Without a doubt, this should be the most highlighted question among fans. First of all, the game will be available for two completely new platforms: Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

A vast world with no loading screens will represent another cool aspect in The Sims 5. Of course, nobody likes loading screens between scenes. Therefore, why not put to the users’ disposal a big GTA-style map where the player is free to go shopping, go to work, go to parties, or where ever he wants? This is exactly what the developers have in mind.

Only time will tell how many new and exciting stuff The Sims 5 will bring for gamers. But we have plenty of reasons to expect another great success for the gaming world. What about you, what else would you like to see in The Sims 5?




  1. If the playstation 5 comes out feb of 2020, aka 4 months from now, why would EA release sims 5 in 2021 for playstation 4 and xbox one? These two consoles will be completely outdated by 2021. Its also probably reason for the sims 5’s 2021 release date rumors… it gives EA 1 year of development to properly release a sims title on the new consoles.
