Guess who’s back, back again. Oh yes, it’s official. Maxis (via owner EA) announced on their blog that the Sims 4 will be launching in 2014.
More details are promised to be forthcoming – you can also sign up on the Sims website for more details.
The next iteration of the Sims will be coming to PC and Mac. EA says
The Sims 4 celebrates the heart and soul of the Sims themselves, giving players a deeper connection with the most expressive, surprising and charming Sims ever in this single-player offline experience.
I have mixed feelings about the Sims – I remember not affording a shower and forcing my sims to wash their hands 5 times a day to keep that stupid hygiene bar up; or how about adding people to my neighborhood just so that my “main” family could get more friends. That said, I spent plenty of hours playing it, and I know a couple people who will be very happy with this as a gift in 2014. I’m just curious how many millions of expansions/DLCs will follow on.
Surprisingly (or not so surprisingly given the Sim City backlash), The Sims 4 will be a “single-player offline experience” according to the press release from EA. Have they finally learned some actual lessons?
