The Sims 4 is a 2014 life simulation video game developed by the Redwood Shores studio of Maxis and published by Electronic Arts. It is the fourth major title in The Sims series and was originally announced on May 6, 2013, and was released in North America on September 2, 2014 for Microsoft Windows. A Mac compatible version of the game was released on February 17, 2015. The Sims 4 is the first PC game to top all-format charts in two years. The game has received mixed reviews since its release, with the majority of criticism directed towards its lack of content.
Eight expansion packs have been released. The most recent is Discover University, which was released on November 15, 2019. There have also been several "stuff packs" and "game packs" released, as well as free updates that include major changes such as the addition of a toddler life stage.
If there's one game that gets some of the biggest and most consistent content expansions, it's The Sims 4. EA's enduring life simulator continues to roll on, and the latest addition - Island Living - is one of the biggest yet, with some important new changes to how you create your Sims. Careers include working as a conservationist, saving lives as a lifeguard, filling your nets as a fisherman and exploring beneath the waves as a deep sea diver. There are lots of cultural activities to take part in, and a ton of tropical-themed items to dress your Sims up in. The Sims game features the series' first transgender preset character, with the option to customise your Sims with any physical trait, regardless of gender.
It is definitely worth playing.
