Following on from yesterday's reveal
of a new gameplay video for The Sims 4, it seems a new subscription-based service has been subsequently spotted hidden in the 20-minute long gameplay, offering members exclusive items and early access to new content.
The service, which EA is calling The Sims 4 Premium, appears upon entering the gallery, an in-game area that lets players share content with each other. An advertisement pops up at 13:26 in the video below, and reads, "Become a Premium member to get early access to 3 new packs, with exclusive items. Your Sims can throw a spooky costume party, camp in the great outdoors, and toast to the new year in style."
Currently it is unclear just how much the service will cost, however publisher Electronic Arts isn't new to subscription-based models with the latest Battlefield titles sharing a "Premium" subscription service. This included early access to map packs and exclusive content like knives, achievements and more. Check it out below to see it in action.
