The Sims 4 Brings Emotional Sims, Won’t Require An Online Connection & Isn’t Coming To Consoles

EA has announced The Sims 4 at Gamescom 2013. On the immediate surface, not a lot has changed from previous itterations, however, we’re told Sims are now more intelligent, with a new tuned AI allowing them to express themselves, and their emotions.

Alongside the footage from the GamesCom stage, Sims 4 Producer Grant Rodiek has confirmed that the newly revealed title will not feature “always-on” style DRM, as was the case with EA’s recent SimCity game. Rodiek states Sims 4 is “an offline, client-based game.”

He also went on to mention the game’s platforms, saying that, for now at least, the game is PC and Mac only, with home consoles not currently a priority for the development team at Maxis.

The Sims 4 is due out some time next year.
