The Sims 4 originally released in 2014 on PC, the natural home of the series. As is custom for The Sims games, it was endowed with several expansion packs like Vampires and City Living, but no hints at a console release ever came, until today.
TrueAchievements first pointed out The Sims 4‘s listing on the Microsoft website. No price point has been revealed, but according to the description, anyone who pre-orders the game will also receive The Sims 4 Perfect Patio Stuff—a bonus slew of content that includes more fashion, hot tubs and décor. Another listing for The Sims 4 Deluxe Party Edition is live and gives super keen players three days worth of early access to the game, which also comes with Up All Night digital content, Life of the Party digital content, and Awesome Animal Hats digital content.
The Sims 4 will release on Xbox One on November 17. It’s currently unknown whether Maxis and Electronic Arts will bring it to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
Update: Senior Producer of The Sims 4 Michael Duke has confirmed on PlayStation Blog that the game is also headed to PlayStation 4.
