The Sims 4 will be making its way to PC platforms next Fall, Electronic Arts confirmed in an announcement today.
The game is being developed at Maxis’ The Sims Studio, and promises to offer all new ways to interact with the game’s denizens; a host of powerful new creative tools, and all-new Sims with improved emotion and intelligence. Developer Maxis even aspires to craft a gaming experience where players control the mind, body and heart of their Sims. A lofty goal, indeed.
“The Sims franchise has the best fans in the world and their passion and enthusiasm is at an all-time high,” said Rachel Franklin, VP and General Manager of The Sims Studio. “Those millions of voices will fuel our development process, helping The Sims 4 to be the most ambitious and the best game our studio has ever made. We can’t wait to see our fans reaction when The Sims 4 comes out in autumn 2014.”
Pre-orders are currently being taken for the game, and will land players the bonus “Life of the Party” and “Up All Night” content packs when the game is released next Autumn.
