The Legacy Edition does not get updates, unfortunately. So even though the game files are being patched, there’s no practical effect on gameplay in the LE. That means no platforms or anything else that didn’t exist in Sims 4 a year ago.
On March 19, 2019, EA announced that it was ending support for versions of The Sims 4 running on non-Metal Macs and on 32-bit operating systems in June 2019. However plans for this were pushed back with no further announcements. However, on November 12, 2019, Patch 88 officially discontinued support for 32-bit and non-Metal systems, requiring all The Sims 4 content released after this date to be 64-bit or Metal compatible. The Sims 4: Legacy Edition was released on the same date – it is available only to players who run The Sims 4 on non-Metal Macs or on 32-bit PCs. All The Sims 4 content released before November 12, 2019 is compatible with Legacy Edition, but no content or game patches are compatible after that date. The Gallery, game banners, and social integrations are also disabled in Legacy Edition.
