‘The Sims 4’ landing on Mac in February, after missing 2014 launch


Electronic Arts announced on Tuesday that its title “The Sims 4” will launch for Mac in February. The game house had previously promised a 2014 launch for the hit game on Mac after previously releasing it for the PC, but didn’t meet its own deadline.

Kotaku spoke with Electronics Arts who said it didn’t have a specific date in February, just that it would launch during the month and be similarly priced to the PC version at $50. Current PC owners of the game will get a copy of the Mac version for free, though EA representatives were not able to confirm if future customers will get any sort of “cross-buy” opportunity.

The game has the same concept as its predecessor, “The Sims 3”. Players control their Sims in various activities and form relationships. The game, like the rest of the series, does not have a defined final goal; gameplay is nonlinear.
