After the success of The Sims 4 some
years ago, fans can’t help but look forward to the upcoming release of The Sims
5. In fact, there are speculations suggesting that it will be released in 2019
Basically, the normal interval
between each Sims installment is around 4 to 5 years. Thus, since the release
of The Sims 4 in 2014, the next big thing is supposed to be out this year.
Understandably so, fans simply
couldn’t hide their excitement since the New Year kicked in. Rumors even went
to some degree that they could actually predict what happens next to The Sims
But before going psychic over The
Sims 5, here are new features, gameplays, and platform you can expect out of
the upcoming release.
A Huge World And No Loading Screens
Sims 5 will no longer use loading screens because it will be featuring a
large world the characters can explore. Although this is not a groundbreaking
feature, it would be an important feature.
The Sims 1-3 has allowed the
characters to explore, but the 4th installment didn’t feature it
anymore. The advantage of having a huge world is that you can get around, go to
parties, work, and go home.
Driving Vehicles Around
According to sources, The Sims 5
will definitely have cars for people to drive. There seems to be no reason why
players are not allowed to drive vehicles in such an engaging game as The Sims.
The usual stuff that The Sims has
always offered should be quite obvious, including the 3D experience. This makes
players feel they are really part of The Sims worlds. This means that The Sims
5 will definitely bring back the 3D gameplay with tons of other cool features.
Gone are the days when the players
have to endure The Sims series with pixelated characters. Since its early days,
the series obviously evolved providing 3D experience with animations and cut
Moreover, the user interface has
also been polished, making it easier to navigate. Therefore, it will be highly
unlikely that The Sims will revisit history after experimenting with
low-quality pixels or cell-shaded graphics to represent the player.
Return Of Toddlers And Babies
There was an unexpected change with
The Sims 4 when it was released which was the removal of toddlers. That made
fans so confused and disappointed and now they are looking forward to get the
life stage back. Therefore, the upcoming installment will be re-introducing
babies and toddlers.
There was an issue pertaining to the
length of time that a Sim will consume 2 hours just eating a grilled cheese
sandwich. Although this was meant to mimic real life situations, people mostly
do not take hours to consume an average meal, right?
Therefore, The Sims 5 should take
much less time at completing actions, particularly simple activities as eating.
Perhaps it will be much better if they will have the ability to multitask so as
to achieve multiple goals at once.
