New The Sims Mobile game launched on Android and iOS

New The Sims Mobile game launched on Android and iOS
Last year, Electronic Arts announced it will launch a brand new Sims mobile game, but it did not provide any ETAs. The good news is you can now download The Sims Mobile on your Android or iOS device for free. Unfortunately, the game is literally “clogged” with in-app purchases ranging from $2.99 to no less than $99.99 per item.

Even though the game received positive feedback after being soft-launched in 2017, you need to be very careful at how you handle the in-app purchase aspect. On the bright side, EA offers new players three in-game items for free to celebrate the worldwide launch of the game.

If you've ever played a Sims game before, this one should feel familiar. The Sims Mobile allows players to build and customize their own Sims, as well as shape their lifestyle, including careers and hobbies.

Also, you'll be able to play together with other players' Sims by hosting and attending parties. EA is also running daily events that players can attend such as Speed Dating in the Park or the Market Square Music Festival. These sound like fun, right?

Once again, EA wastes an opportunity to make a good game and just charge $10 flat. Disgusting.

They'll make way more money with the IAP model than a pre-pay model. It sucks for the customer, but it's only about what's good for the business.

I've been playing for about a month and I haven't really needed to buy anything to advance in the game. So it's really not that bad. But as for the game, it gets repetitive pretty fast.

The thing I liked the most about The Sims was building and decorating the houses, and that's one big flaw of these mobile versions, you don't have that freedom.
