    Same thing happened to me. I finally got to buy it now, after logging off and on again in the Origin app, but I don't know if that was what did the trick, or if I just managed to click the "buy now" button quickly enough, before it went to the base game?🤔

    Edge? As in Microsoft Edge or is there something else called that?

    I had to buy from the online store then go into the app and download from the list of games in your games library. I have no idea if any of that made sense but hopefully someone knows what I’m talking about.

    I am not able to get Strangerville either. It loads sims 4 digital when click to buy strangerville on origin.

    It doesn't actually officially release for a few more minutes. Maybe wait a bit and try again.

    I think we just have to wait until 10 AM California time (7 PM Central European Time).

    Just spoke to EA about this. Hyperlink problem in Origin. If you navigate to My Game Library, right click game and click "Game details" you can buy it from there. Just choose Game Packs at the top.

    I did this too. It's tough and it took me a few tries, but it can be done.
    Really? maybe there is something strange going on in the downloading as well as strangerville. creepy.. lol

    As @ChelleJo mentioned opening Microsoft Edge browser and going to Origin that way does the trick. I'd guess It'd work with whichever browser you use though. Mine's finally downloading now.

    @Rudiarose my Origin actually said it'd become ready for download at half past the hour. Its now well after that. It should be working. I think it may just be buggy for some reason.

    I went on the sims 4 website, but it says it's yet to be released 😥

    Ok, the logging out, logging back in trick worked and I was able to place my order. So thanks to the people above who suggested it! :D

    I have the same problem. Was gonna read the info and look at the things included (as I can't afford it until april or later) and it takes me to Digital Deluxe upgrade page instead when clicking.
  • alanmichael1alanmichael1 Posts: 4,114 Member
    I'm downloading!!! Just close Origin and open it again. It's available now.
  • jude72plajude72pla Posts: 784 Member

    With all the strangeness happening in that game pack it has to be a strange download ;)

    Hi everyone!

    That was a bit early - you should be able to purchase and download the game now :smiley: Log out and in again if you see any strangeness, or try in the Origin client instead.

    If that doesn't help, check this thread on Answers HQ - remember, technical issues belong to Answers HQ! I'll be closing this thread now.

    Thanks everyone!

    I can’t get it either. Every time I click on StrangerVille gamepack, orgin reloads the page and gives me the option to buy sims 4 as a gift instead. Thinking I’ll just try later today.
