Yes, The Sims 5 Will Have Multiplayer, But Don't Expect It To Be An MMO
The game will be available on both mobile and PC devices.
More multiplayer information has dropped on the next generation of The Sims, Project Rene. The game director himself, Grant Rodiek had some information to share in the first episode of "Behind The Sims". "Now, one thing to keep in mind is that Project Rene is not an MMO," He said. "It is not this public, shared space where everything you do is always with other people. You could play on your own, on your terms, and then again, when you want on your terms, you can invite others to come and play with you. That's the structure that we're pursuing, and we think that's really cool and perfect for The Sims."
The game has started early day playtesting, but Rodiek explains this is just the start of a long journey, and the game is still years out. The game will also be available on mobile devices, allowing for cross-platform compatibility on mobile and PC platforms. While the PC will provide the "true, rich experience”, mobile will create a somewhat different experience. The challenge in balancing these two platforms out is “huge” as Rodiek explains, and based on the game still being years out, it sounds like they will have plenty of time to fine-tune this new play style.
