It depends on various factors. Like how many packs and mods want to install. If you use all of the packs and mods (meaning, buy everything from IKEA and the NCCC) it will take up a lot of space. On the other hand, if you only use some of them or none at all, it takes up less space.
The Sims 4 is a game that has been downloaded more than twice as many times as SimCity, with it receiving the highest number of reviews on Steam.
The Sims 4 was released in late 2014, and after learning about how much space Sims take up on your computer’s hard drive, you might wonder if it’s worth the download.
So sit back and learn a little bit about this game without downloading anything too heavy!

Yes, Sims 4 is still free. To play the game, all you need to do is download it on your computer. But first, you will need to register an EA Account to download Sims 4. Once you have done that, the download and installation process will start.
And yes, this is also true for all other EA games like the Sims 3 and The Sims Medieval.
Is there still a limit to how many times I can play Sims 4?
There is no limit to how many times you can play Sims 4 as your game save file is stored in the cloud and will continue to be available even after updating or reinstalling it.
Sims 4 recommended system requirements
CPU: I strongly recommend Intel Core i5 or faster, AMD Athlon X4.
GPU: Nvidia GTX 650 or faster, AMD Radeon HD 7700 or faster.
RAM: 8 GB RAM minimum. 16 GB of RAM is recommended for large families and lots with a lot of Buy Mode items.
Storage Space: Minimum 30GB of free space. You need enough free space because there are some features coming up like expansion packs, skills, opportunities, career rewards. I strongly recommend having at least 1 terabyte of free space to have enough room for expansion packs, patches, and other updates.
Internet Connection: You need a stable internet connection for the game. If you have a slow or unstable internet connection, it is not recommended to play this game because there are many online features like multiplayer or the EA/Origin servers to download updates and patches.
OS: At least Windows 7 -10 SP1 64-bit or higher. It works well in Mac as well.
Recommended system requirements are that the game is run on a PC with a Core i5-4440 processor or better (4 cores is recommended for all-out CPU and GPU usage), 8GB of RAM, and a GTX 660 2GB or better GPU.
