Fash­ion­ably late

Three years on from its PC re­lease, The Sims 4 ar­rives on Xbox One

XBox: The Official Magazine (US) - - INSIDER -

‘Bet­ter late than never’, or so the say­ing goes, but just try telling that to the Sims we’ve left float­ing face down in their swim­ming pools. “Look guys, we’ve added in the steps again! It was all a big joke! You can come out now… guys?”

Still, we’re might­ily pleased to re­port that TheSims4 will be mak­ing its be­lated Xbox One de­but on Novem­ber 17. The se­ries, which last ap­peared on Xbox some seven years ago, had up un­til that point en­joyed a sur­pris­ingly con­sis­tent run on the plat­form—with the first three en­tries all ap­pear­ing on ei­ther the orig­i­nal Xbox or Xbox 360.

EA has an­nounced that the port, which it prom­ises will be as faith­ful to the PC ver­sion as pos­si­ble, will in­clude ‘many’—though po­ten­tially not all—of the sub­se­quent ex­pan­sion and con­tent packs. Just which ones will be in­cluded re­mains un­known, though early pre-or­der in­cen­tives sug­gest that the game’s bevy of smaller, largely aes­thetic ’Stuff Packs’ may not make the cut.

Speak­ing of which, fans who opt to pre-or­der the game will re­ceive the Per­fect Pa­tio Stuff pack—which in­cludes hot tubs, out­fits, and as­sorted bits of fur­ni­ture. Those who cough up for the Deluxe Party Edi­tion mean­while, will also re­ceive the Life Of The Party and Up All Night packs— in­clud­ing laser light shows and a very

Ban­joKa­zooie-es­que tiki bar. Deluxe play­ers will also re­ceive three days of early ac­cess to the game, as well as an ar­ray of ‘awe­some an­i­mal hats’—per­fect for any­one look­ing to re-en­act GTAV heists. In ad­di­tion, EA Ac­cess sub­scribers will also be able to play TheSims4 a whole seven days early. That’s a whole week of trap­ping your Sims inside clos­ets and for­bid­ding them to use the toi­let! Wait… that is the ob­jec­tive, isn’t it?
