Electronic Arts continues to focus on "The Sims 4" and offer added content via DLC, a sign that "The Sims 5" is pretty far off. While some are satisfied with the idea, the fact remains that a new game is long overdue.

With new DLCs expected to come out in the next couple of months, perhaps a mobile version of the life-simulation game can cover up for the meantime with "The Sims Mobile." With most folks into the mobile gaming hoopla, the ability to play the game anywhere and on iOS or Android devices may do, at least for now.

For those who have been playing "The Sims" on their mobile devices, "The Sims Mobile" may be mistaken for the current one available - "The Sims Free Play." "The Sims Mobile" is entirely different and is a game offering that has yet to become available.

The new iteration of "The Sims" will be available for both iOS and Android devices as well, a free-to-play game created from scratch with an emphasis on designing new characters and decorating the virtual world surroundings.

"The Sims Mobile" tries to steer away from the recurring and redundant gameplay of EA’s famed life-simulation installments, backed by a social system offering new dialogues for play “Sims” to explore new relationships, Attack of the Fan Boy reports.

While most may have tried their skill on building relationships with "The Sims" on non-playing characters, "The Sims Mobile" takes it to another level by giving games the opportunity to host and interact with actual online users.

As with prior "The Sims" installments, the key is building the ideal "Sim" using the game’s character creation tool. The feature has been improved on the upcoming mobile installment and such includes being able to use new hairstyles, outfits and choosing new career paths.

There is also a new "Family Tree System" on "The Sims Mobile," a gateway to guide descendants or offsprings to follow the same or even do better. So if a "Sims" player chooses to be a lawyer, his son could improve on that and move up to be a judge. There are plenty of possibilities depending on what profession a player chooses.

Seeing how EA game developers have packed quite a lot of features into "The Sims Mobile," it will be interesting how gamers will accept it. Though some are still looking for a new desktop game installment successor, a positive way to look at "The Sims Mobile" is that it may be a sign of things to come.
