Opening PACKAGE files

Did your computer fail to open a PACKAGE file? We explain what PACKAGE files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your PACKAGE files.

What is a PACKAGE file?

Files that contain the .package file extension normally contain computer game archives. These files store archives of Electronic Arts game files, such as the game's 3D model information, textures, character information, sounds and other game data.

Some of the EA games that use the .package file format include The Sims family of gaming software and the Spore game.

The .package file extension is also used by Microsoft Visual Studio to store its SharePoint application package.

In some cases, the .package file extension is also used for the Autopackage installer creation software. This software is used to create installation packages for different software programs. The installation packages created by this software are saved with the .package file suffix.
