The Sims is one of the popular life simulation-based game series, which is published by Electronic Arts and developed by Redwood Shores studio of Maxis. The Sims was launched back in 2000 in February and after that EA has released three more sequels of the Sims. The latest title in the franchise is the Sims 4, which was launched in 2014.
The creators release new updates in the game regularly for the expansion of the game. Sims 4 was released globally in 2014, and since then, the game has been getting new updates bringing in new stories and features. The recent significant update for Sims 4 was released in November 2019, which brought Live Lavishly Bundle.
Well, it’s been more than five years since the Sims 4 was announced and now fans are waiting for the arrival of the Sims 5. Stay tuned, if you are also excited about the upcoming Sims 5 and want to know more about it. As here, we will be discussing the release date and expected features of Sims 5.
The Sims 5 Release Date –
Before we start, let us make it clear that the official release date of the Sims 5 has not been announced by EA yet. Here, we will be mentioning the expected arrival date of the game based on several reports. Some theories suggest that EA will release the new title in early 2021, whereas, some reports say that EA will release the game at the end of the year 2020.
Well, the recent update for Sims 4 rolled out in November 2019, and we are expecting one more major update for the game. And after that, EA will stop expanding the Sims 4 world, and we may see the new Sims title after that.
The Sims 5 New Features –
We are also expecting a lot more with the Sims 5. First of all, the support for virtual reality devices like Oculus, other devices by the OEMs like HTC. For now, the VR support of the Sims 4 is limited. Let’s see if EA will be expanding the VR version of the popular simulation series.
Other than this, the feature that fans have been asking since the release of Sims 4 is the open-world exploration. Sims 3 supported the open-world environment, and fans really enjoyed the real-life based simulation. But, the exploration of the environment was limited in Sims 4. We are expecting EA to improve the open-world exploration in the upcoming Sims 5.
Well, there are a lot of other things that we are expecting the release of Sims 5. Like more transportation systems in the game. This is one of the things that the Sims community asked for in Sims 4. Though several Sims 4 mods manage to bring back more options. But, we are expecting this feature out-of-the-box.
This is all about the release date and expected features of The Sims 5. What are you expecting with the Sims 5? Let us know in the comments section below.
