The Sims 4 Headed to Xbox One, Playstation 4

July 26, 2017 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Since 2014, there has been one singular joy for gamers that has been denied owners of video game consoles. That sublime experience is, of course, tormenting Sims in The Sims 4. The game released for PC and Mac in September of 2014 but has yet to be made available for consoles, but EA is about to change all that. The company announced on Wednesday that The Sims 4 will be released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on November 17th. You can see a trailer for the platform release below.

“The addition of a console-version of The Sims 4 has been long-awaited by fans and newcomers alike, and we at Maxis are beyond excited to bring The Sims to new platforms,” Executive Producer Lyndsay Pearson said. “The game delivers a beautiful The Sims experience on console and comes packed with tons of the fan-favorite content, so players can look forward to the unique gameplay, self-expression, and fun that have come to be tentpoles of The Sims brand. The possibilities to play with life are as endless as the players’ creativity.”

Console players, like PC and Mac players, will be able to create unique Sims, with the ability to change hair color, facial features and more. In Build Mode, you can create your own house with specific decor, and you can interact with other players. You’ll be able to do all the things that the original players could with The Sims 4, and get many of the additional content updates. Players can reportedly expect periodic game updates and extra content releases.

Of course, we all know that what console players are really looking forward to is building a home with nothing but fire hazards, inviting poor unsuspecting Sims inside and then deleting the door to watch panic and carnage unfold. No judgment here.

If you pre-order The Sims 4 on console now you will get The Sims 4 Perfect Patio Stuff pack, which has hot tubs and bonus outdoor decor. You can also pre-order The Sims 4 Deluxe Party Editon and get the full game three days early on November 14th. It includes the Flaming Tiki Bar, costumes and more, as well as the Perfect Patio Stuff pack.
