The Sims 4 getting pets with the Cats & Dogs expansion

The Sims 4 getting pets with the Cats & Dogs expansion

It’s the fourth expansion pack released this year, and it will include a variety of breeds of felines and pooches, and players can also use the Create a Pet tool to design a customized pet. Grant Rodiek, a producer for The Sims 4, says that they usually see an uptick in daily active users around launches such as these. It’s going to release a new Cats & Dogs expansion pack for the game on PC and Mac later this year. Customize furry friends’ coats with insane patterns or match the spots and stripes of an in-game pet to a real-life pet.

You can check the Cats & Dogs reveal trailer below. The Sims 4 is set to release on PS4 and Xbox One November 17, and is now available on PC, with the Cats & Dogs Expansion coming to that version on November 10.

The Cats & Dogs expansion pack for The Sims 4 is going to add a range of breeds of cats and dogs to the game. If that isn’t enough to truly make the pet feel special for your Sims, you’ll be able to add on outfits and accessories on top of your pet’s new dos.

Are your Sims in The Sims 4 feeling a little lonely?

The Sims 4: Cats & Dogs will also bring the new coastal location of Brindleton Bay to the game, where you’ll be able to go on scenic walks, walk your pets, and even find stray pets to take in as your own. For more information and to pre-order The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs, please visit www.TheSims.com. The Sims empowers players to play with life by creating virtual people, customizing their worlds and ruling their lives.

You have (not-so) patiently waited, Sims fans, and now you are being rewarded.

Tekken 7 should be Next on SteamOS after Street Fighter V

Tekken 7 should be Next on SteamOS after Street Fighter V

Avid SteamOS users just got some huge news. The next game that is set to come to this platform is Street Fighter V. There is no word on when this will be available, but it is officially coming. The console versions of this game have been announced for a February 16th, 2016 release date. However, now with this news, the world needs to see Tekken 7 get announced for the SteamOS.

WHAT THE STEAMOS IS

This platform is one of the most popular for gamers. It is a Linux-based operating system designed as the primary operating system for the Steam Machine video game consoles. The SteamOS allows users to stream games from their Windows, Linux, or Mac computers. The primary use of this operating system is to allow users to play PC games in their living rooms. This platform certainly makes it more convenient for PC gamers to play games in comfort.

STREET FIGHTER V ANNOUNCED FOR STEAMOS

As mentioned earlier, there is no official word on when this game will come to the SteamOS. However, we know that it is coming and we know of something else. Street Fighter V will support the Steam Controller. This controller is being played with the beta version currently. It is unaware if this version will feature all that the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Street Fighter V has, though. More details will surely be available in the coming months.

WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT TEKKEN 7

There are a few aspects that we do know about Tekken 7. The first is that this game will be released for the PlayStation 4. However, no official date on when that will happen has been announced. We also know that some sort of PlayStation VR support for the game is expected. There are also two known new features and that is Rage Art and Power Crush. Rage Art allows the user to execute several unblockable moves to their opponent. Power Crush allows the user to continue to attack even if being attacked.

TEKKEN 7 TO STEAMOS IS A POPULAR TOPIC

Ever since Tekken 7 was announced, people have wondered if it would come to the SteamOS. Many have talked about it and many say there are rumors about there being a PC version for Tekken 7 eventually. It should be next in line after Street Fighter V because those two games are two of the top fighting franchises in the world. The problem is is that these are just rumors and no word has actually surfaced yet. One thing is for sure, Tekken 7 needs to be on the SteamOS.

TEKKEN 7 CAN’T BE OUTMATCHED BY STREET FIGHTER V

As mentioned earlier, Tekken 7 and Street Fighter V are two of the top fighting game franchises of all-time. With this being said, Tekken can not allow Street Fighter to get an advantage. With both of their new games coming soon, competition between Capcom and Bandai Namco Entertainment will be high. If Bandai Namco does not find a way to get the game to the SteamOS, Capcom could hold the advantage.

PATIENCE A VIRTUE FOR TEKKEN 7

All I can say is have patience Tekken and Steam fans. Those who have a PS4 do not have to worry because the game has already been announced for that system. However, SteamOS fans need to keep hoping and praying that this game eventually gets released for it. Again, rumors are running across the internet and hopefully the people know what they are talking about. However, we will have to wait and see for any official announcement.
