The Sims Player Wants a Life is Strange: True Colors Crossover

A player of The Sims has called for the next game in the life simulation series to take inspiration from Life is Strange: True Colors. Life is Strange: True Colors released earlier this year to critical acclaim, introducing new protagonist Alex Chen who must navigate life with the burden of her psychic power of empathy.

The Sims and Life is Strange series are very different in their stories, genres, and executions, but both have a focus on people and the world they live in. However, unlike True Colors, The Sims 4 offers more cartoon-like graphics and less dynamic neighborhoods. The Sims games have advanced over the years since the first launched in 2000, but the latest game in the series, The Sims 4, is still very much lacking in lots of areas, including its world design and graphics. The Sims 4 is now seven years old, and while the release continues to grow with expansions and new game content, there are countless improvements that fans are hoping to see in The Sims 5.

Redditor and Sims player souphaver is "manifesting" a new Sims game that would take inspiration from Life is Strange: True Colors. The latest Life is Strange takes place in the fictional Colorado town of Haven Springs, in a semi-open-world with realistic graphics that the user believes could lay the groundwork for a similar neighborhood in The Sims 5. Sharing some in-game images from True Colors, souphaver explains in their Reddit post:

"There's no reason The Sims 5 worlds can't look like (a less detailed) Haven Springs. I really hope they bring back the ability to create your own world and neighborhoods. Having an open world with smaller active neighborhood sections, so that the whole world doesn't have to load at the same time, would be perfect. Being able to create a main street like this would add so much life to the game."

The post has received over 5,000 upvotes at the time of writing, with Simmers also sharing their hopes for more realistic and dynamic worlds for The Sims 5.

The thriving world of Life is Strange: True Colors contrasts quite heavily with The Sims 4. Unlike The Sims 3, The Sims 4 has dropped open-world gameplay in favor of different visitable areas and neighborhoods that require players to sit through a loading screen. This has been a point of contention for Simmers for a while, and it's one of the many features fans are hoping is scrapped for The Sims 5. Many players also feel that Sims 4 locations don't feel as alive as they could, with many preferring the world design and gameplay elements of The Sims 3.

EA is seemingly doubling down on The Sims 4, steadily releasing new DLC and expansions with no sign of a sequel in sight. Purchasing all of The Sims 4 expansions and additional content is pricey, pulling in money for EA without the development team needing to create a whole new game from the ground up. It's possible that The Sims 4 could still have years ahead of it, with The Sims 5 maybe not on the cards for while.
