemic be the excuse to drop the ball on that ? Bets are open !
