The lights are on
A new trailer for The Sims 4 shows us more about the new ways to create Sims that look and act how you want them to. In the past, players had to traverse a number of menus to tweak the looks of their digital playmates. Now, everything is handled in one place.
Hovering over different facial features shows what can be manipulated. By grabbing and moving the mouse, you’ll be able to more easily adjust how the Sims look.
Additionally, giving them personality traits and aspirations will define how they react in social situations. The trailer hints at new build tools for homes, but those will be revealed later.
The Sims 4 is coming to PC in fall 2014 (bumped out of the spring slot by Titanfall, according to EA). For more, check out our preview from Gamescom.

Cool, mind races to think of what the community will make with this.
Wow, getting a lot of mileage out of this old beater.
Nope not buying it. The Sims games are way too addicting and I end up wasting a ton of money on them every time. We'll you won't be getting my money this time EA! But seriously, those games are addicting and for that reason I think I'll pass on The Sims 4.
I used to love Sims, until one day I was playing and went full meta.
I made a character based on myself and put him in college top study precisely what I study. So at one point I was watching him playing on the computer while avoiding to study and it was extremely awkward, because I was doing the exact same thing. Needless to say I never played again.
I would like to play Sims 4 but honestly, my problem with it is that you buy the base game and it lacks a lot of stuff that was integrated to the earlier installment via Expansion Packs. And then if you want that stuff you have to pay for the same Expansion, again.
I wonder if this level of detail is what caused it to get that 18+ rating overseas? lol
Can this come out nowwwww
I really wish they'd abandon the cartoon look of this series.
can't wait to see more games that have the whole head and body customization implement this so it's much easier to make a character, I hate using a bunch of sliders
Maybe they could release some trailers to show how it will work on consoles?
Mila Kunis 1:22ish lol
Are piercings back? (work comp keeps crashing the video player so I didn't get to finish it lol)
I dont wanna wait, for a new sims to be over
Hype! Too bad my PC can't handle it.
