The first two lists with what we might see in Sims 5 (Part I and Part II) have brought us back many delightful memories and made us want to play Sims even more than before. Some of the features we want to see can already be found in mods for the Sims 4 – check out our lists of Top Sims 4 Mods below.
But let’s go ahead and say want we won’t see in Sims 5 and what we don’t really want to be introduced. First of all, there are some important facts to know about the Sims 5 like release dates, the platform, the online mode and so on – the list is very long!
Sims 5 Release Date
Each Sims game was released every five years – the first one in 2000, the Sims 2 in 2004, the Sims 3 in 2009 and the Sims 4 in 2014. Will The Sims 5 be released this year? This year, the developers said they wanted to add more content for the Sims 4, so the earliest date of release would be in 2020.
We think EA will continue to deliver the Sims games on PC and not abandon the players for other platforms, plus EA usually publishes games for multiple consoles.
What we have all loved about Sims was the single-player experience. Will the Sims 5 be an online game? We doubt it unless it adds a mode for some kind of multiplayer interaction.
The Sims 5 on Mobile?
Although EA has released a Sims game on mobiles, gamers won’t be able to play the game on their phones, but maybe EA will offer exclusive items if you sync the accounts.
As all Sims games, the base game is released, and then it gets quality-of-life updates or overhauls which is usually free.
It also gets expansion packs which add new experiences to the base game and item packs that include more content – items, characters, and actions. These item packs ‘Stuff’ packs are less important than the expansion packs.
What we hope EA won’t release is too many microtransactions for overpowered items or cosmetics.
Will The Sims 5 come with a VR experience? Will your Sim be able to visit other Sims in an online world? As we said, the list is long, so we’ll soon be back with The Sims 5: What We Won’t See In the Next Sims Game And Why – Part II and Part III.
