The Sims 4 team released a roadmap for content to be delivered during May and June. As exciting as it is to see new updates from The Sims 4 team, some would argue that it’s getting more and more difficult to keep getting excited only to be presented with overpriced kits and game packs that hardly contain anything truly new.
The roadmap, teased by images on The Sims 4’s official Twitter page, seems to heavily feature a strong nocturnal theme. The Sims 4 even changed the classic plumbob reflected on their social media pages to a neon, almost futuristic style plumbob. The teasers also featured the hint’ Lights out,’ leading some to speculate we might be getting some kind of Sims 2 Nightlife/ Sims 3 Late Night-esque content. From the teaser, it’s evident that we’re getting two new kits and one new game pack over the next two or so months.
So what can we expect in these new kits? Well, the catchphrases that accompanied the two kit teasers are ‘Chic Nights Out’ and ‘Cozy Nights In.’ The prevailing opinion within the Sims community here is that they’ll both most likely be CAS kits. We might get some outdoor furniture here and there or a light sprinkling of decor. But they’ll both most likely be CAS items.
The game pack’s slogan is ‘Go Wild.’ Cryptic, it definitely is not. However, the Sims 4 official website comes with its own teasers. Here, you’ll see the phrase ‘Stay up with the Sims’ followed by ‘Step into the moonlight and explore who you are after dark.’ Werewolves. That’s the prevailing opinion amongst Sims 4 CC creators, players, and Game Changers. Werewolves. It almost sounds obvious, and they’re one of the only occult life states within the franchise that hasn’t made it into the Sims 4 yet.
Honest opinion: It’s time for the Sims 5. The Sims 4 is the longest-running game in the franchise, and it’s become evident that we aren’t getting the Create-a-World tool, cars, or open-world mechanics that we’ve been asking for. So maybe it’s time to stop distracting us with overpriced kits and try and deliver the experience we’ve been missing from previous games in the next major title.
If we do get new items of some sort in one of the new kits, here’s how to rotate furniture in Sims 4 in three easy ways!
