It’s hard to believe it’s been a month since we launched The Sims 4, but in that short time we’ve received a ton of great feedback as you’ve started exploring the game. We’ve designed The Sims 4 to be a live service, so we can continually evolve the experience, add new content, and incorporate as much of your feedback as possible. That’s what I’m here to talk about today.
So let’s get to it. Live RIGHT NOW is the first of three major game updates coming to The Sims 4 over the next three months, each with new features, new content and more. The updates will be free for everyone playing The Sims 4 who downloads the latest patch, and yes, there will be pools!
During an EA conference call this morning, The Sims team officially announced they will begin delivering brand new game content/features via free Sims 4 patches. The first game update will be hitting your games today!
Along with this official announcement, EA also provided us with some exclusive images of some of the upcoming content. Expect the formal announcement the team later today on the Twitch Broadcast.
• Ghosts (October 1st)
• Star Wars Costumes (October 1st)
• New Gnome (October 1st)
• New Eye Colors (October 1st)
• Pools (November 2014)
• Careers (December 2014)
Note: This post was updated to correct the release month for Careers. They will be released in December, and not in November as originally stated.
Here to kick off October’s Community Spotlight is YouTuber 8BitMom! In a brief introduction below, Val gives readers a chance to learn a bit more about what she does. Take it away Val!
Hey guys, what’s up? I’m Valerie Anne aka 8BitMom – a French Canadian lady who isn’t scared of the ridicule and speaking her mind. Before I begin my story, I’d like to point out that I am very humbled to have been invited to be October’s community spotlight for SimsVIP! I perhaps am too humble and don’t feel worthy of a showcase but I would also be lying if I’d say I wasn’t psyched as hell! So, thank you Alexis for inviting me, and this is my warning to you guys that I rarely stay serious, so fear my rambling below!
It all started on a cold December morning, 1981… but for reals though – I have been gaming all my life. From the original Nintendo console to all the available machines now, I’ve always had a passion for gaming. So much so that I have met my husband in an MMO and, coincidentally, are celebrating our 6th year wedding anniversary this October! Needless to say, I love games, but one type of game that has always been my favorite is simulation games: Harvest Moon, SimCity, and quite evidently, The Sims, to name a few.
Video Feed will be added an hour before the event as Twitch puts a strain on the site.
With all the amazing Custom Content already available in the community, it was time for me to make my first “CC Sim”. After a week of pushing, pulling and “enhancing, I have created Victoria Livingston. She is a Romantic Materialistic with enough Ambition to complete the Mansion Baron aspiration.
She is a custom Sim so I have listed all the CC used to create her below. Find all of my Sim creations on The Sims 4 Gallery under the Origin ID SimsVIP_Admin. Enjoy!
