The Sims 4 Will Be Getting Free Updates Adding Pools, Star Wars Costumes & More
"New Content Is Being Added To The Sims 4 In Free Monthly Updates"
EA has announced
that The Sims 4
will be receiving some new content in some upcoming updates over the next few months. This content will include pools and ghosts. These features were missing from the game at launch and caused some controversy
months ago, due to their absence. EA explained
they had received lots of "feedback" since the game launched a month ago and that they had "...designed The Sims 4
to be a live service," which they can "...continually evolve , add new content, and incorporate as much of your feedback as possible."
The first update goes live today, October 1st. "The October Update" will bring ghosts to The Sims 4
. Ghosts will have the ability to join a player's household and become playable characters. You will also be able to bring back your ghostly Sims back to life, "if you dare." You can watch the video below which shows gameplay of the ghosts in The Sims 4
, along with the new features the ghosts have.
Along with ghosts "The October Update" will bring Star Wars
themed Halloween costumes. These costumes will allow players to dress their Sims up like Darth Vader, Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker and even Yoda. Considering EA has a deal to make Star Wars games
, it makes sense these costumes will be available in The Sims 4
. New eye colors will be a part of this October update, as well as some minor bug fixes.
Beyond October Maxis and EA announced
that November and December will be receiving new updates as well. November will see the return of swimming pools and December's update will add new career paths and options. EA didn't give any more details on these upcoming updates, so we will have to wait and see what else these updates will bring to The Sims 4
. The Sims 4
is available now for PC.
