The release of the Sims 4 is less than a month away, and EA is giving us the chance to get ahead of the game in the Create-A-Sim Mode, as this new Gamescom trailer so politely tells us.

The trailer focuses completely on Create-A-Sim, showing us a plethora of different Sim types that we can create with a few clicks. Everything from the hotheaded guy from the E3 demo to a gluttonous luchador, the only thing that seems to limit Create-A-Sim is the player's imagination. The trailer also dives into choosing each Sim's walking style as well as setting personality traits to give them the exact persona you want them to have.

Best of all, the trailer ends with a link to EA Origin's demos page, where we can download the Sims 4 Create-A-Sim demo for free right now and start creating our Sims in preparation for the launch of the game. Think of it as a unique way to pre-load the game: with all of your Sims created and ready to go, all you'll have to do is install the game and be on your way to creating your own Sims universe.

The Sims 4 launches Sept 2 on the PC.
