We have some great news for fans of The Sims now, as EA has made your week a very happy one with the official confirmation that The Sims 4 is getting a release. The game will be out on both PC and Mac at some point in 2014 and it looks like the title won’t require an always-on internet either, compared to the much criticized Sim City game.
Fans of the real-life simulation strategy game will no doubt be delighted with the news, especially since it has been three years since we saw the release of The Sims 3 in 2009. That game is still considered to be one of the most addictive and popular PC games ever, so EA have their work cut out to improve on that with The Sims 4.
It’s a shame that The Sims 4 won’t have a 2013 release date, but then again – it is likely to be a massive content filled game that EA needs time to work on, especially if they are planning to allow offline-play without any internet connection hassles. That is obviously a massive plus for those that still have nightmares about the Sim City 2013 launch, and we’re guessing that EA has learned their lesson not to attempt a repeat of the situation.
EA promises new and intuitive tools for fans to use in The Sims 4, as well as various social sharing features that will keep you coming back for more with friends. Other than that, no further information on the game was released and certainly no gameplay trailer yet.
We’re guessing a full reveal will be coming at E3 2013 in June, so hopefully we’ll be able to bring you some proper gameplay features soon. In the meantime, give us your initial reaction to The Sims 4 coming out in 2014. Is it a must purchase for you, or have you moved on from the simulation genre?
