When I mention The Sims, there is no doubt in my mind that you are familiar with the cute, and quite frankly, adorable game. It does have some pretty sinister undertones, like the frequent threat of death lingering ‘round the corner, and having complete responsibility for the lives of the precious little souls resting in your hands. Now, should you feel the need to do so, the game offers up a whole bunch of hilarious, useful and to be honest, rather strange The Sims 4 cheat codes. Choose to use these how you like… Make your Sims rich, happy and prosperous or perhaps bully them into damnation with your new-found powers, while making them as miserable as you possibly can. We won’t judge here at Starstruck!
We’re here to list all things cheat related and give you all the cheaty knowledge you’ll ever need in Sims 4. That doesn’t exclude you, console players, either, especially after the release of Sims 4 in the Playstation Plus Lineup. Keep on reading and keep a pen and paper handy because there are some real ‘good’ ns’.
