The Sims 4, the fourth major title in the iconic life simulation series, is coming to consoles this November. Well at the very least Xbox One, and most likely PS4 as well. And maybe Switch too…maybe?
While publisher EA hasn’t made an official announcement about The Sims 4 coming to consoles, a new listing on the Microsoft store states that the popular game is Xbox One inbound on November 17, 2017.
As you may know, The Sims 4, developed by Maxis and The Sims Studio originally released back in 2014 for PC before hitting Mac in 2015. To date, the entry has sold an impressive 5 million copies worldwide.
Like The Sims 3, which after a PC release eventually came to a variety of consoles, players control their Sims in various activities, including making relationships, training for work, or cooking food. Seriously, if you haven’t heard of The Sims by now and don’t know what it is — you’re likely not even reading this in the first place.
For the fourth entry Create-a-Sim and Build Mode tools have been redesigned allowing for more versatility when creating game content. Emotional states also now play a much larger role in the series than previous games.
To date, three expansions packs — Get to Work, Get Together, and City Living — 5 game packs, and 12 stuff packs have been released, along with a variety of free updates that have added things like the addition of a toddler life stage.
In addition to the standard version of the game there is also a Deluxe Party Edition that offers three day early access to the game. Meanwhile, pre-order bonuses have been revealed, they include the “Perfect Patio Stuff,” featuring hot tubs, more fashion, and bonus décor. There is no word on a price-point or what expansions packs or game packs or stuff packs will be included.
