Many console players have been recently reaching out to us asking whether or not internet is required to play The Sims 4 on Xbox One or PlayStayion 4. With the increase in recent emails, we want to throw up this post so you can easily find your answer. 🙂
Yes, you will need internet to download but not to play.

SimGuruDuke took the time to answer this question on Twitter, letting players know that you will only require internet to download the game (updates, DLC, etc) but you will not need constant internet to run the game as you play. Additionally, he also confirmed the size of The Sims 4 Digital Deluxe edition is around 12GB.
