The Sims 4

Electronic Arts’s popular life-simulation game The Sims 4 is coming to consoles this autumn.

On July 26, 2017, Electronic Arts announced a console release of its massively popular Sims 4 title. Previously available only for PC/Mac users, the Sims 4 console version has a worldwide release date of November 17, 2017, for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms.

Players can preorder their copy of the game on EA’s website, and doing so will net them bonus items for use in the game. Pre-ordering a base copy of the game will grant users a digital code, which will allow them to download The Sims 4 Perfect Patio Stuff, a bundle containing hot tubs, more fashion choices, and bonus home décor. A pre-order of The Sims 4 Deluxe Party Edition will net gamers the aforementioned ‘Patio Stuff’ as well as three days of early access to the full game and several other digital content bundles. In addition, the Deluxe Party Edition includes the ‘Awesome Animal Hats’ digital content, which features a collection of fun animal hats for Sims to wear around town.

One of the best-selling video games series of all time, the Sims franchise has captivated fans for almost twenty years with creative, inclusive, and open-ended gameplay. Players create and control unique virtual people (the eponymous Sims), building homes and pursuing careers and relationships, while experiencing all of life’s ups and downs along the way.

Developed by Electronic Arts subsidiary EA Maxis (SimCity, Spore), the Sims series was first conceived in 1991 after game designer Will Wright lost his home to a fire and had to rebuild his life. Released in February 2000, the original Sims went on to sell over 16 million copies worldwide, surpassing Myst as the best-selling PC game in history. This legacy of popularity continued with The Sims 2, The Sims 3, The Sims 4, and many other spin-offs and expansion packs.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain ability by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
