How to Download The Sims 2 For Free in 2024 (PC)

the sims 2 characters with text that says download the sims 2 for free

If you grew up playing The Sims 2 like me, then it’s a game that brings up so many good memories and nostalgic feelings.

Unfortunately, EA stopped selling the game online in 2018, so anyone who doesn’t already have the game has to find a workaround to play it.

But you’re in luck because unlike the rest of us, who paid a lot of money for all of the expansions, you can actually download The Sims 2 full version FOR FREE!

Sims 2 Download:

The Sims 2 for PC is now considered abandonware, which allows websites to share downloads of old games that would otherwise be lost to time.

Here are two legitimate, virus-free websites that offer a free Sims 2 download:

Both of these downloads are for the Windows version of the game since you can still buy The Sims 2: Super Collection on the App Store for Mac.

Other Options for Playing The Sims 2 in 2024

If you’re uncomfortable at the thought of downloading abandonware through a random online website, you do have some other options:

  • Find the game in your local thrift store or a used game store
  • Buy it used on Amazon
  • Buy it used on eBay

This may be obvious, but it’s something I often forget: most new computers don’t have a disc drive, so you’ll need to purchase an external one to download the discs to your computer.

If you have any questions, let me know in the comments, and I’ll try to respond as promptly as possible!
