The Sims 3: Official EA Download Links for *Cumulative* Manual Updates

The way the game updates work is that only the base game and the most recently released and installed titleneed to be updated – the products in between are ignored as far as version numbers are concerned. You can manually update the other products in between if desired, but this is not necessary.All expansion and stuff packs released after World Adventures now come in only two game regions:

Region 1 – Disc Version (regardless of geographic location)
Region 7 - Digital Download Version (regardless of geographic location)
