Colour wheel, which was a much-loved feature in The Sims 3, is expected to make a comeback in The Sims 5. There will also be a multiplayer mode which will enable one to collaborate with friends. The Sims 4, which was launched almost a decade ago, continues to be popular. However, now players want to try their hands on the next game in the franchise.

Gaming enthusiasts would be aware of the fact that DRM is a technology that makes it difficult for one to pirate games. However, this technology has also been accused of bringing down the performance level of the games it is integrated into. Preservation also becomes difficult as one needs authentication to play the game. One loses access to the game when the authentication servers go down.

The Reddit user, after making the aforementioned claim, shared two screenshots that were supposed to be from the upcoming game. In the Sims 5 mobile build, the building’s editable part had been highlighted in a light purple color. The second image, meanwhile, featured the interiors of the building. Inside the building, one could see independent rooms that could be customized. The Reddit user also claimed that no Sims are featured in the playtest. The focus here, as per the Reddit user, is on the building.
