Sign up for the Playtest!
The team at Maxis has been hard at work developing new innovations for The Sims. You’re invited to test out a pre-alpha experience for Project Rene. We’re looking to make this the best experience possible, and we can’t wait to get your feedback and hear your what you think.
This playtest will focus primarily on our new object customization tool currently called “Workshop.” This tool is meant to help you customize objects to decorate an apartment. We encourage you to share your creations as well as download what other players have made. And to experience everything this playtest has to offer, remember that you can play with your friends!
Please note that this early experience is only one aspect of what Project Rene will grow to be.
We encourage you to join sessions with your friends and/or join the private playtest Discord (invitation to follow) to find new friends to play with. As a trusted, Community Playtesting member, you are eligible to invite up to 3 friends to sign up for this playtest. More information and instructions are included in the registration form.
You can sign up for EA Playtesting by visiting our “How to become a Playtester“, which includes all the details you need to know about location, compensation, website links and more. Alternatively, you can visit the EA Playtesting website directly.
Project Rene is somewhat covered in mystery, with EA not revealing much about what the game has to offer. However, Insider Gaming will try our best to get the scoop next week.
