The Sims is reaching all new levels of weird in the new mini-trailers.
"Cue the 80’s montage!"
Sims are now being graded on their woohooing abilities based on their compatibility. That’s right, graded.
TS4 for Mac to have a different release date?
It seems that Graham is implying that the release date for Mac will be different than for PC. We’ve pretty much assumed, up until now, that the Fall 2014 release window was for Mac and PC, but unfortunately it is only for PC.
As a Mac player, this makes me very anxious. If TS4 comes out for PC before Mac, I’d have to get Bootcamp and deal with that whole nightmare. I really hope that both versions are coming out at the same time.
We can’t assume that TS4 will have a delayed release for Mac because of this tweet, but we definitely shouldn’t assume that it won’t.

Q:Hi! Just curious if Sim traits & Voice Sliders will still be present in Sims 4.
Hi, CherryBunny. Yes, traits and voice sliders will be returning in The Sims 4.
Here’s the long answer:
Traits & Voice Sliders
We learned from Sims Camp that each sex will have three different voice styles to choose from and you can adjust the pitch from low to high for each.
- Female Voices: Sweet, Melodic, Lilted
- Male Voices: Clear, Warm, Brash

With traits Ray Mazza confirmed you can choose up to five like before but your Sims will also be able to unlock special traits by completing Aspirations. Here’s what we’ve read so far about traits:
Whims, Traits, Aspirations
We’re used to crafting Sim personalities with Traits, and those of us that played The Sims 2 even remember when we used to control their Wishes. The Sims 4 lets us get to know our Sims’ thoughts and feelings not just through Traits, but through Whims and Aspirations. Whims are like the thought bubbles that come up when Sims are out in the world doing stuff. They’re often something a Sim wants to do in the moment, like mix a drink or play with a chess set. Fulfilling a Whim grants the Sim something like Lifetime Happiness points to spend on rewards.
Aspirations are more long-term Sim desires, similar to the Lifetime Wishes from The Sims 3. A Sim might want to master a certain skill or career, or own certain items. Unlike The Sims 3, which limited players to only one Lifetime Wish, the Aspirations in The Sims 4 are organized such that every Sim can have as many as he or she wants. Once a Sim completes an Aspiration, they’ll get the corresponding Aspiration Trait that goes along with it. A Sim that becomes a master chef, for example, will get a cooking-based Aspiration Trait. —Meet The Sims 4, The Sims Official Magazine
And the unforgettable Sociopath trait…
The character evolves as you meet her desires. So, if you can unlock the sociopath trait, she will get ‘fun’ from torture.”—Ray Mazza
