The Sims 5 has been leaked

On October 25, EA (Electronic Arts) announced that they were starting to play The Sims 5 (otherwise known as Project Rene). Not even a week later and now we receive reports that the game has been hacked and leaked.

How The Sims 5 Was Hacked

Trusted EA testers were welcomed on board to play through the game. This was so they could report any technical glitches, glitches, and control errors. The testers were encouraged to invite 3 friends to play the game as well. That’s probably where they went wrong.

Clearly, The Sims 5 has now made its way to the computer screens of unauthorized users. Somewhere on the Internet it has become an easily accessible program. You don’t need to go through EA or any other authority – you can just download the game. This is quite possibly the worst case scenario for a game that is still in its early development stages.

The Sims 5 – Rene Project

To make matters worse, the hacker even described the process of taking The Sims 5 as “really easy”. Apparently, the developers didn’t encrypt the game. And it runs on Unreal Engine – which makes bypassing security a very simple process. Especially for a hacker, who already has a lot of skill in navigating security codes in the first place.

Sources claim that the hackers were able to generate “access tokens” using a game tester devuno token (this allows them to access the game). These generated tokens will allow anyone to access The Sims 5 without needing any form of online access or approval from EA. This could open up the possibility of somebody get your hands on those access tokens, putting the game in a “free-for-all” position.

So far the reviews are good

Although the access codes have not yet been (illegally) made public, the hackers have already shared the gameplay on Peer 2 Peer servers. On the bright side, everyone who’s played The Sims 5 reports that it’s a lot of fun! An anonymous tester told Insider Gaming that everyone in the playtest discord loved it. So, despite the malicious act of hacking and hacking, we now know that gaming is something to look forward to.

The Sims 5 – or Project René, does not yet have a specific release date. EA has also not made an official report on the unfortunate hacking incident. We don’t know for sure if they will talk about it. Maybe they want to deal with this quietly so they can focus on developing the game.

We can only hope that EA and The Sims team can get things under control soon!

It’s the perfect opportunity to explore the ever-changing world of The Sims before The Sims 5 arrives. You can start a family, build a house, and start a career. Ironically, you even have the option of becoming a hacker in The Sims 4. Although we highly recommend keeping your hacker fantasies confined to a life simulation game.
