If you did not claim your free copy of the game and its expansion packs during the promotion, then Sims 2 will no longer appear in your Origin account under “Free Games.” If you did take up the offer when the promotion was active, then The Sims 2 should still be available in your Origin account.

  • What should I do if I am still having Radeon-related visual glitches?

    Steam, Origin, EA and Maxis stopped support for The Sims 2 and all of its 18 extensions in 2014. At the time, there were visual glitches that were related to Radeon products. Those glitches were never fixed and are still evident today. This is especially true if you have a disc version of the game rather than digital copies.

  • Why are there gameplay elements in the video trailer that are not in the installable game trailer?

    The video trailer of the game is of the full Sims 2 game, whereas the installable and playable The Sims 2 Trailer is just a playable preview of the game. The video trailer shows elements from the full Sims 2 game.

  • Does the The Sims 2 Trailer include any of the 18 expansion packs?

  • Why does the The Sims 2 Trailer look so much like recent version of Sim City?

    The graphic are similar to the Sim City games, and the vehicles look identical from a distance, and this is because Maxis created both the Sims games and the Sim City games. Similar gaming engines, similar models, and similar pieces of code were used to build both the Sim City world and The Sims 2 world, which is why the games have similar looking graphics.

  • What language are they speaking in the The Sims 2 Trailer?

    Some say that they are speaking Swahili, but the fact is that the language is completely fictional. It was created by the development team as they found that hearing the same phrases repeated over and over was annoying, so they made up a language of their own to help remove that annoyance. It does have some phonetic similarities to Swahili.

  • Where can I learn what the symbols mean when I play The Sims 2 Trailer?

    The best method for learning how to play the game is through trial and error testing. Plus, if you hover over the symbols with your mouse clicker, then you will see short descriptions of what each icon does or means.

  • How come there are tools and elements faded out?

    Most of the game elements are faded out or do not exist within the game because it is only a preview of the game that is supposed to get you interested in the game. It doesn't have full game features because it is not a full game.
