Will Project Rene AKA The Sims 5, Be Free-to-Play?
Since the base game of The Sims 4 became free-to-play last year, EA Games has given an opportunity for people around the globe to download the game and play with life, for free. Now, with Simmers already in the loop about the launch of its successor, The Sims 5, it’s a great thing that the upcoming game will also be free-to-play. Read on, as we’ve got the details for you below!
1. So Much Is In Store For The Sims 5.
The Sims 5 holds a world of promise in its development. With dedicated game developers around the globe, the game is definitely something to look forward to. However, this fifth installment of the Sims franchise is still in its infancy. Before its official release, the Sims Team is meticulously preparing and engaging in lots of playtests, and exploring small public trials, as well as large-scale early access. These measures aim to fine-tune and refine the game, ensuring a polished product when it finally hits the market.
2. Yes, The Sims 5 Will Be Free-to-Play!
Here’s some exciting news: The core gameplay of The Sims 5 will be free-to-play! That means everyone can dive into the Sims world without reaching for their wallets. Yet, there’s a catch. The Sims Team hints that more advanced features may require additional content purchases. Meaning, the added tweaks of the game will be behind a paywall. Additionally, avid Simmers are speculating that the membership tiers, previously considered for The Sims 4, might be introduced this time around in The Sims 5.
3. But, The Sims 4 Is Here To Stay!
But hey, while The Sims 5 takes its place in the limelight, The Sims 4 isn’t going anywhere just yet! New content will continue to be launched in The Sims 4 universe. As confirmed in the official FAQs of The Sims Behind The Summit, “The Sims 4 is not going away anytime soon.” The dedicated team has already spent eight years expanding and enriching the game, and they remain super committed to crafting fresh experiences for players.
4. Plus, All New Stuff packs Await!
Lyndsay Pearson, the Vice President of Franchise Creative for the Sims team, brings insights into the future packs for The Sims 5. She shares, “Beyond regular updates to the core game, we will sell content and packs, but we want to change that mix a little bit.” In her explanation, the core game of The Sims 5 will introduce basic gameplay concepts that can stand alone as nice features. However, as mentioned above, they will grant access to expansions and enhancements of these said concepts through pack purchases. Oh well, we’ll see how that goes! The best thing is that the core game is still free-to-play.
Final Thoughts: Free-to-Play Means Yey!
With free-to-play core gameplay, more customization options, and much-awaited gameplay concepts, The Sims 5 is really shaping up to be something extraordinary.
