Gamescom 2013: The Sims Get Emotional in The Sims 4

Electronic Arts put one of its longest running franchises at the forefront of its Gamescom 2013 press conference today, unveiling The Sims 4. Set for launch in 2014, EA said The Sims 4 will feature “revolutionary sims,” “emotion-based gameplay” and all new creative tools to immerse players into the world of simulated humans like never before.

Executive Producer Rachel Franklin described The Sims 4 as the “next generation” Sims game, highlighted by characters with a full range of emotions, emotions that are impacted by the environment as well as their interactions with other characters. In a brief on-stage demo, Franklin demonstrated how a piece of provocative artwork in one Sims’ home led to a conversation with another Sim, flirting, and finally romance.

Franklin also detailed a new “sculpting” tool that will allow players to fully transform their character’s appearance, from height and weight all the way to nose size. In addition, players will be able to customize their Sim’s walk to match their personality.

Keep an eye on the official The Sims 4 website for more details.

Yes I think the Sims has evolved, I’m all about building and creating home so I like this new title as being easier and faster than ever, picking pre-designed rooms and plopping them together to create a house. I think this is a day one purchase for me. The thing that bothers me though is that all this time the graphic barely look any difference from 3. Let’s just hope for a great gameplay.
