Versions of the game for the Play Station 4 and Xbox One consoles are also scheduled to be released on November 17, 2017.
The game has the same concept as its predecessor, The Sims 3; players control their Sims in various activities and can form relationships.
The game, like most of the series, does not have a defined final goal; gameplay is nonlinear.
There are up to 18 hair colour options per hairstyle.
Selections of premade designs of Sims are available to choose from, ranging from different body shapes to ethnicities.
There have also been several "game packs" released, including Parenthood which allows the players to shape the characters' children and teenagers as they go through life, as well as free updates that include major changes such as the addition of a toddler life stage.
The Sims 4 is a life simulation game, similar to its predecessors.
One major change to the Sims 4 Create A Sim functionality is that sliders have been replaced by direct mouse click, drag and pull.
