The Sims Team has released their The Sims Skill on all Amazon Alexa devices – including the Alexa App that can be downloaded for iOS and Android smartphones. Check out what they have to say about the new release in their official blog!
If you’re reading this, chances are you like playing The Sims™ on your PC, Mac, console, or mobile device. But what if we told you there’s another way to have fun with the franchise?
We’ve teamed up with Amazon to create a new way to experience The Sims, Alexa-style. Basically, now you can bug your whole household with your love for The Sims. Or, they can get in on the action. Either way, this is gonna be good. This is a worldwide release, in five variants of English (Australia, Canada, India, US, and UK).
With The Sims’ Alexa Skill, you’ll be able to interact with three sweet features.
- How about some tunes? We’ve queued up over seven hours of music from The Sims’ franchise for your listening pleasure. That’s 140 songs! And let us be the first to say, yes, that does include the ever-popular music from The Sims 3.
- Let’s talk trivia. Nothing says “I’m addicted to my favorite video game” like schooling all of your loved ones in a friendly game of over 200 Sim-related, brain-busting questions. You can play solo or with up to four players in beginning, casual, or challenge mode.
- You can also learn fun facts about The Sims. Do you know when the first The Sims game was published, or what inspired the original game? Alexa will teach you!
Make The Sims a part of your Alexa-ready home right now! All you have to do is have an Amazon-enabled device, then say “Alexa, play The Sims!” We hope you enjoy!
But Wait, There’s More!
Just because the Alexa Skill is IRL doesn’t mean your Sims can’t enjoy a futuristic digital personal assistant (say that three times fast). We’d also like to introduce Lin-Z, available in The Sims 4 on PC and Mac right now!*
Here’s what Lin-Z can do for your Sims:
Lin-Z mimics a stereo system. Embarrassing dance solo not included.
Sims can choose to test their knowledge. The higher their Logic skill, the more likely your Sim will be to answer trivia questions correctly.
Pizza, maid service, gardening service, or repair service. Yay, stuff!
Sims can ask for a joke and Sims near Lin-Z will react to it. Lolz.
You know, turning lights on, turning lights off. It’s not rocket science, folks.
