The Sims

Happy 18th Anniversary from The Sims!

Hello, Simmers!

February is here, and with it, an update with new content for you to enjoy.* In between the expansions, game packs, and stuff packs, we’re always trying to pick items that make your experience with The Sims™ 4 better. Feedback is essential! We’re constantly browsing social media, the forums, and even examining gaps in our content to try to meet your expectations.

That is what this update is all about! It focuses on an anniversary t-shirt, a new curly hair, and a variety of new skin tones focusing on darker shades.

To start us off, it’s the eighteenth anniversary of The Sims franchise. That’s wild! To celebrate, we’ve created a fun graphic t-shirt for your Sims to enjoy. Attending a house party? Raise a toast to eighteen years of such a wonderful community. Want to match your Sim? You can now purchase this design on our Threadless Store!

Next is a new curly hair, which is really exciting for us. Throughout the history of The Sims, it has been notoriously difficult for us to make great curly hair. But, we love this new style. It’s gorgeous and full of body. It’s perfect to pair with an elegant gown for a night on the town or for an aspiring guitarist with great hair in the city square. We can’t wait to see the characters you share on the gallery.

Next up are skin tones. It’s so important to us to support as diverse a suite of Sims as possible, so we deeply explored new darker skin tones. It is always our goal that Simmers can create themselves, famous celebrities, characters from favorite fictions, or anyone they can imagine; and getting the skin tone just right is one of the first steps in creating an amazing Sim.

We hope you enjoy these tiny, but essential, building blocks to create beautiful Sims. Be sure to share your creations on the Gallery and share your feedback with the SimGurus on Twitter, or with fellow Simmers on the forums.
Happy Simming!
