This issue should be fixed. If you still encounter the issue, please post here:  Can’t Start Game Process  with the following info

  • Packs installed:
  • Version of OS X:
  • DVD or Digital Download version of latest release/installed pack


When I try to start the game, I’m getting the following error message

Game process could not be started 


This issue seems to be connected to an error with the EA servers.


Try disconnecting from the Internet and play off-line. Seems to work for both Download and DVD version but you might run into issues on the Download one.

You can turn the Internet back on after you’ve started the game and login.

For some it also work to simply ignore the message and play anyways.
