EA Games Announces The Sims 5

Sul sul, Sims fans! 

EA finally announced the 5th installment of the beloved life simulation at yesterday’s Sims Summit. However, The Sims’ brand head, Lyndsay Pearson, pointed out that this is nothing but an early sneak peek into what will take years to develop and release.

That said, the game referred to as “The Renee Project” will most likely allow cross-platform play, with the first glimpse showing gameplay on mobile and PC. 

Fans worldwide have been buzzing about multiplayer mode for years. Luckily, Pearson hinted at this feature, saying creators can play on their own or with friends. But, expectedly, she spared the details, so we’re yet to see how the idea will progress.

Moreover, the exhibit previewed a rich update to the existing Build Mode. Now, Simmers can customize furniture more effortlessly by using an upgraded version of colors and patterns previously seen in the Sims 3.

Further details reveal that players could add individual pillows and move objects on their own axis, opening a new world of possibilities for Sims enjoyers.

Nevertheless, the brand-new features had fans comparing them to the build tools of an upcoming indie life simulator game — Paralives. Even though the game’s release date is still under wraps, it has caught the eye of many Simmers eager for change. Some rumours even suggest that the competition led The Sims team to push the announcement of their new game.

All in all, The Sims has been unparalleled for decades, which explains fans’ longing for a breath of fresh air into the game. 

Although The Sims 5 currently seems lightyears away, we’ll keep you posted. Until then, you can entertain yourself with The Sims 4, whose base game became free-to-play on October 18th.
