Are you a gamer and into stimulation games, then why not try the “The Sims 4”. This Sim includes all the micromanagement and tinkering that you will ever get. The Sims 4 is one of the greatest video game series I know that has ever existed. It provides a consistent escape from boredom.
Unfortunately, the Sims 4 lacks multiplayer on PS4. That is, there’s no multiplayer mode on the PS4 as well as the Xbox One. The Sims 4 is really a single-player only title.
Although, a mod is available on PC from Sims VIP. So, if you want to play the game on PC and you download the mod, you will be able to play games online with your friends.
Furthermore, we do hope that the “multiplayer” feature will be available in the “Sims 5”. Because now the only way you can play with a person is just sitting close to the person and passing the controller.
How does The Sims 4 work?
To make use of the Sims 4, you will start by creating a Sim. that is an avatar of a person. You might be wondering what an Avatar is.
An Avatar is a graphical representation of a person’s image or the person’s character. It can also be defined as a cartoon liked image of a particular person. Like I was saying, you will begin by creating your Avatar, choosing your hairstyle, and others.
The Sims also enables you to start a game at any stage of your life, starting from a toddler to an adult. You can also assign feminine traits to masculine characters and vice versa. And also mix and match clothing and cosmetics options.
As soon as your Sim is ready, you will be given a little amount of money so as to purchase a house in one of the towns.
Sim 4 Bugs.
While accessing the Sim 4 on PS 4 sometimes, the Sim’s skill bar would tend to hang and wouldn’t stop till you reload the game.
Also, some times, notifications and menu descriptions would just pop up and stick on the screen. And this takes so long without a way to cancel or close them.
Some other bugs are that at times, the audio and animations go out of sync when fast-forwarding. And also loading into build mode takes time, at times it starts with dropped frames.
Most especially in areas or locations with lots of furniture or Sims. Moving around the lot too fast results in a small hitch.
The Sims 4 is available for download on the Microsoft Store and the PS Store.
The price of the PS4 version and Xbox One version is currently £34.99.
