The Sims 4 allows players to create a variety of unique characters with distinct appearances, personalities and emotions. There's a deep level of customization as you can choose attributes like body shape, hairstyles, gaits and clothes. You can also give their lives purpose by selecting their traits and aspirations. All of these factors give you control over their being. As Orwellian as all of this sounds, it's entertaining nonetheless.
When The Sims 4 launched on Xbox One, many gamers were disappointed that it didn't feature Xbox One X enhancements. Luckily, the latest patch changes that. Buried deep within the latest post about the game were the following tidbits.
- Simmers on Xbox One X can now get more from the additional power of the console and should notice higher Sim texture quality levels while in Live mode.
- The Sims 4 might not be a game about reflexes but it doesn't mean we want to be stuck at 30 FPS, that is why we have lifted the frame rate cap on Xbox One X.
It's great to see that the game now looks and runs better on Xbox One X. An increase to the frame rate is much more important than a boost to resolution. It makes everything look smoother and reduces input lag, even if it's a relaxed game like The Sims 4.
