Why would you possibly waste your time working toward your dreams and aspirations in the real world, when you can achieve them so much more easily and quickly in The Sims?! Today EA and Maxis Studios announced that they're bringing The Sims back with The Sims Mobile, which is set to hit iOS and Android soon!
You can expect all of the familiar Sims trappings and addictions, but this time, there's a much stronger emphasis on replay value and coming back to multiple generations of Sims. In The Sims Mobile, you'll get to pass down special items and attributes to the generations of Sims that come after you.
"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."
You can already see it, right? Your free time is slowly but surely slipping away. This is the perfect gameplay loop to keep players coming back again and again, just to see what kind of neat new career opportunities and rewarding hobbies they'll be able to pass down to new characters as their current avatars grow old and retire. You can bet that Maxis will be pushing constant updates as well, continuing to raise the bar with new career, relationships, things to buy, and homes to unlock.
Here are a few more feature points listed on the official page:
