Sims 4 to Implement First-Person Perspective

Beware of motion sickness.

Soon, Sims fans will no longer have to settle for the unrealistic depictions of being a towering visual entity, floating above your denizens in an all-powerful dominion. An upcoming patch will introduce a first-person perspective.

Revealed in the most recent Maxis Monthly, a recurring live stream centered around Sims games and content, the Sims 4 will be given the option to perceive the game from the perspective of their sims. It originated as a joke by one of the game's producers, and now It'll be made available in the game's next update. Players will be able to switch between first-person mode and regular camera by pressing Shift + Tab.

Global community manager SimGuru Kate and Maxis build engineer Steve Lansing spoke about the various possibilities the new camera perspective will offer. Players who focus on house building can showcase "in-person" house tours, while storytelling Sims players can take advantage of new angles.

This has also brought into question the potentially lewd nature it provides. While the base game is censored in each appropriate regard, there are plenty of mods out there that bring a definite 18+ age rating to the game and its content. How many minutes until after the patch goes live will it be before there's a video online of a Mila Kunis lookalike sim taking a bath?

The first person patch, which will also come with a new career track and more terrain modification tools, will release on November 13 at 1 PM ET at no cost.
