The latest installment of the sim-snooping series tasks you with guiding multiple generations through virtual life.

Today EA and Maxis announced a new installment of its vaunted Sims series, appropriately named The Sims Mobile. The iOS and Android title features all the careers, activities, and home design fans have come to expect from the series, with an added emphasis on guiding their sims through multiple generations, similar to The Sims 4's legacy challenge. Maxis says players' sims can interact with the virtual inhabitants of their real-life friends as well. The launch trailer gives a good look at some of the choices and gameplay, as well as what players can expect from the visuals.

EA is launching The Sims Mobile today in Brazil, with a worldwide launch "coming soon." The title will be free to download.

 

Our Take
The trailer shows a promising amount of features and customization, but as with all mobile titles, we'll have to wait and see how the game's free-to-play monetization is implemented before deciding if it's worth playing. Also, why the heck is "misdiagnose" an option? What kind of doctor is that?!
