    The Sims 4 (2014)

    EA today have announced that they will release The Sims 4 for PC and Mac sometime next year.

    Not much detail that that, other than things are being "improved" and crucially it will be offline. Sounds like they learnt from the mistakes of SimCity 5.

    Stay tuned.

    Offline? Lucky Sims players. I have yet to buy Sim City 5 because of the glitches and always online stuff. Hopefully EA has finally learned something and will start becoming more consumer friendly.

    I've since heard that it will have both offline and online modes. Best of both worlds I guess.

    Although I'm not sure this has been fully confirmed.

    Ive been playing Sim City 5 for a while now, all the issues are non-exsistant and game is actually fun in sandbox mode!

    Re: The Sims 4 (2014)

    I'm hoping to hear they've fixed the broken routing for the sims within the game - the FIFO system for assigning housing and jobs rather than lifetime (or even - gasp - remotely realistic times spent at a given job or housing situation based on comparative studies in real world economics) is just broken to me. You're not simulating a city when you don't have that kind of pathfinding - you're gaming a system that may well be broken.
    There's nothing like being in heavy rehearsal for a new season to remind you that this isn't just a hobby.

    The Sims 3 team are doing a live broadcast 10am PST (aka right now) which may yield some details about TS4. Stay tuned.

    The Sims Live Broadcast - June 18 - YouTube!

    Re: The Sims 4 (2014)

    Could be interesting. I wonder what they are going to offer that merits a whole new game set?
