Electronic Arts has given the heads up that The Sims 4will be out in fall 2014. Good to know. I always like it when a full numbered Sims is about to release because then I can concentrate on it and not feel like I'm missing out once the flood of expansions begins to rush out.
Most notably after the SimCity launch debacle, The Sims 4 will not require a persistent online connection, thank goodness. It's also worth pointing out that content from the last game can't be transferred over -- The Sims Studio is using "entirely new technology" that's incompatible.
I love that one of the listed features is "For the first time, Sims feel and express emotions." Maybe now I'll have to think twice about locking them in a windowless box. Maybe.
