EA Teases Next Generation of The Sims, Dubbed ‘Project Rene’

Inevitably, shortly after The Sims 4 was released, everyone started whispering the question, “When are we going to hear about The Sims 5?” Well, Maxis has announced what looks like the next generation of The Sims, but calling it “The Sims 5” might not be entirely accurate.

It’s currently tentatively titled “Project Rene” and was first revealed at today’s Behind the Sims Summit. According to a press release, the name Rene was chosen to refer to words like renewal, renaissance, and rebirth “to represent the developers’ renewed commitment to a bright future for The Sims.”

Are you Sims 5?Still do not know

Project Rene is in its very early stages and probably won’t be available for a few years. As such, we don’t know too many details about what it actually entails, but we do know that it’s still basically The Sims.

While streaming, we saw some furniture customization at a level of detail not possible in previous Sims games. It included a demonstration of adjusting elements such as the design and shape of the . A similar level of detailed editing was seen on the sofa, including changing the color and design of individual cushions and changing the overall shape of various elements throughout the single piece.

Additionally, I have verified that the same game files are copied to both the PC and the mobile device. Maxis has revealed that Project Rene will be playable on multiple supported devices. It also works both as a solo experience and as a collaboration with others.

Lyndsay Pearson, Vice President of Franchise Creative for The Sims, said:

“Today marks the beginning of our journey over the next few years as we work on our next game and creative platform, now titled Project Rene. We’re building on the same foundations that have made us unique and pushed boundaries to create new experiences.There’s a lot to share as we move forward in the development and milestones of the game.”

Future of Sims 4

Maxis is committed to keeping the community updated for years to come, and early access will be made available to small groups over time.

In addition to revealing Project Rene, other interesting tidbits from the presentation include a new CurseForge mod manager and a partnership with Overwolf for a user-generated content discovery platform. Now that the game is free to play, the promise of monthly updates to The Sims 4 and some quick visual teases for two future Sims expansion packs. There have also been toddler bullies that make an appearance (and are no longer stuck in their crib).

A review at launch of The Sims 4 said it succeeded in “becoming a deep and complex game with lots of interesting emotional possibilities when it comes to Sims interactions”, but at the time , didn’t feel like it was living up to its full potential. It dates back to his 2014. Since then, a series of paid expansion packs and free updates have filled in much of what was missing in the first place. Earlier this year, Maxis added sexual orientation as a feature in response to a years-long request from the community, and over time to make more sexual orientations and genders more inclusive than ever. We will continue to refine its functionality.

There is no release date for Project Rene yet.
