Hello people For those of you who are interested in The Sims 4, You have to know the game was originally meant to be a multiplayer game. You can easily check websites telling more about it, for example here, here and here When the game was not released yet, it was called The Sims Olympus. Here are some leaked concept videos: Even the logo was not the same. It was a green plumbob joined by a blue one - representing the online friend, supposed to join you. You can see the slogan "Play with life... Together." You can see, in the following picture, your sim with the traditionnal green plumbob, with his online friends, wearing blue plumbobs. In early 2014, you could read in the official FAQ: Will there be an online component to The Sims 4? There will be additional fun and social gameplay elements for players who choose to go online (more to come on that later on) but the core game is designed to be played offline.It's up to the player to choose how they want to play. You will need an EA/Origin account to install the game. Once installed, you don't need to be online to play. Many players still think we can get this feature in the future. Maybe in a future expansion pack or any kind of DLC. We all hardly want TSO to come back, but TS4 may be interested in mutliplayer, we can give it a chance.
