The Sims 4 is coming to console on November 17 this year. Released way back in 2014 on PC and Mac, the console version will include the base game plus some of the post-launch updates that fans of the series have enjoyed over the years, with other (and new) updates to follow periodically.
Pre-ordering grabs you the Perfect Patio Stuff pack and if you can’t wait for the release date, then EA are offering three days early access to the game for those that pre-order the Deluxe Party Edition, which also includes additional cosmetic items.
EA Access fans are also looked after, with up to five days early access via EA’s Play First Trial – as to how long that trial is or how much content is available remains to be confirmed – but I’d imagine it will be the standard 10 hours access.
For the first time, players will be able to create and play with a group of Sims, and explore a beautiful European inspired world, making new friends and living it up.
Brand new to the Sims franchise, players will be able to introduce their Sims to a variety of clubs, and other Sims with distinct interests, behaviours, and personalities. If, however, they cannot find the perfect club for their Sim, they can create ans customise their own clubs.
The new world players will be able to explore Windenburg, with its sprawling hedge maze at the garden chateau, stunning pools along the bluffs, and mysterious ancient ruins, as well as lots of socialising.
Taking their Sims for a gossip at the local cafe, visit the pub to play games, dance the night away at the disco, and much more, there’s always something fun to do with your Sims.
The Get Together expansion will require the original Sims 4 to play, on PC and Mac. EA have yet to announce a release date.
