This is a selected list of massively multiplayer online role-playing games.
MMORPGs are large multi-user games that take place in perpetual online worlds with a great number of other players.
The game, like most of the series, does not have a defined final goal; gameplay is nonlinear.
The Create-a-Sim and Build Mode tools have been redesigned to allow more versatility when creating game content.
Emotional state plays a larger role in game play than in previous games in the series, with effects on social interaction, user interface, and personality.
To date EA has released four expansion packs, with the most recent (Cats & Dogs) being released in November 2017.
There have also been several "game packs" released, including Parenthood which allows the players to shape the characters' children and teenagers as they go through life, as well as free updates that include major changes such as the addition of a toddler life stage.
