September 17 - We just released a small patch for The Sims 4 on PC/Mac - click here for more details.
September 13 - It's Friday, so what do I have for you? A Friday Highlight - here!

It's release day... why can't I buy Realm of Magic?

It's September 10th, and I can't buy Realm of Magic. Usually Sims add-on content is accessible after 8am Pacific time, but there is no option to purchase this game pack! Am I missing something?

    I’m in the UK too.

    According to the Sims Community:

    Game packs become available and listed on the Origin store at around 9:30AM PT / 18:30 CET / 17:30 BT.

    So I guess we have to wait until 5:30pm tomorrow :(

    Thanks, I was also wondering this (in the UK). I had been hoping for 12am our own times (like most other DLC games out there) but I guess I kind of knew it wouldn't be like that and being that much further from PST that we would have to wait longer. Guess it still isn't as back as the Australians and New Zealanders that probably won't get it until the 11th.

    GPs never release at midnight unfortunately. EPs only. For the UK around 5.30-6 pm should be correct. :)

    Aw man! And I'm one hour ahead in Denmark so have to wait until, what 7pm? But I remember getting Paradise Island at midnight... That might have been because I preordered it in Origin though... Don't know if that would have made a difference...

    @Ejemima That's because that was an EP and RoM is a game pack so doesn't come out at midnight

  • Catwho30Catwho30 Posts: 105 Member
    Sorry I meant the 10th. I had wondered if it would show up at midnight like a lot of them do. thanks for the times.

    I could be wrong, but those was my experience with EA orign, but it's up and down or they changed mind, depend on who people control over this game upload to internet.

    Hello Fellow Simmers!
    Does anyone know what time we can start downloading from Origin? I've been checking off and on since around 2:30 AM eastern time. I have to leave for work soon and hoped I could get a game started!

    Seriously! I've been waiting and waiting... is it out yet? I can't find it on origin and the countdown page from simscommunity isn't loading for me. Let me know I'm not alone please! :'(

    10am PST.

    ETA: I'm also seeing reports that it will release at 9:30am PST, which would be a departure from past releases, but hey...the earlier the better.

    The release time for this pack is either 9:30 or 10am PT (unsure which, I'm in a different timezone), so there's a little longer to wait with this one.

    Only 5 more minutes to worldwide release —Gamepacks are different than Expansion packs.

    Oh! Thanks! I didn't see a specific release time posted anywhere on the site, or in forums. I guess I'll just wait until the option to purchase is available to find out when that is...
