‘The Sims’ are getting in touch with their feelings. The fourth edition of Maxis’ successful life-simulating game will include more emotional versions of the virtual people whose lives and homes players can maneuver.
Lyndsay Pearson, The Sims 4 producer said that the developers have focused on crafting more believable Sims who can perform multiple actions for example both walking and talking simultaneously.
Even though the Sims have always been an emotional collection, but they’ll be guided by their moods even more in The Sims 4, which is set for release next year for PC. Pearson very keenly said that “The key to The Sims 4 emotions is that there isn’t anything particularly better or worse.
The latest version will also make it easier for players to build homes for their Sims by picking pre-designed rooms and plumping them together to create a house. The dwelling can then be filled with furniture and other items that inspire different emotions in the Sims.
The sequel includes 18 touch points on the Sims’ bodies, which can be molded to create custom faces and physiques. The developers of Sims have also included new locales for the virtual people to “WooHoo,” the franchise’s cheeky term for sexual intercourse.
Producer of the Sims 4 refused to comment on what the developers learned from the poor launch of SimCity, which went on to sell 2 million copies, according to EA.
Pearson revealed that in The Sims 4 players will still be able to exchange virtual creations much the same way they did in previous editions of The Sims be an offline single-player experience, but it would be an offline single player experience.
The Sims 4 is scheduled to be released on early 2014. No fixed date yet to be announced.
