Hi Simmers! I am here to tell you more about the vibrant worlds where you and your Sims will be creating your own unique stories in The Sims 4.
We start out in Willow Creek which is very green, bountiful and should feel a little familiar to longtime fans. We wanted to pair Willow Creek with something completely different and that world is Oasis Springs. Oasis Springs packs a little visual punch with rocky landscaping, evoking those fond memories for players of Lunar Lakes and Lucky Palms. You’ll find it’s not just the landscapes that are distinct, even the home styles are unique to each world.
Once again, we will be at the world’s biggest annual convention for interactive games: the gamescom. From 13 to 17 August 2014, we will be presenting our hottest titles for the upcoming games season – FIFA 15, Dragon Age: Inquisition, The Sims 4, Battlefield Hardline and Dawngate. As usual, you will also get all the latest news from the convention right here online.
The best thing about gamescom: you can play the most anticipated games of the year right at our Electronic Arts booth, or watch exclusive gameplay scenes and trailers. If you’re lucky, you might win one of the coveted Fast Passes right here before you leave, allowing you to skip the waiting lines.
And if you can’t make it to Cologne, we have something great to offer you online: as was the case in previous years, you can visit this website for our live reports from the convention halls and the EA press conference. You can expect interviews with producers, game demos, news, videos, photos, competitions and much, much more… get ready to be amazed!
The complete EA@gamescom 2014 website will be available at this URL one week before the gamescom kicks off. To get more info on your favourite games in advance, visit our social media channels.
