August 21 will be a big day for fans of The Sims, a series of life simulation games developed by Maxis and The Sims Studio. The first official look at the game will happen at a video game trade fair in Germany.

The announcement came on June 18, 2013 from the official The Sims 3 Twitter account. It read, “Big Announcement! #TheSims4 will be revealed in Gamescom in Germany! The game will take the @EA stage to show off the game. #TheSimsLB”
Gamescom, a place for video game developers to show off their latest games, is a five day event. The dates are set for August 21-25 this year. Over 80 countries and 600 exhibitors will be represented.
Back to Basics
The Sims started out as a single-player computer game, but eventually reached other systems and became an online game that many people could play together. Some people didn’t like the way The Sims seemed to be headed, which might be why creators have decided to go back to the basics. Set to be released in 2014, The Sims 4 will be an offline, single player game for Windows and Mac computers.
