EA has attempted to bring a Sims-like experience to mobile devices before (most recently with The Sims Freeplay), but it looks like smartphone and tablet users will soon get to experience something much closer to the real thing. That’s because the publisher recently unveiled the debut trailer for The Sims Mobile.
In addition to shrinking down the lifestyle simulation the franchise is best known for, The Sims Mobile wants to tell stories over multiple generations, and players will be able to collect Heirlooms that commemorate a growing family tree:
The Sims Mobile Features
- Shape Your Sims Legacy: Shape your Sims’ families over multiple generations. When your Sims accomplish their career goals and retire, you’ll be rewarded with Heirlooms that unlock hobbies and careers for future generations, allowing new Sims to tell deeper stories.
- Create Unique Sims: Customize your Sims with distinct appearances, hairstyles, outfits, and accessories. Choose different personality traits and life goals!
- Build A Home: Personalize your Sims home layouts and designs, and decorate with a variety of furniture, appliances, decorations, and more.
- Play Together: Host and attend parties with other Sims to socialize, show off your amazing house, earn rewards, and develop new relationships.
The Sims Mobile will be available “soon,” and fans can sign up at the official website to be notified when it’s ready to launch.
