Four years after release on the PC, The Sims 4 is finally available on home consoles for all, after having previously been available for a trial through EA Access. Whilst you can read our initial impressions from the first ten hours of the game, should you be one who has been holding out for a console release, and the chance to play God, then that time has come!
For those living under a rock for the best part of 20 years, The Sims is a life-simulator where you can create a person, or family, and thrust them into a vibrant and lively neighbourhood where they can focus on their career to earn their millions, or be the greatest party animal in town. These are just a couple of options but really, the only limit is your imagination. You can even lock your Sims away in a small room with flammable objects and an open fire if you are that way inclined!
The Sims 4 is available in two versions: The Standard Edition is available from Friday 17th November priced at £44.99 (or £40.49 for EA Access members) and the Deluxe Party Edition is available today priced at £54.99 (or £49.49 for EA Access members).
Both these versions include the Perfect Patio Stuff DLC which includes hottubs, poolside furniture and a range of new outfits.
However, the Deluxe Party Edition also includes Awesome Animal Hats, Life of the Party and Up All Night DLC. It’s all about being up all night at a party full of animals!
There are also further packs with The Sims 4 Bundle coming in at £44.99 (£40.49 EA Access) which contains City Living (£34.99 individual purchase), Vampires (£19.99), Vintage Glamour Stuff (£9.99).
The Sims 4 offers hundreds of hours of gameplay as you interact with all manner of people in the world so expect plenty more DLC offerings to expand the game! For now though, make your way to the Microsoft Store and hit the party scene.
