EA releases ‘The Sims 4’ for Mac after missing 2014 launch


Electronic Arts has finally released the anticipated “The Sims 4” for Mac, as previously announced in January. The Sims 4 was initially available for Windows in September, but it’s taken several months for the company to launch a Mac version of the game, and lead to the company missing its original 2014 deadline.

The new version of “The Sims” 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.

“The Sims 4” comes with new customization features, including enhancements in the The Create-a-Sim and Build Mode tools to allow more versatility when creating game content. Emotional state plays a larger role in gameplay than in previous games in the series, with effects on social interaction, user interface, and personality.

“The Sims 4” is available through EA’s Origin platform for $59.99. If you already downloaded the version for Windows, you can have the Mac version at no extra cost. EA is also offering a deluxe version available for $69.99, which includes exclusive bonus content.
