There’s a blast from the past as The Sims is preparing to come back in a big way.
Those colourful characters have cemented themselves as a part of gaming history as we play God and basically ruin their lives. Don’t tell me you never locked a Sim in a room until they have wet themselves.
If you want to relive the magic (for free), Electronic Arts has a surprise for fans of The Sims 4. Available to download for absolutely nothing, all players have to do is sign up for an Origin account and visit a link to The Sims 4.
You’d better be quick though — the offer only runs until May 28. There really are no catches, apart from the fact it’s just the main game without any of the expansion packs.
First released back in 2014, The Sims 4 wasn’t quite as popular as the critically acclaimed The Sims 3. Still, there’s a loyal fanbase that can’t get enough of anything Sims-related.
While The Sims 4 controversially ditched some of the previous games’ best features, the expansion packs have slowly introduced some of these back into the title. The most recent release was The Sims 4: Strangerville in February.
Elsewhere, Moschino has you covered with its new collection. Dressing in perfect pixels, the designer fashion house’s latest wears will turn you into a real-life Sims.
Jeremy Scott has become the ultimate master of pop culture with his capsule collection. The Sims is due to celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2020, making it one of the longest-running gaming franchises out there.
To celebrate this milestone, Scott has teamed with Moschino to release a variety of Sims-themed clothing, phone cases, and handbags. Fans can also get their own Plumbob (the green diamond above a Sim’s head) earrings, umbrellas, and swimwear.
Speaking about the collection, Scott said: “I love the idea of being able to imagine, design and bring to life a world of individual personas with The Sims universe.”
He continued: “That concept emulates what I get to do for each collection at Moschino as I create a fantasy universe of spectacular storylines and characters.”
Scott has transformed models Stella Maxwell, Aiden and Denek K into his own real-life Sims to show off what’s coming our way. Safe to say, the nostalgia-packed idea has already created a buzz online.
