DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that Sims 4 is one of the best-selling PC games of all time, with over 5 million copies sold in just a year and a half? However, the fourth installation of the famous Sims series sparked controversy before its release when Maxis and EA, the game developer and publisher, announced that Sims 4 lacks some gameplay features available in other releases, such as open-world gameplay, pools, and toddlers. The developers cite time constraints as the main reason for the missing features, prompting over 25000 fans of the game to sign a petition to delay the game release until these features can be added to the base game. Other fans speculated that these features will be added later to the game as part of expansion packs or as free game patches. Maxis and EA defended the game by saying that despite the lack of playable features, the base game is stable and that the future of The Sims 4 is bright. Since then, 5 expansion packs have been released along with 14 stuff packs and 6 game packs.
