Electronic Arts and Maxis Studio held a half-hour presentation of the new part of The Sims life simulator. Behind The Sims Summit Stream Event is #11 on YouTube's Trending Videos list.
The Sims 5 is currently codenamed Project Rene and has no official name. The creators called the new part "The Sims next generation", it will have more gameplay options. A construction mode was demonstrated with the ability to change furniture elements and their size. Also in the new part they promise to return the style creation editor from The Sims 3.
Maxis assured that Project Rene will "dramatically change" the experience of players from how their players think and behave in the virtual world. Players will be given more opportunities to equip their worlds. In one in-game world, for the first time, players will be able to interact with each other in a cooperative mode, while The Sims was previously a single player game.
Don't expect the game to release anytime soon, as Project Rene's production is at a very early stage.
