Problems with Snowy Escape

Problems with Snowy Escape

According to some Facebook and Twitter messages the new expansion pack causes lag and even complete shutdown of the game.

This seems to be acknowledged by Electronic Arts and a new fix is to be expected within 2 weeks from now

So it’s not your computer or our downloads.

According to EA you can (temporarily) solve the problems by turning sound off in the options menu


Official Electronic Arts remark about bugs in Snowy Escape

Hi, Simmers. Following the latest game update, we have noticed an uptick in crashes on PC, Mac, and especially PS4. We are working on resolving the issue as quickly as possible and appreciate your patience. The current ETA is next week. Meanwhile, in the options menu switch off the sound. It means you won’t have any sound, however the game should run without the audio-related crashes.
If you find concise reproducible steps for getting a crash or for audio going away on its own, your input would be very helpful
We are sorry about this disruption. Thank you for your help and patience.SimGuruNick
