The Sims 4 was confirmed just a few months ago with a first look at the game expected to take place on August 21. It looks like EA just couldn’t wait to show the next version of its popular The Sims franchise off, and has instead decided to show the game off during their Gamescom presentation today.
The Sims 4 will include an all-new emotion-based gameplay that is said to reinvent the Sims experience. The game was built on a foundation of new technologies that EA calls “Smart Sim” which will give players the power to create an control a new generation of Sims. As a result of the new technology, the Sims have evolved into emotionally intelligent beings and will convey a wide variety of emotions during play. Emotions play such a huge role in The Sims 4 that they will influence the gameplay both immediately and in the future.
The Sims 4 will make it easier and faster to build a home for their Sims, along with the ability to add fully-furnished rooms to their homes. Players will also be able to further customize their Sims, such as their face shapes and even their style of walk that will fit into their personality.
The Sims 4 is expected to be released in 2014 with pre-orders for the title available starting today.
