The Sims 4 - Gamescom Reveal

Hi there Simmers!

As all of you probably know, The Sims 4 was revealed today at Gamescom. Attendees were treated to a live action teaser trailer of the game and a developer-narrated gameplay trailer, showing off the overhauled Create-A-Sim and Build mode tools as well as an overhaul to the A.I., moods and relationships systems and a confirmation that the game contains erm...rockets!

Visually, it looks like a throwback to The Sims 2 and judging by the long draw distance, the open world component of The Sims 3 has been retained. This time around it looks like they're working on refining the gameplay rather than attempting again to innovate. As weird as the rocket may seem, it does leave much to wonder if it has a real purpose besides an apparent WooHoo location. From initial inspection, it looks like we're getting more of the same but more streamlined and the tool upgrades, particularly with CAS, will probably receive a warm welcome.

We've only seen the foundations of the game so far and I'm confident we'll see more later on. What are your thoughts on what we've seen of the game so far?
