GirlGamersUK: Sims 4 Get to Work Preview

GirlGamersUK have shared their hands-on preview of The Sims 4 Get to Work, following their visit to EA UK on the 13th March :)

To begin with, we opted to check out the detective career and assert our authority over any nearby Sims. As a detective, your role is to investigate crime scenes, dust for fingerprints, find clues and solve crimes.

It’s interesting seeing how other people play, because Simmers really make their game their own.

Maxis have released a fun trailer to promote the retail features in The Sims 4 Get to Work. It’s a really cute and fun trailer that will remind you a bit of a Disney film.

But remember, mannequins do not actually sing in-game (best disclaimer ever).
