The Sims 5, currently known as Project Rene, was revealed earlier this month and will be a “next-generation Sims game and creation platform.” Players will be able to start testing the game as early as this month, and if you want to be one of the participants, here’s everything you need to know about how to sign up for The Sims 5 PC playtest.
How to sign up for The Sims 5 playtest on PC
To sign up for The Sims 5 playtest on PC, players must sign up for EA Playtesting:
- Go to the EA playtesting website.
- Click the Become a Play Tester button.
- Log in to your EA account or create a new account if you don’t have one already.
Developer Maxis sent out emails inviting EA playtesters to test the pre-alpha experience for Project Rene. Those who received these emails will receive an invitation to the private Discord playtest. Players who are selected for playtesting are allowed to invite up to 3 friends to join them in The Sims 5.
The playtest will begin on October 25, 2022 and will focus on a new item customization tool called “Workshop”. This tool will let players customize items that they can then use to decorate their apartments before sharing them. Other players’ creations can also be downloaded to be used in your own apartment as well.
