For six long years we have waited for The Sims 5, but very little has actually been revealed in terms of new features!

That said, there are a few staples of the Sims experience that will likely play a big role in the new game.



At the heart of The Sims exists a thriving modding community.

However, with no recent update on the status of The Sims 5 or the key features that it will boast, we can not confirm which mods will play a role in the real-life sim!

ULTRA-REALISM: Isn’t this what you wanted?

What is meant by this is that that sims’ moods will be prolonged, so you’ll need to put in a bit more effort to change their frame of mind.

Just like in real life.

This mod can be challenging, especially when dealing with an angry teenager, but roBurky explains that:

“the aim is to make emotions feel a little more meaningful, to make your sims a little more human.”
