The Sims 4, the latest entry in Electronic Arts' iconic life-simulation franchise, first debuted for the PC back in 2014. Three years later, it now appears the game is getting a revival, via a re-release for Xbox One.
As spotted by TrueAchievements, an unexpected listing for an Xbox One version of The Sims 4 has appeared on the Xbox Store. Despite no official announcement from EA, the full-fledged store page confirms a console debut, expected for November 17, 2017.
Enjoy the power to create and control people in a virtual world where there are no rules. Express your creativity as you customize your Sims' distinct appearances and unique personalities. Choose their fashions, select their hairstyles, and give them life aspirations. Effortlessly build your Sims the perfect homes with the all-new room-based Build Mode, choosing your favorite designs and décor.
While earlier entries to The Sims have surfaced on previous generation consoles, the franchise has remained relatively PC-centric in recent years. As with other titles built with PC in mind, it will be interesting to see how the game adapts to a controller and the changes made during the transition. It's also not currently clear if expansions will be making their way to console, following a strong line of post-launch PC content still releasing into 2017.
For now, we'll have to sit back and wait for an official announcement from Electronic Arts, with further details on the Xbox One version. While pricing is currently unavailable, those who choose to preorder later down the line will supposedly gain access to the "Perfect Patio Stuff" DLC pack. As always, let us know if you're interested in The Sims 4 for Xbox One in the comments section below.
