The Sims Stories are specially designed to run on laptops, and will feature the usual open-ended gameplay.
The first of the new games, The Sims Life Stories, introduces an all-new Story Mode with two stories that follow the lives of 'Riley Harlow' and 'Vincent Moore', two very different characters who have reached similar crossroads in their love lives.
A comic romantic plot guides players through 12 chapters involving "unique and entertaining storylines filled with romance, intrigue and dramatic twists".
"Everyone loves a good story, and The Sims Life Stories gives players two wonderful romantic comedies to enjoy," said Rod Humble, vice president at EA and head of studio for The Sims Division.
"For those who are interested in The Sims, The Sims Stories are accessible and fun for everyone."
The hugely popular Sims franchise has been translated into 22 languages and has sold more than 70 million games around the world.
