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.
