The Sims 4 coming in 2014 to PC and Mac

Maxis has shed a little more light on what we can expect from The Sims 4 when it hits PC and Mac in 2014.

"The Sims 4 (opens in new tab) celebrates the heart and soul of the Sims themselves, giving players a deeper connection with the most expressive, surprising and charming Sims ever in this single-player offline experience," the Electronic Arts blog post states. "The Sims 4 encourages players to personalize their world with new and intuitive tools while offering them the ability to effortlessly share their creativity with friends and fans."

The Sims 3 released in 2009 and has kept devoted players busy with a cornucopia of add-on and expansion packs (most recently University Life), much as its predecessor The Sims 2 did from 2004 on. It looks like Maxis is keeping to a 5-year rhythm for new mainstream releases in its best-selling series.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
