The producer walkthrough for the final Sims 3 expansion pack, Into The Future, is now available to watch!
Rachel Franklin spoke to Polygon about the next instalment in The Sims franchise, The Sims 4!
The addition of multitasking isn’t the only change coming to the sims with The Sims 4. Perhaps the biggest change is the ability to directly effect a sims emotions.
The emotional gameplay was driven by the idea that in real life emotions impact the way people act and perform in every aspect of their lives.
“If I’m in a terrible emotional state I’m not going to perform as well,” Franklin said. “If I’m inspired and driven, I’m going to do my job better and it’s going to help.
“This dimension adds a layer of humanity to our game.”
While emotional gameplay was demonstrated during Electronic Arts’ press conference at Gamescom, the demo wasn’t a typical example of the way it works, Franklin said.
Hello readers! I (Djeranotjuh) went to GamesCom on the 22nd of August to check out The Sims 4! It’s my first time that I went to GamesCom and I really didn’t know what to expect. After a long trip, I finally arrived at GamesCom! My first reaction was “Wow, It’s huge and there are a lot of people!”

So as you may already know, you were able to check out the CAS part of The Sims 4 at GamesCom. So I did check out The Sims 4! The Create-A-Sim is really amazing. You can create the sim you want! You can change everything from head to shoe size. (Sorry to say this but there isn’t a height slider) You can change the way they walk, their voice and more. It’s really that AweSim! This is the Sim I created at GamesCom!
And the best part about GamesCom was meeting some YibSims! Like Curtis Paradis, TheSimSupply, SimGoodie, Simified, iPodZeeke, Chrillisims and Rachybop! I still can’t believe that I really met them in real life! (Thanks to iPodZeke for taking an amazing picture of me with SimGoodie -sarcasm-)
BlackEssence has posted a vlog on her YouTube channel about how people are reacting to The Sims 4. It’s definitely worth the watch, especially if you have mixed thoughts about the graphics (which I personally love).
We’ll be adding these to our Sims 4 Information Page once we update it, along with international retailers.
