EA to showcase The Sims 4 at Gamescom this August

The Sims 4, the forthcoming installment in Electronic Arts' life simulation series, will be showcased at Gamescom this August, according to a tweet today from the official Sims 3 Twitter account.

The Sims 4 will make its appearance on the EA stage, the tweet revealed. EA announced The Sims 4 last month on its official blog, writing that it's headed to Windows PC and Mac in 2014. A representative for developer Maxis said in a subsequent conference call that the next entry will return the game to its "roots."

Gamescom 2013 will take place Aug. 21-15 in Cologne, Germany, and Polygon will be there to bring you all the news from EA, Nintendo, Microsoft, Bethesda and more.
