Will The Sims 5 have mods?

The Sims 4 is a hugely popular game, but many of its biggest fans rely on mods to change how the game works and add new entertainment possibilities. They’re popular to the point that players flock to new ones every time an expansion pack is released. The question remains, will The Sims 5 have mods once they inevitably release?

Announcement The Sims 5

Of course, we have to talk about the obvious thing first – The Sims 5 has yet to be officially announced. EA has talked about “the future of The Sims” in a way that suggests it’s in the works, but we haven’t seen or heard anything official.

That being said, we’re sure it will eventually arrive, we just don’t know when, so we’re wondering what will be included once it does.

Will The Sims 5 have mods?

While they will never come from EA or Maxis directly, mods are fairly certain to make it into The Sims 5 one way or another.

They probably won’t be widely available for a few weeks or months after the games release, but they will eventually arrive and will likely be activated the same way.

What will be interesting is whether old mods will be transferable quickly, allowing Sims 5 players to bring back their favorite mods as soon as possible.

There is a group of very popular mods, which allow you to change relationships and career paths, so it would be great if they were available early. That being said, any new feature can render some of the popular mods obsolete.

Another interesting consideration is that some entirely new mod ideas might pop up, influenced by all the new features introduced by The Sims 5.

Graphical changes and more depth to your sims’ lives could completely change the mod landscape, and that will be interesting to see.

As soon as we know more about The Sims 5 and the mods that follow, we’ll let you know here.
