The Sims 4 was launched by EA eight years ago. Many fans have been concerned about the future of the franchise, even though it appears like the game still has a long life ahead of it as it transitions to free-to-play. The publisher and developer Maxis revealed the upcoming installment in the franchise and provided a sneak preview on Tuesday during a demo.
Project Rene is the name given to the upcoming Sims game.
Project Rene, which Maxis is now in the very early phases of developing, won’t be ready for several more years. But it did provide some information at the Behind the Sims Summit, such as a glimpse at more in-depth personalization.
What can you expect from Project Rene?
You will be able to alter the designs, hues, and shapes of objects, as well as the different components of each item. For instance, you may modify the size and shape of the footboard on a bed or alter the arrangement and pattern of the cushions on a couch. Without having to rely on the grid system that The Sims has long used, it appears that you’ll have a greater creative license when putting objects in their proper locations.
You can play Project Rene by yourself or with pals (sharing furniture sets, for example, is a possibility). Additionally, it will be a cross-platform game with cross-progression, allowing you to go on playing even if you switch devices. That could also be a clue that Project Rene will eventually be a free-to-play game.
According to EA, this is the first-ever peek at a Sims game. As a result, some of these anticipated features may change over the next few years, and there will be a lot more. Project Rene is being developed by Maxis, and it wants player feedback. As a result, it is adopting a similar strategy to that of its sibling firm Full Circle, which has asked fans to test out extremely early versions of the new Skate and provide input to help direct its development.
Check out this small sample of what Project Rene and the team, together with The Sims 4 and mobile teams, are working on at the moment. We will keep updating you all on Project Rene over the coming couple of years. Meanwhile, feel free to share what you like about The Sims saga most.
