The game will still be playable, but you’ll have to make a number of sacrifices. Existing players will have to download The Sims 4: Legacy Edition, a frozen-in-time version that uses the old standards. It’ll only work with add-on packs released in February 2019 or earlier, and online features like the Gallery, game banners and social tie-ins will stop functioning. You also won’t receive bug fixes. This is a not-so-subtle nudge to update your PC — EA is just making sure that you’re not completely left out if you can’t justify upgrading right away.
