The Sims 4: New Game Patch (April 26th, 2023)

- Advertisement -

The Sims has rolled out a minor new patch for The Sims 4. It corrects what’s been called “the face bug”, in which sims were showing a few differences especially around their eyes and mouth. You can read more about this bug on EA’s Answer HQ.

It also brings back the “loose tooth” feature from Growing Together, that were causing issues to child sims faces.

If you have auto updates enabled in Origin’s “Application Settings”, the game will auto-update once you open Origin. If you have auto-updates disabled, you will need to manually update by clicking the game in your library.


To ensure your game is up to date, check the game version found in Documents > EA > The Sims 4 > GameVersion.txt. Your game should now read: PC: Mac: / Console: Version 1.75

Sul Sul Simmers

This patch re-enables the lose tooth feature from The Sims 4 Growing Together expansion pack. With much wiggling, pulling, and twisting those several pesky tooth issues have been yanked right out. Our Sims’ mouths have healed wonderfully and the over nine million recently created infants will once again have these next stages of life to look forward to. We appreciate your patience throughout this dental visit and wish you many Simoleons under your pillow in the morning.
