The Sims 4: How To Fix Game Lag

Sims 4 options menu

The Sims 4 has grown exponentially since its initial launch., With every new game, stuff or expansion pack The Sims 4 requires more space on your PC. More packs can be a reason for slower game performance.

Another reason may be due to custom content and mods slowing your game down. When you experience lag, it may be worth temporarily disabling your custom content and mods to see if that fixes the issue.

A quick fix many players utilise is opening the options menu and then exiting straight away. Sometimes the options pop-up can reset and recentre your gameplay. You can also lower your graphics settings in-game to relieve some of the pressure on your PC.

If these soft fixes don’t help, you may need to end unnecessary background processes with Task Manager or even update your graphics driver.

You can also verify the integrity of your game files which will command your PC to look for any corrupted or missing game files. To do so on Steam, click on the game from your library list, select Properties and choose the Verify Integrity option from the Local Files tab. For Origin, right-click on the game from your library and click Repair.
