Early this year, Xbox One and PS4 enthusiasts let out a cheer when EA announced that The Sims 4 will make it to the consoles. Just a few weeks ago though, we received news that the release date of The Sims 4 for Xbox One and PS4 version had been pushed back due to some technical difficulties and won’t see the light of day until 2017 or late this 2016. Developers are said to be having a hard time putting the game over to console, and that EA is planning to launch the game with all the DLCs and updates – requiring more time to get things ready and done.
Sims fans around the world willingly extend their patience, but our recent snooping around web suggests that they may need to extend it a mile farther. We haven’t heard any update about the release date yet from EA, and all the news so far are nothing but a rehash of what we already know.
Well, anyway, there’s no reason Simmers shouldn’t stay positive while enduring the wait because along with The Sims 4’s release for Xbox One and PS4, rumors has it that EA will provide a special feature for the upcoming title. Consider it a consolation prize, but the game’s console version is said to include a Pet Expansion. This special feature will allow users to adopt pets or create their own pets. The pets will be created through the “Create A Sim” feature, which includes nifty tools that will allow users to change their pets characteristics and personality.
Aside from the Pet Expansion, other expansions of The Sims 4 will probably be made available for the Xbox One and PS4. EA has yet to announce the details though if they indeed plan to expand the game’s features for the console version. Those who play The Sims 4 PC version can purchase online several expansions to enjoy the game’s new features.
Meanwhile, in a post on Tweeter, Sim Guru Sara hinted that the next few months will going to be “super cool” for The Sims 4. The tweet has already been deleted, but Simmers are already excited. Recent teaser video leaked by gaming enthusiasts and creators themselves hinted that the new pack will have a unisex feature that allow users to use hairstyles for both male and female. We can just hope that the pack will be included the Xbox One and PS4 version of The Sims 4.
