To which, he replied that it is also his priority adding that bottom line, the players are the judge of it. He added saying that he’d be curious to find out what gamers think after their hands-on experience at Gamescom 2017 later next month.

Electronic Arts already revealed its Gamescom lineup earlier, where “The Sims 4” is part of, although, the publisher didn’t say what it has in store for the game at EA Live Show on Aug. 21.

But now, it's crystal clear that the console version of the game will be playable at the biggest gaming convention in Europe. It is slated for Aug. 22-26 at the expo grounds of Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany.

Other features

Duke also responded to other questions with regard to other features to expect from “The Sims 4” on Xbox One and PS4. Fans were also curious if it's multiplayer or a 2-player on a free play mode but the game producer said that the console version is single-player and that it’s not an open world either.

When asked if fans could expect some stuff and expansion packs similar to the PC version, SimGuruDuke said that the team has plans to port the content over. He doesn’t have the details as to what and when at this time, however, they are working on it.

He also confirmed that the game on consoles will be point and click and explained that it performed better in enabling the gameplay that makes the game great.

As for the visual quality, Duke said it is too soon for him to promise something, although, he said that the team has a big ambition in the graphics front.

In his blog, Duke cited that despite the game is not the first Sims title to release on consoles, it is the first in the history of the franchise that the same PC gameplay experience and content are offered to Xbox One and PS4 players.

"The Sims 4" console version is available now for pre-order in Deluxe Party Edition that offers a three-day early access prior to its official release on Nov. 17. #Hands On Experience
