The Sims 4 Summer Lineup Announcement Infuriates Fans
After teasing players with an update on Twitter, fans responded to the lighthearted offers with frustration at the game’s lack of major new content.
The Sim 4 announced new minor game updates slated for release over the next few months, but not all fans are happy with them.
The Sim 4 The official Twitter page teased fans yesterday with a nondescript announcement slated for today with a new banner that read “This Season It’s Lights Out”, leaving people excited for the potential reveal of a new expansion. This morning he posted a short trailer of a Sim watching TV and flipping through the channels and it ended with the caption, “Stay awake in The Sims.” When the only things announced at the end were a single game pack and two kits for May and June, some fans became furious.
The reactions seemed to be split into two camps, with some getting excited at what they saw as hints of a werewolf life state coming to the game, while others getting furious. Following the difficult launch of My Marriage Storiesfans seemed hopeful for a new expansion that would add more in-depth content to the game. The bug-riddled expansion pack led several fans to give up The Sims series, finding it impossible to play as is. For those fans, today’s announcement of pretty meager offers does nothing to satiate them.
Since its release in 2014, The Sims 4 was often seen as a shallower offering than its predecessor, and many game packs since have strived to add features that The Sims 3 owned from the start. Some of them, such as Story Progression, were only added in December last year in The Sims 4 Neighborhood Stories. Yet other features, such as certain supernatural creatures and the variety of pet options found in The Sims 3remain absent almost eight years since The Sims 4 has been freed.
One thing that The Sims 4 improved its performance. The release of The Sims 4: My Marriage Stories revealed the inclusion of a story about the marriage of two women, Dom and Cam. However, EA Games has confirmed that the inclusion of Dom and Cam’s story means My Marriage Stories had been banned in Russia for violating Article 6.13.1 of Russian law which prohibits “propaganda or homosexuality among minors”.
No exact release date or information about the content of the game pack and kits has been released. The Sims 4 is available to play now on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
