The Sims 4 Coming PS4 and Xbox One This November

Now you can usher your Sims to an untimely demise on consoles.

Electronic Arts and Maxis announced today that The Sims 4 will be coming to Xbox One and PlayStation on November 17, 2017. Since its launch in September 2014, The Sims 4 has been for PC and Mac only, with an alternate version of the game on mobile platforms.

"The addition of a console-version of The Sims 4 has been long-awaited by fans and newcomers alike, and we at Maxis are beyond excited to bring The Sims to new platforms," said executive producer Lyndsay Pearson in the press release. "The game delivers a beautiful The Sims experience on console and comes packed with tons of the fan-favorite content, so players can look forward to the unique gameplay, self-expression, and fun that have come to be tentpoles of The Sims brand. The possibilities to play with life are as endless as the players' creativity."

Electronic Arts is fuzzy on which content be coming to The Sims 4 on consoles, noting that it will include "many of the additional content updates added to The Sims 4 post-launch." Pre-ordering the game on console nets you the The Sims 4 Perfect Patio Stuff pack, which was released back in June of 2015 on PC, so it's not like players will get everything.

There's various ways to get in on The Sims action early. Players who pre-order the The Sims 4 Deluxe Party Edition will also receive the game on November 14, 2017, three days earlier than everyone else. EA Access members can also get the game on November 9, via the Play First Trial.
