The Sims 4 Turns Into Esports TV Show
The Sims 4 is not necessarily a game that makes you think of Esport. A life simulation as a competitive highlight and on TV on top of that? With the format Die Sims Spark'd, the series will soon make it onto the screens as an esports reality TV show. Why? Why not at all!
You are a fan of reality TV shows AND like to play The Sims 4? Then we have good news for you: Eleague and Buzzfeed Multiplayer have announced The Sims Spark'd - a show where reality TV meets The Sims 4 and esports. Yes, we looked as confused at first as you did.
The Sims Spark'd
Since 2014, the Sims have been scurrying across the screens in the latest version of the life simulation and are still enjoying huge popularity. What more could be done than to turn the concept into a reality TV show with esports elements?
This is exactly the idea behind The Sims Spark'd. A show that, according to its creators, is supposed to redefine reality TV. Twelve participants compete in this new TV show to create characters, worlds, and stories in The Sims 4 in various challenges under time pressure.
The creations that impress the jury move on to the next round. Whoever wins, in the end, secures the prize money of $100,000. And the best part? All of us can be there and cheer. Among the participants are YouTubers and Streamers Plumbella and The EnglishSimmer, among the most famous content creators in the Sims community.
