The Sims Mobile finally official for Android and iOS
The Sims Mobile was unveiled last year, in early May. Back then, it also received a soft launch on Google Play, being downloaded by more than a million Android users until now. Earlier today, Electronic Arts and Maxis announced the worldwide launch of this title for both Android and iOS devices.
According to the official press release, "The Sims Mobile brings players the authentic experience fans expect from The Sims, where players can enjoy shaping their Sims' lifestyles by creating unique personalities, developing a range of relationships and designing the world they play in from their mobile phone or tablet."
This title is not the first game in the series to hit mobile devices. In fact, The Sims Mobile is based on The Sims 4 and The Sims FreePlay. The Sims 4 arrived for Microsoft Windows PCs in September 2014 and reached Macs next year, in February. By the end of October 2016, Electronic Arts managed to sell in excess of 5 million The Sims 4 copies worldwide. The Sims FreePlay had arrived in December 2011 on iOS, but it also reached Android a few months later, in February 2012.
The Sims Mobile comes with new guided narratives and multiple social features that aim to provide "a unique blend of delightful gameplay experiences and social platform-inspired connections." The Android version has a 4.6/5 Google Play rating after more than 88,000 reviews, while the iOS build holds a 4.8/5 score in the App Store after over 5,000 reviews.
