“Our team has been working hard to develop The Sims 4 Cats &
Dogs and The Sims 4 on consoles, and we’re proud to offer
rich and rewarding experiences across multiple platforms to our
incredible community,” said Maxis General Manager, Joe Nickolls.
“Providing fans with a variety of entry points into The Sims
universe is a huge priority for us, and we’re optimistic for the
opportunities it provides us to grow.”
With The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs, players can design their perfect
pet with unique features and personalities, while discovering new
activities to enjoy in the charming coastal shores of Brindleton Bay.
“We know how much the community loves their real-life cats and dogs, and
we’re so happy they can now bring their beloved four-legged companions
into their Sims’ world,” said Lyndsay Pearson, Executive Producer on The

Sims installment, and we’re so excited to finally bring these lovable
friends into The Sims 4.”

and distinct pets ever, choosing from a wide variety of cat and
dog breeds (or a mix), to give each pet their own unique look. Players

or directly paint and manipulate their appearance with spots, stripes
and details that make each pet truly stand out from the rest.
