Like many The Sims 4 fans, you might appreciate playing the game on PC and Mac but would like to see it on consoles like the Xbox One. After all, there’s something relaxing about being able to play your favorite game in front of a big-screen TV while sitting on your favorite couch. Unfortunately, developers Maxis and The Sims Studio and publisher Electronic Arts have not made any announcement about the Xbox One version of the game. While waiting for the official statement, though, you can do your research and learn as much as you can about it. Here are a few tidbits to help you get started.
- It might not be released this year
A lot of The Sims 4 fans are expecting to see the Xbox One version this year, but it seems that this won’t likely happen. One reason for this may be that Maxis and The Sims Studios are finding it difficult to port the game to console. If they’re having major technical problems, it might take them some time before they can successfully create the console versions of the game.
- It might contain all of the DLCs of the PC version
The developers are rumored to include all of the downloadable content that are found in the PC version of The Sims 4. It make sense if you’d look at it from a marketing standpoint; after all, it would be hard to encourage players to buy the console version of the game if it won’t allow them to access the items, careers, skills, and locations that they’ve been enjoying in PC. So, more likely than not, the Xbox One version of The Sims 4 will contain all the DLCs, such as the Dine Out game pack (which will be released on June 7).
- It might cost around $60 or more
According to Christian Today, it’s highly possible that The Sims 4 for Xbox One would be offered two pricing tiers: a standalone game that costs around $59.99 to $69.99 and a bundled package (which includes the game plus all the DLCs) at a higher price. This pricing system has been used by Maxis and EA in the past with The Sims and The Sims 2, so it’s highly likely that that they would use it again now.
These are just some of the things that you can expect from the Xbox One version of The Sims 4. Take note, though, that these are just speculations and that there has been no official announcements from EA, Maxis, and The Sims Studios, so it’s best to take them with a grain of salt.
