As the gaming world is still enjoying The Sims 4, a sequel for the life-simulation game is on its way to the market. No disrespect for The Sims 4, as it’s a compelling and exciting game where the player gets to do pretty much everything he wants. The developers had even updated it with expansion packs in the last several months, as we can mention Discover University, Cats & Dogs, and so on.
But our focus is now on The Sims 5, as it will arrive by 2022. Although it seems like an eternity until then, especially if you’re a fan of the series, we already know plenty of stuff that the sequel for The Sims 4 will have to offer for gamers.
The Sims 5: Platforms and Multiplayer Features Expected by the Fans
Fans had been talking about online speculation which claims that The Sims 5 will be featuring a multiplayer mode that it’s very similar to the one of GTA 5. This is huge news, considering how insanely successful GTA Online is. There’s even some speculation that Rockstar won’t bring up the long-awaited GTA 6 anymore, as it prefers to instead regularly update its online mode for GTA 5.
But the good news is not over yet regarding The Sims 5. EA CEO Andrew Wilson spoke about the platform available for the upcoming game, saying about the developer Maxis that it “…continues to think about The Sims for a new generation across platforms and a cloud-enabled world.”.
This clearly suggests that The Sims 5 will also be available for the upcoming next-generation consoles of Sony and Microsoft: PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, respectively. And it’s something totally reasonable and predicted by the fans. But the other part of the sentence hints to the availability for the cloud gaming services.
This is a relatively new technology that prevents the gamers from worrying about not having the right configuration on their PCs before hopping into a game. With cloud gaming services like GeForce Now or Google Stadia, gamers have the chance to enjoy their favorite titles on PCs that don’t have a powerful video card mounted.
As The Sims 5 is approaching, the world of the life-simulation games should become more impressive than ever once the game arrives.
