The game wants to be playable, but you'll have to make a number of sacrifices. Existing players want to download The Sims 4: Legacy Edition, a frozen-in-time version that uses the old standards. It will only work with add-on packs released in February 2019 or earlier. You also do not want to receive bug fixes. This is a not-so-subtle nudge to update your PC – EA is just making sure you're not completely left out if you can not justify upgrading right away.
