The Sims series is a successful video game series, and the high level of enthusiasm and awareness regarding the fifth installment confirms it very well. Even though it was released several years ago, The Sims 4 still receives some compelling updates so that it will become much more interesting to play by the fans. The last update was “Tiny Living” received this January, a patch that allows players to build houses and do other exciting stuff.
But we have to focus our attention on the awaited The Sims 5 since we know for sure that the life simulation game is under development. The EA boss Andrew Wilson is hinting to us how The Sims 5 will be and it sounds almost too good to be true:
Cloud gaming support
Nobody uses CDs and DVDs anymore these days. The cloud technology is way too comfortable. Also, your game progress data can also be stored automatically on a cloud, and that’s exactly what the developers of The Sims 5 are planning for their game.
PS5 and Xbox Series X support
Santa Claus will bring in 2020 the next-generation consoles for those kids who had been behaving well. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will land to the stores during Holiday this year, and The Sims 5 will be ready and adapted for them. The two consoles will be featuring specs highly superior to their predecessors PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, respectively.
The game will be… social
The Sims 5 will also have an online mode, so that you will have the opportunity to compete with your friends and family to see who is better in the game. Nonetheless, the good news doesn’t stop here: The Sims 5 gives the online players a chance for social media interactions, so they can communicate easily while playing.
Obviously, the most reasonable question now is, “when will The Sims 5 be launched?”. The EA CEO didn’t say anything regarding a release date, but fans have reasons to hope that EA will unveil the mystery during the EA Play 2020, which will take place this year in June.
