The Sims 4 essential Starter guide

The Sims 4 is finally upon us, ditching the open world format of The Sims 3 along with a whole host of other features, in favour of a simpler, cleaner interface and more streamlined experience that you can read more about in our Sims 4 review diary.

The vast customisation is a distant memory, and the star of the show is the much lauded 'smarter Sim' with the focus being drawn to their individual ambitions, emotions, relationships and the nuances these bring to the various facets of their lives - like the tedium of daily ablutions for example. Why take a shower when you can take a thoughtful shower, a steamy shower, or play in the jets of a fancy pants bath tub? Why just use the toilet when you can pee like a champion? You want to take a nap? Forget about it. You want to be napping lazily. Simply put, it's all in the adjectives.
