The Sims 4 Gallery lets you share characters and worlds with other players
During its Gamescom conference, EA took the stage to play a live demo of The Sims 4. We’ve got all the new details here.
It all started with the creator of Sim, the guys on stage creating an incredibly flattering version of EA COO Peter Moore to show off the range of face and body types available. They then showed traits, such as athletic or creative, as well as details such as a “walking style”.
They then switched to Build Mode, showing how a Sim’s home is built. Everything can be moved, including the whole house, a new feature in The Sims 4.
Once the house was set up, they took care of the individual rooms. Players can browse other players’ creations in the gallery and can integrate them directly into their own game. You can even bring in an entire house made by another player.
On stage, they showed a football stadium-style house brought from the library, then a maze that quickly killed one of the Sims inside.
Players can go fishing in their neighborhood, assemble new plants, or go out and meet other Sims to socialize. How your Sim will socialize depends on the traits selected during the character creation process. On stage, they showed a Sim called Pancake Bob who had the “dark” trait, who looked miserable despite eating a huge plate of pancakes. He was married to Eliza, a much more expensive Sim. Needless to say, they didn’t get along.
So Peter Moore’s Sim was sent to cheer Pancake Bob up. Bob was able to complain about his issues, while Peter offered hugs which still didn’t get the job done. It wasn’t until Peter started dancing that Bob began to cheer up, joining in the fun.
Things then got a little weird. The demo showed off a rare type of plant that players can craft. It was called a cow, and was a kind of Venus flytrap with an udder that used a piece of cake to lure Peter Sim into its mouth.
EA was keen to show the variety of gameplay options available in The Sims 4 and how that can be shared with other players.
Sim creator demo is available now onlineand any created Sim will be able to access your game directly when The Sims 4 launches on September 2 on PC.
