How well does The Sims 4 run on Windows 10?
Windows is constantly updating its system, big version came like Windows 7, Windows 8, 8.1, and today is the launch of their new and free update, Windows 10. And since it’s free, you just want to update, but then you ask yourself… is it compatible with my favorite game?
The answer is Yes, and a big YES.
Windows 10 + The Sims 4
I’ve been using Windows 10 for about a month now, the Technical Preview helped me to evaluate how well does the game play. It just works, I don’t think anyone would see any difference, my game didn’t crash more than it used to, (it happened once, and I was using an older mod not updated for a Sims 4 game update) and I was happy with the new feature Windows 10 brings to games, (you can now record and take screenshots of your gameplay by pressing Windows key + G ). After the update, the only thing you should do is: Go into your game settings and set everything back to your usual graphics, mouse mode etc. because the update resets your game settings to default. I also (and I’m not the only one as I read) noticed that the game launches faster and is faster in loading screens. That is a real game changer for me and I think it is for you too.
Windows 10 + Games
Like I said, Windows 10 is also directly for gamers. You’ve got an Xbox One ? You’ll love Windows 10. You play with advanced graphic games using DirectX ? You’ll Love Windows 10 and DirectX12. You can even record and take screenshots of your gameplay by pressing [ Windows Key + G ]. Also, The Sims 3, The Sims 2 an The Sims Medieval run just like before on Windows 10.
Finally, should you update? I think you can answer that by yourself. You’ll get the same performance and maybe even better. Ans since it’s free, why not ? The Start menu is back. There’s Cortana and a new Task View mode and on and on… Go check out Windows’ website to see how to install Windows 10 and what it brings to your computer when you upgrade.
