IGN has updated with a new video (posted in a newspost below this one), 3 screenshots and another new preview for the game.

Ben Bell, the executive producer for the game, also explained how the AI powers the personalities of the sims that are not in your household or family. These are basically the “extras” that populate the town. “The other sims have their own personality traits. And then they have relationships. So the combination of relationship and traits is what is driving their autonomy. They also have the same kinds of needs as your sims, so they also need to eat and sleep, pee and socialize, so they’re all trying to satisfy those things,” he said. “And at the same time, we’re trying to keep them clustered around where you are, too. So if you’re spending a lot of the time at the park the other sims are going to come down to the park.”
