EA: thanks to SimCity the Sims 4 can be played offline

SimCity was a good game but was held back due it always online requirement. EA faced a severe backlash for it.

However, if the servers worked as advertised, EA wouldn’t had faced such backlash. But, all of that has resulted in good things for Sims 4.

According to EA, they listened to player feed back from Sim City and has decided that Sims 4 singleplayer campaign will be offline.

In the last few months, we have started making changes to the business practices that gamers clearly don’t like. In the spring, we dropped our online pass program for consoles – both next-generation and current-generation.

We listened to the feedback on SimCity and decided that The Sims 4 would be built as a single-player, offline experience. We announced some new intellectual properties at E3 and will unveil more new games in the months ahead.

It seems that EA learned its lesson.
