You can now pre-load The Sims 4

The Sims 4 is coming in a mere few days, and players can already get excited. They can start up the downloads so that the game is ready when the game launches tomorrow (or Thursday or Friday depending on your location).

Over on Origin, players are advised to prepare for pre-load; by pre-ordering the game you can start your downloads already and play the second that the game is released in your area. Sounds good to me – even with slow download speeds you should be able to get in on the building, creating and weird story-telling fun.

This means that the long wait is finally almost over. The Sims 4 is being launched this week and many people will appear to fall off the face of the Earth as all they do is play through their Sim’s lives. Time for bizarre creations and all kinds of strange characters to take form. It should be a lot of fun for fans, and if you really really can’t wait, pre-loading is definitely the way to go – at least then you can click play the moment the game launches.

How long do you think it will take for EA to announce the first batch of expansions? I’m betting on a pools and backyard BBQs expansions first. Or do you think it will be a costume party/ Halloween expansion just in time for October? Either way, the long period of anticipation and teasing is finally over – the game is basically upon us and Sim fans can rejoice, and start their downloads.

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let’s get on with it!

    I saw that logging onto Origin this weekend. But my Fiance already bought me the game from Kalahari. Got a bit of a bargain price for it.
    So I will have to wait, most likely only next week to get my Sim on! 🙂
    But I am still a bit nervous as to what to expect.
    Did the media get any review copies of the game, or does the embargo cover that as well?

      Dutch….sims……DOES NOT COMPUTE

        No, in fact it makes perfect sense. In a world where gaming has degenerated into a played one game you played them all type of world, the Sims is refreshing in that no playthrough of this game has to be the exact same. Kind of like Mass Effect. Minus the awesome gun play, of course.
        Plus The Sims, if you think about it, is about the only one of it’s kind game out there. Unlike FPS or RTS or RPG game that’s spawned like millions of clones, there is only one life simulator out there worth getting…
        Sure, other people have tried to emulate the Sims. The guys that did the Singles games tried (and failed) as did Playboy the Mansion to a degree.
