Something new is coming to console, and it’s covered in fur! The Sims™ 4 Cats & Dogs* will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on July 31, 2018. Before you cough up any hairballs, we’d like to give you a preview of what to expect from this massively cute pack. We're also including some awesome updates for Xbox One players below. You can also pre-order here.
Create-A-Pet is a tool that gives you tons of customization options to create your dream pet. You can search for a seemingly-endless amount of cat and dog breeds or mix any two breeds to create the perfect mutt. If those tools aren’t enough to get a hair-raising result, try the painting feature! Whether you’re adding a few spots, a bright color to the nose, or using stencils to create more complicated patterns, customizing your pets is fun and simple. Plus, drumroll please. . . we have costumes for cats and dogs! What’s that you say? You want your pup to go swimming while dressed as a shark? Your wish is our command, along with so many more adorable scenarios!
Traits, Training, and Tons of Fun
Once your pet is created and you enter live mode, you’ll see that these are the most expressive, interesting, and distinctive pets we’ve ever made. Traits make every pet an individual, but only the most dedicated owners will recognize their pets’ fears, desires, and more. Cats will hide from dogs by standing on the fridge, peering down at their owners. Devoted dog lovers can train their fur babies to perform a series of increasingly complicated tricks, or even walk them around the new world of Brindleton Bay to chase birds and stretch their legs. Now that’s a good boy!
Prescriptions for Poodles and Persians
Once you have your puppy trained and the cat feeder all programmed (one less thing to worry about, believe us), have your Sims purchase the local Veterinarian practice to start work on Monday. Yes, that’s right! You can own a Vet Clinic, hire a smart staff, diagnose illnesses, and perform surgeries to improve the wellness of the neighborhood’s pets (and earn a few Simoleons).
Furry friends, an awesome career, and a new world are coming your way on Xbox One and PlayStation 4! Whether you already have a special pet in your life or not, The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs is a special way to show your love for all things fuzzy. Plus, let’s be honest, it’s a lot less messy than real life. What stories will you tell with your Sims and their new four-legged friends?
