The Sims 4 is set to launch later this year for PC and Mac- as the fourth installment in Maxis’s amazing simulation franchise, great things are expected from it. At the same time, however, Maxis’s last release was the disastrous SimCity last year- that, combined with the fact that we simply have not seen much of Sims 4 yet, has been worrying some.

Well, no need to! Maxis talked about The Sims 4 and the changes they are implementing to the game at a panel at GDC, and so far, things look rather peachy.

“When we looked at the sims and tried to decide what would make them feel more natural and more believable, one thing that we realized is that in the real world, people do things at the same time all the time,” Ingebretson said. “For instance, people stand around in a bar drinking drinks, sitting down. Sometimes people will stand and sit and talk to each other. It seems very natural when characters in a game can multitask.”

“It also turns out that it’s in some ways realistic,” he continued. “In the real world, people’s brains work this way. There’s a lot of psychological research that shows people multitask by switching between different things.”

This makes sense, and goes towards Maxis’s stated goal of making The Sims 4 feel like the most natural and organic entry in the franchise yet. Hopefully, the fourth entry continues the tradition of addictive awesomeness the series is known for.

    I don’t get it is this game just going to be about being able to eat and watch tv at the same time, why aren’t we being told anything else. This is literally the only thing EA has ever told us, and they’ve been saying the same thing since August.

    Wow, EA most having something AMAZING in the game that they don’t want us to hear about yet, because they haven’t told us a damn thing about this game. For godsake, the game is available for pre-order and we don’t even have an offical trailer yet? This is the same thing we heard last August…with nothing else new. No new pictures or anything. While I thought this game was mediocre, at this point in the Sims 3 development we had new information every month.
