After little word on the game’s release for the past 3 years, The Sims 4 is now getting a confirmed release on the Xbox One and on PS4. News of an Xbox version leaked last Tuesday, when a product page on the Microsoft Store accidentally posted the release date ahead of an official announcement.
The Sims 4 will be coming to Microsoft and Sony on November 17. According to EA, the console version will include the base game, and “many” of the add-ons that came with the game on PC. EA also says that fans can expect “periodic game updates and extra content releases.”
Anyone who preorders the game will receive the Perfect Patio Stuff pack, and players who preorder the Deluxe Party Edition will get “special content like a Flaming Tiki Bar, outrageous costumes, silly animal hats, and more”, and early access to the game. Xbox One users can also play the game a week early for no extra charge.
So far, The Sims 4 players have been mixed on the game’s content, which some say is a step back from content provided in The Sims 3. The biggest addition in The Sims 4 is the game’s varied Create-A-Sim options, and the streamlined options and interface for building homes.
