The Sims 4 is the latest version of the bestselling life simulation game from EA Games. Since its initial release in 2014, the Sims 4 has broken sales records and delighted Sims fans old and new with its advanced features. As one of the fastest Sims games to date even on lower-end computers, the Sims 4 gives you hours of game play with endless possibilities for fun.

The Sims 4 allows players to create simulated characters with unique personalities and build homes for them to live in. The Sims themselves are smarter than ever before, with emotions that change based on their environment and activities. Multitasking allows Sims to do several things at once, such as enjoying a meal while watching TV and carrying on a conversation.

Building homes for your Sims to live in is easier than ever before with the Sims 4’s building tools. The biggest difference in building from previous versions of the Sims is the ability to push and pull walls to make rooms smaller or larger instantly. You can also build community locations like bars, clubs and gyms for your Sims to hang out at. Rounded decks, adjustable foundation heights and easy roof placement are some of the other features of Sims 4 building.

Since its release, the Sims 4 has been expanded with several packs that area available for purchase separately. There are currently three types of expansions for the game: expansion packs that add new objects plus extensive options for new gameplay; game packs that add new objects and interactions focused on a particular theme; and stuff packs that add new objects. The game has free updates about once a month that often add new objects and gameplay.
