Unexpected announcement today! A new The Sims game will come to your mobile device!
It will run on both iOs and Android and will be here ‘soon’, there is no release date yet.
It is currently in soft launch in Brazil and is free to play, there are micro transactions though
The released trailer shows us a lot of familiar items from The Sims 4. It looks like basically all the items we currently have in The Sims 4, including Game Packs, Stuff packs and Expansion packs, are in the mobile game. Of course we don’t know yet if it really all is there, but we can recognize stuff from The Sims 4 Get to Work, Get Together, Spa Day, Dine Out, Movie Hangout Stuff and I’m sure I missed a few things.
But why do we need to play this mobile game? Well, it has something that The Sims 4 does not have, an online element! You can play together!
How that exactly works, we haven’t seen yet, but the blue plumbobs above other Sims’ heads we can assume those are other players to interact with.
Create a Sim and Building
You can of course create your own Sims and build your own house.
With the items from The Sims 4 base game and the packs we will have lots and lots of items to choose
from to build with and create with.
Looks like Maxis has listened to earlier complaints when The Sims 4 released that it was bare.
A few Simgurus we know have been working on the game, like SimGuruRusskii, SimguruRiley and SimGuruAzure, and twitterless SimGuruJoAnna who also worked on The Sims 3 store back in the day.
The Sims Freeplay will still continue, and will be in the app stores side by side.

BeyondSims also shared a gameplay video that shows some new gameplay, like the fashion career and a sewing machine!
We can’t wait to hear more about this game, especially when it will be released! We are excited, are you?!
