A new version of the popular online game The Sims 4 is coming to consoles and PC in the spring, with all new content, and new game modes.
The game is coming from SimCity studio Electronic Arts, and is a joint venture between EA and Take-Two Interactive, according to SimCity creator Eric Lippman.
“SimCity 4 is the game I’m most proud of, and the one I am most proud to be working on with our partner Take-22 Interactive,” Lippam said.
“The Sims is one of the best-loved and most beloved games in the world, and The Sims has always been about giving players the freedom to create their own worlds.”
Lippmans goal is to make The Sims game as open and accessible as possible, and he’s taking a step to that goal with the free release.
“There’s no pay-to-win,” Littman said.
SimCity 4 will be free to download for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, and will be available at launch on April 18.
Lippaman also announced that a new expansion will be coming to the game, titled The Sims 2: Sims 4.
“We are launching a new, highly anticipated expansion for The Sims called The Sims: The Sims Classic,” Lizzman said in a statement.
“It will introduce some exciting new features to the classic game, and we are also adding some new content to the core game.”
The Sims 3 is coming back for free download in April, and SimCity 3 will also be free download for PC players, according a post on EA’s official blog.
“For those who have already purchased The Sims, you will also have access to our new and expanded online service.
With The Sims 5, we have brought a huge collection of content for the fans to enjoy, including all-new gameplay and content features,” Lettman said, adding that it will be a free download.
Littmans goal with The Sims Legacy is to provide gamers with a fun way to create and play their own online games.
“I am incredibly excited to be bringing The Sims legacy to consoles, and am thrilled to bring the legacy of SimCity to the PC and Mac,” Litz said.
Litz told The Verge that his goal with Sims Legacy was to create a “sim-like” experience.
“This is going to be a very fun, simple, and immersive game,” Liz said.
The Sims and the SimCity franchise have been around for more than 40 years, and there are over 50 million copies of the original game sold.
SimTower was announced last year as a sequel to the popular franchise, and it is expected to be out sometime this year.
