The Sims 5 Pre-Release PC Build Has Been Leaked Online

It appears that a pre-release PC build for The Sims 5 has been leaked online. Yeap, this is the real deal. Both PC and Android builds of this upcoming social game are circulating on the Internet as we speak.

According to some reports, the pre-release PC build uses the Denuvo anti-tamper tech. This falls in line with what EA has been doing with its latest PC releases.

Do also note that I’m using the name The Sims 5 loosely here. EA has not revealed its exact title. For all we know, it may be called something completely different.

What’s interesting here is that this leak has revealed the engine that Maxis will be using. Instead of using Frostbite, this new The Sims game will be powered by Unreal Engine. However, we don’t know whether it will be UE4 or UE5.

The Sims 5 will be a free-to-play game. So, my guess is that EA will use Denuvo in order to “protect” its paid expansions and DLCs.

Our last article about this new The Sims game was in November 2022. Back then, some pre-alpha off-camera screenshots were leaked. That was one month after EA officially revealed The Sims 5. Codenamed Project Rene, this new The Sims game promises to stay true to what The Sims has always been. Additionally, it will push to evolve how those Sims think and behave.

As always, we won’t allow any links to the leaked PC build. So yeah, don’t bother sharing any links in the Comment section. Be also careful with what you’ll be downloading as there will be numerous fake torrents out there, filled with viruses.

There is currently no ETA on when The Sims 5 will come out. Naturally, though, we’ll be sure to keep you posted.

Stay tuned for more!
