The Sims team has officially announced that The Sims 4 Parenthood and Kids Room Stuff are coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on June 19th! For information on these games and what’s included, check out our Parenthood and Kids Room Guides!
Move over, fully-grown Sims. Two new The Sims™4 packs* are coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on June 19, 2018, and they’re all about kids and teens! As a little preview to kick-start your parental instincts, below are three things to get excited about each pack.
The Sims 4 Parenthood
Raising kids in The Sims 4 has never been more meaningful. In this pack, choices you make when raising kids truly matter, all the way into their adulthood! As you develop parenting skills, there are five character values you can grow throughout kids’ and teens’ lives: manners, emotional control, empathy, responsibility, and conflict resolution. When you scold or praise kids – whichever is more your parenting style – they’re more likely to behave.
Want some family-friendly activities? You got ‘em! Your young students will bring home school projects they can put together at home. Parents will also have opportunities to volunteer at school and will receive calls from school about solving conflicts with their child. The answers they give will affect those character values we talked about. Oh, and it may not seem like a family activity, but don’t forget about the always-important curfew. This will be helpful to keep families on the same page. Kids need boundaries, after all!
Phased and Confused
Children and teens go through phases, just like us, and this can alter their day-to-day moods and activities. For some Sims, that means lots of emotions and blasting music at all hours. For others, it’s melancholy all the way, and only certain things will be able to cheer them up. (Note to self: wear bear costume.) In other words, be prepared for whatever they throw your way!
The Sims 4 Kids Room Stuff
From floor to ceiling, you can customize kids’ rooms to their hearts’ content. Wall decals, posters, paper lanterns, and toy chests provide the perfect environment for comfort and fun. Plus, add a bookshelf to spark kids’ imaginations (and report cards) and an activity table for writing, drawing, and making crafts. And don’t forget Bosley Bot the robot!
The kids’ clothing you’ll get with this pack just might make your adult Sims jealous. Graphic tees? Check. Ripped jeans in different patterns and colors? Yep. Adorable skirts? You bet. Playing dress-up has never looked this fun!
Gamers in Training
As a child progresses through the social skill, they’ll get the Puppet Theater! There are many magical stories to perform, and different tales unlock as the child levels up this skill. Will it be a detective mystery, an outdoor adventure, or even a monster story? The choice is yours! Speaking of monsters, we can’t go any further without telling you about Voidcritters! Customizing and decorating your kid’s room will be tons of fun, and it’ll be the perfect backdrop for the Voidcritter Battle Station. Kids can test their skills and go head-to-head in this competitive card game. Using one of twenty collectible cards that can be found around your Sims’ world, the aim is for your Voidcritter to come out victorious. Mini-game lovers unite! This is gonna be good.
What will be your parenting philosophy? Tough love? Gentle guidance? You can raise young Sims however you like and customize their bedrooms when The Sims 4 Parenthood and The Sims 4 Kids Room Stuff release on PlayStation4 and Xbox One June 19, 2018.
