New Details on Sims 5 Project Rene

In October 2022, EA made an exciting announcement about Project Rene, also known as The Sims 5.

They shared this news during their Sims Summit Stream Event, where they also mentioned that basic playtesting had already begun.

It’s great to see the progress they’re making! Throughout the stream, we had the opportunity to witness the playtest in action, providing fans with an exclusive glimpse into the fascinating process of furnishing and customizing an apartment.

From the stream, we learned about some exciting updates such as improved lighting technology, expanded customization options in Create-A-Sim, and the major announcement that the game will support cross-play and be accessible on mobile devices.

About a month ago, a Reddit user by the name of Gtorrnet shared some new details regarding the October/November playtest. These details included two pieces of important information.

To start, it’s worth noting that the game has been shifted to the Unreal Engine, which is quite intriguing. Unreal is renowned for its incredibly lifelike and intricate graphics.

However, it seems a bit excessive considering that The Sims 5 is being designed to run smoothly even on mobile devices.

Upon examining the intricate details of the objects from the Apartment playtest, it becomes evident that Unreal is an excellent choice in this scenario.

We were informed of a second, more contentious piece of information regarding the game: the inclusion of Denuvo DRM.

DRMs are commonly employed as a measure against piracy, but they often receive criticism from players due to their resource-intensive nature, restrictions on program installations, and a track record of potentially installing harmful software on devices.

In 2008, EA received significant criticism for including the SecuROM DRM with their game Spore.

The developer has been utilizing Denuvo since 2014, although it is not included in The Sims 4 as far as we know.

The Mobile Alpha Sims 5 Leaks

In the leaked post, a link to the mobile version of the playtest was shared. However, it seems that you need authorization from EA in order to access it.

The author successfully downloaded and launched the utility, ensuring the safety of your devices. However, as depicted in the screenshot above, they encountered difficulty connecting to the playtest.

Yesterday, a Reddit user named DzXAnt22 kindly shared additional details they were able to extract from the leaked playtest build.

These findings provide us with some insights into the potential appearance of the game’s map. Based on DzXAnt22’s explanation, the image above shows the complete map, and the red area represents the playable space.

The blue line represents a river that runs along the southern edge of the playable area. Additional noteworthy data they were able to extract:

  • No travel-related icons or references to traveling were found, indicating that The Sims 5 may be an open world game without the need for a traveling mechanic.
  • The game employed LOD (levels of detail) and Asset Streaming (items load in when necessary) to ensure a smooth performance, achieving a stable 30 FPS (frames per second) even on older phones that are 5+ years old. Mobile games usually operate at a frame rate of 30-60 FPS.
  • According to some images discovered during their investigation, it seems that the leaked world map is designed to resemble the actual city of Paris, France.

Take a look at the images above and you’ll see that the on-screen map adjusts as the player moves, which adds weight to the notion that the red area on the full map is where the gameplay takes place.

Another Reddit user, Vegetable_Ear_4141, has shared multiple posts about The Sims 5 leaks, including what could be the first release of map images.

They have also provided other intriguing details worth checking out. This model of a sim is quite impressive. It provides us with a glimpse into the art style and the various customization options available.

Take note of the different colors on the eyelids/eyelashes, which hint at the possibility of having different color channels for customization.

Vegetable_Ear_4141 kindly provided additional information about location names, the range of emotions your sim can experience, and some details about the voice acting.

Other Possible Sims 5 Character Leaks

The image above was shared on Reddit by user Sincerely-A earlier this month, suggesting that it may be a leak of the upcoming characters.

Unfortunately, they did not provide any source information for this image, so we have to approach it with caution.

There is a chance that the character style may have evolved since the leaked playtest, but without concrete evidence, we should view this as mere speculation.

Recently, Kate Gorman, formerly the VP for The Sims Mobile, was announced as the new VP & GM of the game franchise.

Is it possible that The Sims 5 might embrace a design that is more centered around mobile apps? We’ll have to wait and see.

Final Words

March 2024 has brought some exciting news regarding the leaks for Project Rene/The Sims 5!

We have a wealth of information about the playable map area, specifically regarding its appearance and location, at least for an earlier version of the game’s test build.

There has been a recent change in leadership for The Sims, which may result in significant shifts between this leak and the final game.

However, we remain optimistic that these changes will bring positive outcomes.

We are excited about the information we have obtained through dataminers and leaks, and we will continue to provide you with updates as more details become available.
