The Sims 4 is coming to Xbox One
The life-management simulator will woohoo its way to the console this November.
Despite their PC heritage, the Sims games have appeared on a surprisingly large number of consoles and mobile platforms, starting with The Sims on PS2 way back in 2003. Admittedly, these ports have been kind of hit-and-miss, but they've typically done a decent job of translating the series' people-managing antics to platforms that lack a mouse and keyboard. The only disappointment has been how long console players have had to wait for the games to come to their system of choice. The last console release was The Sims 3: Pets on Xbox 360 and PS3 back in 2011.
Fortunately, that's about to change. Thanks to the eagle-eyed folks over at TrueAchievements, we now know that The Sims 4 will be making its way to Xbox One on 17 November. According to the game's Microsoft Store product page, the Xbox One version will feature all the functionality of the PC game, with Create-A-Sim, Build Mode and the full skill and goals system all making the transition to the console intact.
You can take a peek at The Sims 4 Xbox One product page for yourself here, but there's no price attached to the game as yet. There's also a Deluxe Party Edition that comes with the Perfect Patio Stuff expansion pack and gets you early access to the game on 14 November.
We'll keep you posted as more information becomes available.
