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.

Sims is one of the world’s most successful simulation game and I’m fan of Sims series,playing it since first version which was released in 2000. I liked the original Sims, Sims 2 and still playing Sims 3, the birds view in Sims 3 is awesome.  Hope playing Sims 4 will be awesome too with updated technology and happy that it doesn’t require a persistent online connection.

“Hi everybody. My name’s Nicole. I am so excited to talk to you guys today, and to welcome each of you into our inner circle here at Maxis, because you guys are our VIPs. You are the ones who made this The Sims 3 such a wonderful demonstration of player-driven creativity, and so I’m here to give you big news today.

And like we mentioned, we’ve seen speculation on the internet over the weekend and there’s tons of theories about what we’re announcing today, but you are the first people to hear the news. Today, in just under three hours, we are formally announcing that we’re developing “The Sims 4.”

So, the Sims is fueled by the passion and creativity of our millions of fans around the world, and we make The Sims because of you guys. It’s your continued devotion to The Sims that inspires us every day and gets us here, on the team at The Sims Studio, creative.

We’re working hard to make The Sims 4 the best Sims game yet, and we’re looking to bring the biggest critical component to the dev process, which is you. So we’re relying on your passion and your expertise to help us make The Sims 4 even better. And, it’s to bring each of you into the mix early and often, so you have insider access to the game that we’re making.

And I want to make it clear right now that with The Sims, it’s fans first, all the way. In fact, we have not yet spoken to the press. You are the first people in the entire world to find out more about the team making The Sims 4, as well as our vision for the game.

So first of all, I want to tell you about the team behind the scene. We have over 100 people working on The Sims 4, and many of them are the names that you recognize from The Sims 3. Some of them are even members that extend all the way back to the first Sims.

One of our producers is Lindsay Pearson, and she’s been with The Sims Studio for ten years now. She’s worked on a variety of The Sims projects from the original Sims, to The Sims 2, and The Sims 3, and Lindsay’s been a key driver behind not only The Sims base game, but subsequent expansion and stuff packs as well. And we just feel so lucky to have her on this team.

Our audio maestro is Robbie Crocker, and I hope you all know his name, because he’s been with The Sims since the very beginning. Robbie was one of the original creators of “Simlish,” which I think is the coolest thing ever. He is just such a cool guy. And it’s Robbie more than anyone else, who has helped shaped the sound of our in-game language and music, and I can’t wait to hear what new sounds he’s going to be making for The Sims 4.

I could throw a ton of names at you guys, Kevin Hogan, Kevin Gibson, Josh Hendron, Samantha Mizelli, Grant Vo{inaudible}, and these are some of the names you already know and love, and these are some of the people you’ll be meeting and talking to, in the months to come.

As for me, I’ve been a huge fan of The Sims since the first game, and personally I’ve jumped at the opportunity to work on one of my dream projects. I love games, I’ve been in gaming forever, and I’m so excited to be here to bring our team’s vision to life for The Sims 4. I’m impressed daily by the depth and knowledge of the studio team members, and I’m very much looking forward to the day where I can introduce all of you to some more of them.

So, why now? Well for The Sims 4, we took a look at the history of the series, and we pinpointed what we believe is the core of the experience. When the original came out in 2000 it was like nothing before it, it was just fascinating look into the world of The Sims, those little people that we’ve come to love so much, and then three years later came The Sims 2, and it introduced wonderful concepts like generational gameplay, a big fan favorite, and of course, little people in 3D.

Then The Sims 3 came out in 2009, and with the introduction of traits we added even more personality to those little people. So at the very center of every game are “the sims.” And that’s what our fans love, and we know that because you tell us that, every day. So we’re listening to our fans like you, and we’re going back to our roots—”the sims” themselves. 

We felt it was important to unlock new ways for your sims to interact with one another, so we’re focusing on the complexity of sim-to-sim interactions, and the way your sims behave. New breakthroughs in technology are letting us give you the coolest sims ever. And today we’re giving you an exclusive image that will provide some clues into what’s new and exciting about The Sims 4.

We’re not quite ready to spoil it for you yet, but when we are I promise it will all make sense.

We’re also making some big improvements to CAS [Create-a-sim] and Build / Buy [modes], and I think you’ll love the changes that we’ve made to each of our tools. We couldn’t be {inaudible} about the news, and what all our fans around the world have to say, because you know this studio loves reading your articles, and we’ve spent tons of our lunchtimes on your sites, and we’re probably some of your biggest fans.

So I want to tell you one more thing, you are the influencers who will help shape our game. You guys are the ones we will be reaching out to on a regular basis. And we want your input. And, I have to say we’re so impressed by the amount of creativity throughout all that you’re doing out there. {inaudible}, your videos are amazing.
