Sky-rocketing to become a cultural and gaming phenomenon back in 2000, the original Sims kicked off a series that has gone on to sell an astonishing 125 million+ units, becoming one of the most enduring and popular in history. With every expansion and base game released since, new gameplay concepts have been introduced to bring the virtual world closer to reality. Now, with the impending release of The Sims 4, that disparity between the digital and the real world is being minimised once again, promising a more dynamic and all-encompassing simulation experience.
The Sims 4 will introduced some key innovations in mechanics to realise that promise. Firstly, creating your Sim/s to your likeness, or that of anyone’s for that matter can now be better achieved with 18 touch points, allowing you to shape their physique to more accurately represent the diversity in size and form of the human body. Secondly, Sims can now multi-task, so relationships, for instance, can now be built while partaking in certain activities. And finally – and arguably most importantly – Sims have emotional states that change depending on their surroundings, the actions of others and of course, your influence.
In the new year…”New Emotions. New Smarts. New Sims Come To Life”. Be sure to watch their ‘Arrival’ below.
