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

    Where did you hear about this?

    They usually release at 10am PST but apparently this one is releasing at 9:30. So potentially, 3 minutes left to wait; worst case scenario, 33. :p

    I think it's about time to be released. A few more minutes and it should be available on Origin.

    it's 12:34 EST and it's still not available. I thought 12:30 EST was release time.

    Same, I'm not seeing it either and if I type in 'Sims 4 Realm of Magic' into the search bar on Origin nothing comes up.
    Author of The Dark World series and yes, I make my characters in-game. :D

    I clicked on the game in My Library, and went to game packs. It showed up there before anywhere else.

    And there's an error when I try to buy it in game.

    This is infuriating!

    EA get your act together! COME ON!

    I don’t recall a game pack ever being out at 12:30 est before, it’s always been 1 pm est for me. Odd. Anyone having issues I’d wait about 20 minutes before panicking 🙂

    I'm East Coast US. I don't know if it takes some areas of the world longer.

    I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one having issues right now.

    Downloading now.

    Just go to your Sims 4 game in your library click on it and click on game packs and it should be in the list of game packs with it if it's not available in the usual listings.

    I went to my game library on Origin, chose Sims 4, clicked the drop down for "more", clicked "game packs" and was able to buy it there.
  • simfriend1968simfriend1968 Posts: 295 Member
    It is apparently available in some places, but is not on Origin yet.

    I did this and it worked for me. Library, then Sims 4, then "more" then "gamepacks"

    The easiest way to find new packs is to go into the Sims base game on Origin and click on the More button like this:

    Then scroll down and you should see the pack right away.

    Note: It is possible that you need to close out the Origin client and open it up again to get it to refresh for the pack to show up.
