The Sims 4 Is Coming, Internet Not Required
So, among other announcements made by EA yesterday, The Sims 4 managed to worm it’s way into the party and make itself known to the world. Yes, it’s another Sims title, what di you expect. The series has done well for EA in the past with a focus on more causal gamers, but that’s not what has caught everyone’s attention.
During the announcement, EA stated clearly that The Sims 4 would not require a constant Internet connection on order to play. In a statement made by EA, the publisher says that The Sims 4 is a celebration of the “heart and soul of the Sims themselves”.

“The Sims 4 encourages players to personalize their world with new and intuitive tools while offering them the ability to effortlessly share their creativity with friends and fans.”
If you have semi-decent memory you’ll recall that EA came under immense fire recent about always-online titles, with SimCity facing on of the worst launches to date. Because of the game’s requirement to connect to servers that were not ready on the day of launch, many players were unable to play their game for weeks after release day, forcing EA to do some major damage control and had out free games.
Seems like the publisher is keen on dodging that bullet the second time around. I mean hell, have you seen Sim’s players when they get angry? Od course not, they’re to busy playing The Sims anyway.
The Sims 4 will release for PC and Mac in 2014.
