The Sims 4's Build Mode lets you click, drag and construct

A video released today for The Sims 4 shows the ease with which you can construct buildings using the upcoming Mac and Windows PC game's Build Mode.

Press play above to see the ease with which you can pinch, squeeze and stretch The Sims 4's architecture to make it your own. Designed to make construction easy, Build Mode will let players add fully furnished rooms, resize them and even move entire buildings, often just by clicking and dragging.

The Sims 4, which was delayed last October, is scheduled to launch by October 2014. For more on the game, be sure to read our coverage of software engineer Peter Ingebretson's GDC 2014 panel, in which he discussed sims' multitasking capabilities.
