No more Sims 4 Legacy Edition but a native Apple silicon version finally. The April 2023 patch brings big updates.

EA released a big patch for The Sims 4 today, 18 April 2023, patch no. Not big in size (around 500MB) but big on impact.

The Sims 4 Legacy Edition – It was announced back in November 2022 that the Legacy Edition (LE) of the game would be sunset. As of 12 December 2022 the LE was no longer available to download although users could still play it if it was already installed on their machine. From today the LE version of the game will no longer run, even if installed. The game will now only run on Metal supported Macs (2012 models or later, or earlier upgradeable Mac Pros).

Apple silicon equipped Macs (M1, M2 etc.) – The game is now natively supported, no need for Rosetta 2 to translate the Intel version.
