The latest iteration in the best-selling EA juggernaut franchise, The Sims 4 was originally released on September 2, 2014, for PC, later being ported to Mac, and then PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. It continues in the footsteps of its predecessors and allows you to create your own world in the Sims universe and control your Sims, choosing their every move and their ultimate fate.

Virtually, of course.
