Leaked Sims 5 screenshots show city streets and apartment buildings
Last month, EA Maxis showed off some early footage of Project Rene, the Sims 5 in development. They said they were showing the project early because they wanted to involve the community in its development.
Well, now it looks like someone has leaked footage from a recent Sims 5 playtest, which apparently shows an urban environment with several apartments to build inside.
You can watch the official reveal around the 26 minute mark in the video below:
The images are all shots of a screen playing the game, and they were posted to Reddit by a user who has since deleted their account.
The screenshots show several interiors, at least one of which features the same scene as the official Project Rene images, as well as previews of the UI and tutorial messages. The shots that show an urban environment with multi-story buildings, however, are the most exciting of the set, as this is the kind of setting The Sims previously reserved for expansions.
Some images have been leaked from Project Rene (The Sims 5) Playtesting.
Remember that the EA test server may have been breached by hackers (it is not confirmed yet).

In the comments to this Reddit thread, a deleted user – presumably the OP – said that the test “focused on new building and furniture features. It had 4 preset studios you can have fun in or an empty one for you to fit in. There were no sims in there at all. They also wrote that “there were no sims in this test, it was just construction”.
The official Project Rene announcement also focused on creative tools, including new features like the return of Create-A-Style, which was missing from The Sims 4, and greater flexibility in how you resize. , rotate and edit objects.
The Sims 5 still seems a long way off, but updates and expansions continue to be released for The Sims 4. We recently updated our list of the best Sims expansion packs.
