Maxis announces The Sims 4 for 2014

Yes, it's playable offline

In a short, rather bland announcement, Maxis has announced its next project: The Sims 4. It's due out on Windows and Mac next year, and that's about all we know at this time. I mean, it is The Sims -- not like folks need much of anything to go on at this point. You will simulate your friends, let them die in cruel ways, and then Maxis will put out a bunch of expansions for years to come. We know the drill by now.

"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," reads a line from the announcement. To date, the franchise has sold more than 150 million copies worldwide.

Before you even finished reading the headline, you were probably wondering to yourself "Will this be another SimCity situation?" Terrible as it is that we have to now ask such questions immediately, it would seem that a constant Internet connection is not required. The Sims Hub received a longer version of the announcement which explicitly calls the game a "single-player offline experience." Lesson learned?
