Watch 15 minutes of gameplay from The Sims 4

EA and Maxis are releasing the demo that was used at this year's E3 to offer up a new 15-minute look at The Sims 4.


EA and Maxis are hoping to entice fans of the long-running Sims franchise with some new features and a fresh coat of paint. So with that in mind, the Sims creators have released the demo that they showed off at E3 earlier this year, offering up 15 minutes of new gameplay footage.

The video below displays the Sims creation system, before jumping into gameplay proper to show off their new personality traits, expressive character models, and the benefits that come with certain emotional states. For example, producer Ryan Vaughan explains that he got his Sim in a fight and left him in an angry state, which allowed him to focus that newfound intensity into activities like workouts.

Check out the full walkthrough to learn more about what this new installment of the Sims will feature. The game is set to hit PC on September 2.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
