Computer game giant The Sims has come out in support of Gay Pride Month.

With a post on its official Twitter account, the game’s team shared an image depicting the range of relationships available in the title, including same-sex marriage.

‘Be proud in The Sims 4,’ the message said.

EA has included same-sex relationships in the series ever since the first game in 2000.

In The Sims 3, published in 2009, it allowed all adult characters to enter relationships and marriages of any kind.

This liberal view earned The Sims 4 an adults-only rating In Russia for its depiction of same-sex relationships.

Other games have been condemned for not including the option to be gay, such as with Nintendo’s Tomodachi Life.

The franchise has sold more than 175 million copies worldwide.
