A new trailer has popped up for The Sims 4, focusing on the absurdly powerful Create-A-Sim tool.
The big thing with this iteration of Create-A-Sim is that you won’t have to go through a million menus to fine-tune your Sims: instead, you just click and drag. Broader shoulders? A longer nose? A bigger bum? Click and drag. Which, yes, does mean you’ll be clicking and pulling on bottoms. There’s also been a load more work done on personality traits, aspirations, bonus perks, and the like. If you’ve ever enjoyed a The Sims game, this vid of The Sims 4 is worth a look.
There are also a pair of new screenshots you can see above and below, which show off some of the Sims you’ll be able to create and the varying different styles you’ll be able to give them.
Last I heard, The Sims 4 was due out later this year. I’m assuming we’ll be hearing more in the coming weeks.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, getting very angry at people in Dota 2, or playing basically anything that’s not a hardcore simulation or sports game. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
