The upcoming installment of the ever-popular Sims franchise, Sims 5, from developer Maxis has been leaked online. The Sims 5 playtest build leak that was uploaded online contained important game files and a few details of the coming title. Fans are very excited to see even the pre-released version because the files spread online contained both PC and Android applications.

Sims 5, codenamed Project Rene, was announced on the 18th of October 2022 by developer Maxis and publisher Electronic Arts. The mobile version was confirmed after a playtest for Project Rene took place where testers confined the mobile version. However, there is no information regarding the launch of the game. Apart from the small details that surfaced since the game was announced, we do not know much about the game.

What we got to know from the playtest build leak is that Sims 5 will use Denuvo DRM to keep the title safe from piracy. Besides, Maxis is using Unreal Engine for the game, making a shift from Frostbite engine. But for mobile gamers, the surprise is at the highest. The leaked builds show an Android version alongside the PC version. This means that Maxis is well determined to push mobile gamers into this renowned life-simulation series. Business is also a key factor here as after making the Sims 4 free-to-play, the companies behind the upcoming edition will surely want to make a whopping sum of money. As the mobile gaming industry is a big market, you just cannot exclude it from your list.

Sims 5 will be free to play with paid DLCs

As EA will be using Denuvo DRM to protect the title while Maxis took a shift to the Unreal Engine, it is evident that a free-to-play model won’t affect them much from making money. Because there will be a lot of DLCs that players will need to pay to use. The game will support cross-platform play. However, Sims 5 playtest build leak didn’t contain any information regarding the release date.

The last edition of this popular series was released back in 2014. Since then, the developers continued to provide updates to the game but were far away from making a sequel. However, the much-anticipated title is far away from release and also it is not clear whether the leaked build is recent or from an old update. While we don’t know these details, it is wise to wait for information from the connected authorities.
