The Sims 4 is Coming to Consoles

Jul 27, 2017

By: Max Cannon

Patient console gamers have reason to celebrate, The Sims 4 will be making its way to console on November 17th, 2017. Rumors were circulating around of an Xbox One version of the game coming out this year, but nothing about the possible PlayStation 4 version until now. Sadly at the moment there wasn't anything to hear about a Nintendo Switch version.

Here's what the team over at EA had to say about the new game, including Lyndsay Pearson who we interviewed earlier when the game was only on PC.

“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,” said Executive Producer, Lyndsay Pearson. “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.”

"As with The Sims 4 on PC, console players can experience and test life’s limits in a world where there are no rules. Fans will have the power to create unique Sims, customizing everything from their hair color and style to their fashion choices and life aspirations. With the room-based Build Mode, players can design and pick décor, effortlessly building their dream home. In the mood to explore? Sims can check out the various neighborhoods and dynamic venues the world offers.

The Sims 4 on console gives players the unique gameplay the PC base game has to offer, plus many of the additional content updates added to The Sims 4 post-launch. After the console game launches, fans can also look forward to periodic game updates and extra content releases.

From Maxis and the talented team at Blind Squirrel Games, The Sims 4 will be available worldwide on November 17, 2017 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Pre-order The Sims 4 on console* now and receive The Sims 4 Perfect Patio Stuff pack, featuring hot tubs and tons of bonus décor for your outdoor oasis. Players who can’t wait to get The Sims party started can pre-order The Sims 4 Deluxe Party Edition today and receive the full game three days early on November 14th. The Deluxe Party Edition includes special content like a Flaming Tiki Bar, outrageous costumes, silly animal hats and more, plus The Sims 4 Perfect Patio Stuff featuring hot tubs.
