The Sims 4 officially announced for Xbox One, PS4

Following yesterday’s premature announcement, EA has officially confirmed that The Sims 4 will release for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on November 17th. The console version looks to offer all the same features as the PC/Mac version.

From the official press release:

“From creating unique Sims and building amazing homes to developing Sim’s relationships and pursuing careers, The Sims 4 delivers the same emotional connection our PC players cherish to a new wave of console players. Fans will enjoy being empowered to create and control people in a vibrant virtual world as they experience life’s unpredictable, entertaining moments along the way.

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.”

In addition to the base game, the console version will include many of the additional content updates that PC players had to wait months for, like pools. After The Sims 4 launches on consoles, it will be supported with periodic updates and extra content releases, though it’s unclear if these will arrive at the same pace or at the same time as the PC counterpart.

The Sims 4 will be available worldwide on November 17 for Xbox One and PS4. I fyou pre-order on console now, you’ll receive the Perfect Patio Stuff pack, featuring hot tubs and bonus décor for your outdoor oasis.
