Maxis has said that The Sims 4 will run better on lower end machines than its predecessor, providing good news for those of us with embarrassingly crap PCs.
Producer Ryan Vaughn spoke to Digital Spy and said "We're really excited to say that players on lower end machines are going to have a much better experience on The Sims 4 than they did with The Sims 3."
He said that Maxis is aware that, with a player-base as wide as that enjoyed by The Sims series, people with a broad range of machines will want to play the fourth instalment. The aim is for the "gameplay [to be] just as much fun regardless of what spec you're playing on."
The Sims 4 will be published by EA on PC and Mac in 2014. There's no word on if it'll be making its way to consoles.
