Electronic Arts and Maxis developed The Sims 4 is a game teeming with activity with people from all walks of life.
The game always focuses on allowing you to live as you like and represent a large community like no other game you could play. Be it living minimal, going for a beach activity or being a proud member of the LGBT community, it allows you to customize and showcase your avatar however you please.
On par with what they have been doing for years now, The Sims 4 players are coming together for a virtual march. Owing to the pandemic situation around the globe, it is not possible to hold a real-life procession. The hashtag #Pride2020 is trending on Twitter as they host a large march online which was streamed live on Twitch so that gamers from all over the world could participate and showcase their encouragement.

The pandemic situation and the concept of social distancing has postponed almost every other event to the virtual world. When Apple and Google are hosting their events online without the presence of any developers or media, it is no wonder events, festivals and things like the pride march has also been moved online. It might take months before things return back to normal but the power of the internet and games like Sims 4 allow people to express themselves better, unlike any other platform.
We wanted to let you know that you can express yourself how you want to be and honor our history, each other. People will and should be proud of what you are, be it a man, woman or both because being proud is what matters the most, said EA in their statement. The official Twitter video has also been included to give you an idea of what to expect and the link to watch the parade which was hosted on Twitch for gamers. This is yet another reason to celebrate your favorite game and be part of something huge that the world adores.
