LOS ANGELES, CA – June 9th, 2014 - SteelSeries, one of the global leaders in premium gaming gear, today announced with Electronic Arts that they will produce The Sims™ 4 Gaming Headset, Mouse and QCK Mousepad. The Sims 4 Gaming Headset and Mouse have been uniquely designed to immerse players even deeper into the emotional life of their Sims, extending their experience beyond the computer screen. For the first time, players will see just what their Sim in The Sims 4 is feeling through an illuminated Plumbob that lights and pulsates according to the level of emotion their Sim is experiencing.
“The Sims franchise has some of the best fans in the world and we wanted to enhance their experience to allow them to immerse themselves even further into the game,” said Rachel Franklin, VP and General Manager of The Sims Studio. “The Sims 4 is centered around our new Sims and their emotions and we believe that players will feel even more connected with the game as their peripherals reflect the mood of their Sims.”
“Working with Electronic Arts has allowed us to introduce the passion of what we do as peripheral makers to The Sims community, which is one of the most enthusiastic and engaged audiences in gaming,” said Tino Soelberg, SteelSeries CTO. “We are thrilled to bring these truly unique peripherals to all types of players, from those experiencing The Sims for the first time to seasoned Simmers.”
