It is similar in concept to the game which was released before this, The Sims 3; where the players control different activities, and can develop relationships of their Sims.
The game, like the others in its series is does not have a direct gameplay and there is no fixed goal to achieve in it. To create more versatility in the game content, the Create-a-Sim as well as the Build Mode tools are redesigned quite a bit.
Just like in real life, the emotional state of our sim plays a prominent role in game play in comparison to the previous titles in the series, which now has effects on social interaction, user interface, and personality.
Three expansion packs have been made available by EA, with the most recent (City Living) being released in November 2016. Some of the many other game packs includes, Vampires which enables you to create vampire sims!
