Currently only available for PC and Mac, The Sims 4 will soon be releasing for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Expected to release Nov. 17 for current-gen consoles not named Nintendo Switch, Electronic Arts says The Sims 4 on PS4 and Xbox One will deliver the same emotional connection PC players currently enjoy as console players will be just as empowered to create and control people in a vibrant virtual world as they experience life’s unpredictable and entertaining moments along the way.
“The addition of a console-version of The Sims 4 has been long-awaited by fans and newcomers alike, and we at Maxis are beyond excited to bring The Sims to new platforms,” said Executive Producer, Lyndsay Pearson. “The game delivers a beautiful The Sims experience on console and comes packed with tons of the fan-favorite content, so players can look forward to the unique gameplay, self-expression, and fun that have come to be tentpoles of The Sims brand. The possibilities to play with life are as endless as the players’ creativity.”
As with The Sims 4 on PC, console players can experience and test life’s limits in a world where there are no rules. Fans will have the power to create unique Sims, customizing everything from their hair color and style to their fashion choices and life aspirations. With the room-based Build Mode, players can design and pick décor, effortlessly building their dream home. In the mood to explore? Sims can check out the various neighborhoods and dynamic venues the world offers.
The Sims 4 on console gives players the unique gameplay the PC base game has to offer, as well as many of the additional content updates added to The Sims 4 post-launch. EA says that post-launch content and game updates are already planned for the console versions of The Sims 4.
The Sims 4 on PC originally launched in late 2014.
