The Sims 4 will launch on 17 November on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles worldwide, ushering in the iconic game players know and love to new platforms

Electronic Arts announced The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs Expansion Pack is available worldwide on PC and Mac, and that The Sims 4 is coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles on 17 November.

“Our team has been working hard to develop The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs and The Sims 4 on consoles, and we’re proud to offer rich and rewarding experiences across multiple platforms to our incredible community. Providing fans with a variety of entry points into The Sims universe is a huge priority for us, and we’re optimistic for the opportunities it provides us to grow,” said Maxis General Manager, Joe Nickolls.

With The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs, players can design their perfect pet with unique features and personalities, while discovering new activities to enjoy in the charming coastal shores of Brindleton Bay.

“We know how much the community loves their real-life cats and dogs, and we’re so happy they can now bring their beloved four-legged companions into their Sims’ world. Cats and dogs have always been such a huge component to any Sims installment, and we’re so excited to finally bring these lovable friends into The Sims 4,” said Lyndsay Pearson, Executive Producer on The Sims.

An initial selection of fan-favorite downloadable Packs will also be available for individual purchase at launch, including The Sims 4 City Living Expansion Pack, The Sims 4 Vampires Game Pack, The Sims 4 Perfect Patio Stuff Pack and The Sims 4 Vintage Glamour Stuff Pack.

Developed by Maxis and in partnership with the talented team at Blind Squirrel Games, The Sims 4 offers console players the same emotional connection and unique gameplay as the PC base game, along with a number of additional content updates added to the base game post-launch, including pools, new careers, and a toddlers’ life stage. Players will enjoy creating and controlling their Sims from the comfort of the couch as they pick hairstyles, explore life aspirations, and shape the entertaining moments of Sims’ lives.
