Keep reading as we’ve outlined what a new instalment of The Sims could look like on the Xbox Series X.
Latest News – Online Multiplayer Wishlist
ever since EA’s CEO, Andrew Wilson, hinted that the new title will have a focus on social features, fans have been speculating that an online multiplayer mode is coming to the game!
If this is proven to be true, it would be huge for The Sims community! You can check out what features we want to see here.
The Sims 5 Xbox Series X
The question is, will the game come to Xbox Series X? Well, at this point we’ll have to make a few predictions as there is no official confirmation as of yet.
Despite having no fixed date, The Sims 5 looks set to release in early 2021.
In the past, EA has appeared to have a formula of releasing a new Sims game as a PC exclusive for the first few years. But don’t rule anything out just yet!
The date itself is, as you may have noticed, after the release date of the Xbox Series X, so there could be something in the works!
What does Next Gen mean for the game?
Xbox Series X has some pretty serious power and put simply, may be able to accommodate some large increases in graphics.
Developers across the board could be looking for a chance to utilise the Xbox Series X to its full potential – at least, we hope they will be!
The good news is that EA actually confirmed that The Sims 5 will be rendered with better graphics than ever.
But what would better graphics look like with The Sims 5 Xbox Series X?
For anyone who’s played the game, they’ll know that graphics are more on the ‘animated’ side. The game itself has its own signature style and isn’t openly trying to recreate real-life – much like Minecraft and Lego Star Wars…
Well, if they utilise the upcoming Xbox Series X’s feature called Ray Tracing, we could see some changes to how the game looks.
Ray tracing essentially concerns itself with lighting in games. Basically – when it’s on, it simulates much more realistic looking lighting.

Even though this could seem non-essential with the style of the game, using this feature in The Sims 5 would be a great move from Xbox.
Interiors, exteriors, houses, people and more would all come alive in a way previously unseen.
With all the excitement behind what The Sims 5 could look like on release, some fans were understandably dying to see their ideas come to life.
None apparently more so than YouTuber OriginZ, who posted an amazing fanmade trailer for The Sims 5.
Could this give us a glimpse at what could be? We’ll let you decide!

Xbox Series X Download
Evidently, this is completely new ground so we’re unable to predict when or how you’ll be able to download The Sims 5 on the brand new console.
However, the arrival of next-gen consoles may well mean that EA opts to bring the new Sims game to consoles earlier than usual.
This could mean that both next-gen and current-gen console owners may well be able to download The Sims 5 earlier than the usual wait post PC release!
