(Video) How to play Sims 4 without internet connection

December 2017 - last edited December 2017

When I uninstalled Origin, I lost all of the games and when I click on the desktop icon, it does not recognize the new installation of Origin. I have to pay to go online and I do not want to have to stay online to play the game. Get the error message "Oops, something went wrong". Should be able to play the game without having the internet connected.
