To get to individual patch pages, please use the navigation table at the bottom of the page.
|Tip: Each of these updates were included in later expansion packs. Players with Superstar, Makin' Magic, or The Sims Complete Collection do not need any of these updates. Players with Unleashed, but nothing later, do not need the Hot Date or Deluxe updates. Players with both Deluxe and Hot Date do not need the Hot Date update.|
The Sims 2Edit
The Sims 2 featured an in-game notification system where a player connected to the internet was told if a new version of their expansion packs was found. EA released only one update for each expansion pack and one for the Family Fun Stuff Pack. Each patch was independent of each other and not cumulative. There was also one for the Exchange to fix an uploading issue.
The Sims 3Edit
With The Sims 3, EA is releasing updates more frequently than previous games, even between expansion releases. The Sims 3 is a hugely complex game and bugs or glitches are bound to happen. The Origin downloader comes with the game and players that use the Launcher to start the game will be notified of any new updates. The Sims 3 patches have not only fixed bugs, but also added or improved on existing gameplay features or interface elements for the base game.
|Tip: Since Patch 24, players don't need to install a separate patch for every expansion and stuff pack they have anymore.|
