The Sims 4 to be revealed at Gamescom

The Sims 4 will probably definitely have lots of eyebrows

Known for being an amazing toilet-deleting, people-drowning life simulator, the next installment of The Sims, The Sims 4, notably missing from EA's E3 line up, will be revealed at Gamescom in Germany in August. It is sad but not that sad to note that I will in fact be seeing Knightmare Live at the Edinburgh Festival during this time, so I will not be able to attend the Sims 4 reveal but I will be able to yell SIMON SIDE STEP TO YOUR LEFT

Those wily Tweeters at EA put out a tweet this morning:

It's sort of a terrifying prospect that the game will take the stage to show itself off, but there you go.

Due for a 2014 release, The Sims 4 has a code in what i reluctantly call 'Simlish' (ugh) on the front page of the website, which lots of lovely forum-goers have been trying to translate. I have translated the secret code*:

"1) Thank you all so much for buying all those massively overpriced expansion packs. You thought you were being ripped off, but actually inside the code for these games is the secret location of your very own dragon egg. That's right! You too can burn the skin off your annoying kid brother and/or very annoying downstairs neighbour who makes a din at 3am. Quick! Go and find your DESTINY

2) Once you have awakened your dragon, please immediately proceed to Take Two's HQ and promptly burn it down.

3) No but honestly we are so grateful for you buying all that total arse. The Katy Perry expansion pack especially."

*This is not what the actual secret code says.

Gamescom takes place from the 21st to the 25th of August in Cologne, so if you want to see the Sims 4, head there. Alternatively, the internet will report that news for you so you can read about it in the comfort of your own home.
