EA ends 32-bit support for The Sims 4 but promises a Legacy Edition will release later this year
Electronic Arts has announced it is ending support for The Sims 4 on “non-metal Mac OS machines and PC 32-bit operating systems” from June 2019, but anyone affected by the changes and cannot upgrade will have a copy of The Sims 4: Legacy Edition “made available” to them.
“Apple has announced plans to phase out support for graphics processing technology called OpenGL and will be moving to a new technology known as Metal. Due to this change, we will upgrade The Sims 4 to work with Metal,” wrote community manager, EA_Mai (thanks, PC Gamer). “For those that cannot upgrade to a Metal supporting OS, The Sims 4: Legacy Edition will be made available to you.
“This update will also retire support for 32-bit Operating Systems,” they add. “We regularly evaluate our technologies, and to continue growing, improving, and optimizing the game, we have made the decision to retire 32-bit support.”
