Maxis has announced the fourth installment in The Sims series. It is due to launch on Windows and Mac in 2014.

Fortunately, Maxis has confirmed that The Sims 4 will be available offline.

The Sims 4 celebrates the heart and soul of the Sims themselves, giving players a deeper connection with the most expressive, surprising and charming Sims ever in this single-player offline experience.

Neither EA nor Maxis has revealed whether players would need to have the Origin client installed but it is quite likely. The publisher has promised to released more information about The Sims 4 later today.  They will also most probably showcase the game at the Electronic Entertainment Expo later this year.
