The Sims 4’s Willow Creek, Loading and Story Progression Explained by Maxis
Maxis has revealed a lot of information regarding its upcoming title, The Sims 4 including details of the game’s new world Willow Creek, loading screen and story progression.
Willow Creek which is inspired by New Orleans is one of the first game worlds revealed so far. The city features a total of six neighborhoods and players can have access to only one neighborhood and at a time.
Those who are into the whole family business in Sims games will have to try for a baby if they want to retain the family name and keep the property in the family, otherwise their Sims will die and other town folks will take over the belongings.

The Public Spaces in the game are open areas of the world accessible to all which will be fully loaded at all times and players can move freely through them.
According to SimsVIP players will encounter loading screens when moving from world to world, from neighbourhood to neighbourhood, from lot to lot, when switching between Sims on different lots, and when switching from a Public Space to an inactive lot (but not from a Public Space to an active lot).
In The Sims 4, the player’s Sims are not the only ones who can age instead players will have the option to turn on aging for other citizens of the world as well.
The Sims 4 is set to release on PC in September.
