The Sims 4 will hit PC & MAC in 2014

The Sims 4 has been officially announced by EA and will release in 2014. But you probably already guessed that with the domain registrations over the weekend.

More details are expected throughout the day, but for now, here’s the official blurb

 

The Sims franchise is fueled by the passion and creativity of its millions of fans around the world. Their continued devotion to the franchise ignites the fire of creativity of the team at The Sims Studio, driving them to continually improve and innovate on one of the world’s most successful simulation game that has sold more than 150 million copies worldwide.

Elaborating on the release, The Sims Hub also added an addition to the blurb, indicating that The Sims 4 will not required an always-on connection to play the single-player portion of the game, something The Sims 3 was widely criticized for.

The Sims 4 celebrates the heart and soul of the Sims themselves, giving players a deeper connection with the most expressive, surprising and charming Sims ever in this single-player offline experience. The Sims 4 encourages players to personalize their world with new and intuitive tools while offering them the ability to effortlessly share their creativity with friends and fans.

When we get more details, we’ll share them with you.
