The Sims 4 hits the slopes in new expansion Snowy Escape, with a trailer reveal today

EA have partially revealed the newest expansion pack for The Sims 4 - showing a modest glimpse of shoulder, if you will. But friends, it is a cold shoulder. The expansion is called Snowy Escape, and until a trailer is revealed later today, that's pretty much all we have to go on. That, and a screenshot collage of cheery Sims doing winter sport activities like…

The Sims 4’s Star Wars expansion is out now

Captain's log, stardate 74156.3. We've encountered an entity calling itself 'Electronic Arts', which demonstrates godlike powers and treats human lives as pawns in a game for its own twisted enjoyment. It tells us we are its latest toys, and our homes, our heroes, and our decor shall join the fantasy it calls The Sims 4, declaring our imprisonment to be a 'game pack' named Star…

The Sims 4 is having an extremely normal one over its Star Wars DLC

The Sims 4 is once again courting (mild, predictable) controversy, this time because of the upcoming Star Wars(TM) Journey To Batuu game pack. The DLC itself doesn't arrive for another few days (coming to stores near you on Tuesday the 8th), but Simfluencers like Plumbella have posted preview impressions of it that aren't glowing.This has not improved the mood of a vocal section of Sims…

EA Play has arrived on Steam

Electronic Arts left Steam nine years ago to do their own thing with Origin, but over the last few months their games have been returning. Now, their subscription service, EA Play, is on Valve's platform, too, allowing you to play games like the Dragon Age series, Battlefield V, and more on Steam for a monthly or yearly fee. It's not just the old stuff EA…

EA’s subscription service is coming to Steam this month, but only the basic version

Electronic Arts have rebranded their Origin Access subscription service to EA Play, and announced that it will launch on Steam on August 31st. As before, it lets people play many of EA's games for as long as they pay, with a pricier tier giving access to their newest games. However, it seems only the basic version of EA Play is coming to Steam - EA…

The Sims 4 will fix dark skin tones and add new ones this year

The Sims series has a reputation for being inclusive and always striving to let players create Sims that represent themselves. For years though, Black players have been pointing out that The Sims 4 could really stand to do better with its dark skin tones that look desaturated compared to the skin of actual people. Thanks in part to a Twitter hashtag and a petition, Maxis…

You can now make the Sims 4 be The Truman Show literally as well as metaphorically

The Sims 4 has always kind of been The Truman Show as god game, hasn't it? You make your little puppet people, you control every aspect of their lives and personality from birth until death, you make them get in the pool and then remove the ladder. I am become Ed Harris, destroyer of worlds, right? And now, thanks to an incredible build creation shared…

The Sims 4 gets crafty with Nifty Knitting later this month

"Are you ready for your new knitting obsession", EA asks, knowing full well it is the height of summer. Nevertheless, the next The Sims 4's stuff pack is, indeed, Nifty Knitting - adding a full wool wash worth of knitted goods for your Sims to weave, wear, and (eventually) monetise, all from the comfort of their sturdy rocking chair come July 28th. Just, maybe stick…

The Sims is getting a reality show

Electronic Arts today announced The Sims 4 is spawning a reality TV show, The Sims Spark'd. No, it's not about strangers trapped in a swimming pool without a ladder. The four-episode series actually sounds kinda cool, challenging twelve Sims players to build characters, places, and stories in The Sims 4 and maybe win $100,000 (£78k). I'm so impressed by so many of the things players…

Surprise! The Sims 4 is now on Steam

Ahead of their big notE3 stream tonight, Electronic Arts have casually dropped The Sims 4 and its expansions onto Steam, no big deal. How criminal that one of the best management games has been locked in EA's tower. Titanfall 2 is here too. Steam's page does note that Sims 4 will install and use Origin, mind, so evidently you can't have everything.

The Sims 4’s latest patch fixes more crashes and broken saves, if not the flaming pee

Following the massive patch to The Sims 4 prior to the release of the Eco Lifestyle expansion, players almost immediately started having problems with their games. Many reported their games crashing, lost saves, and, for some reason, their Sims peeing fire. This has now been confirmed as a bug, not a feature, but everyone seems to be enjoying it still.Last night, though, the devs pushed…

The Sims 4 update has a bug that makes sims pee fire

Ahead of the Eco Lifestyle Expansion Pack releasing tomorrow - more on that as I play it myself - The Sims 4 got a big update yesterday. This happens semi-regularly, often timed around DLC releases, so let me preface all this by saying that the game screwing up a bit after a patch should not surprise anyone at this point. It's a 6-year-old game that's…

Sims 4’s Eco Lifestyle expansion will let you upcycle the neighborhood next month

The game that never ends is getting another expansion pack next month. The Sims 4's next addition will be a big urban renewal project called Eco Lifestyle in which you'll be able to recycle and upcycle junk around your neighborhood and participate in good ol' local democracy. Ah, and you can have your very own online store for selling your eco-friendly creations. What's Simlish for…

The next The Sims game could have online elements, EA say

Don't panic. Or don't get too excited, depending on your opinions on the long-dead The Sims Online from 2002. During a recent earnings call, EA's CEO Andrew Wilson alludes to experimenting with social and competitive elements in a future Sims game but the word "MMO" was definitely not mentioned. Instead he says that "this notion of social interactions and competition [...] will start to become…
