Picture this: Your Sims are chilling poolside in their mansion, basking in the glow of their skyrocketing acting careers.
Also, picture this: An aspiring-singer Sim who practices their vocals for tips downtown.
Better yet, picture this: You’re designing the perfect home in the hills, complete with a pile of cash, overlooking the star-studded Del Sol Valley.
All these scenarios are almost at your fingertips because The Sims™ 4 Get Famous Expansion Pack* is coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on February 12, 2019. Below is an overview of what to expect, and if you just can’t wait to get your hands on some Sims fame, pre-order here.
A Whole New World
One of the most exciting parts of an expansion pack is a fresh world! Del Sol Valley is yours for the taking, and it’s home to A-listers, up-and-comers, and everyone in between. The residential area is split into two parts: Mirage Park in the flatlands with modestly-priced homes, and The Pinnacles, high in the hills and fit for the rich and famous. Your Sims can explore the museum, nightclub, lounge, and other awesome venues. But if you think any and every Sim can get into these places, think again. Sims might not be on the list for some destinations. But there’s always a chance they can convince a bouncer to let them in. If not, cheer up. The more VIP they become, the easier it will be to slide into the most exclusive shindigs.
A Sim Star is Born
Watch out Starlight Boulevard, because your Sim was born for the red carpet. The shiny, sparkling acting career has arrived, and a rags-to-riches story is bound to happen. So, how does your Sims see their name in lights? First, they’ll join the acting career. From there, it can be a whirlwind of fun and fame, as long as your Sim keeps up with all the demands. Practicing acting, staying up on social media, and joining a talent agency are all part of the journey to stardom. The higher your Fame score, the more awesomeness you can unlock, like flaunting your wealth with a money phone. I mean, your Sim earned it, right?
The best part is you can join your Sim on their acting journey. Within the studio lot, you’ll control your Sim on gigs where they’ll be transformed in the hair and makeup room, rub elbows with the director, and even grab an award-winning performance. The more Fame Points they earn, the more Fame Perks they can get.
The Fame Factor
Each Sim who lives in Del Sol Valley has a Public Image, which is a combination of Reputation and Celebrity Level. As their Celebrity Level rises, they’ll earn Fame Points, unlock perks, and gain benefits like slipping past the velvet rope at the hottest spot in town. There are many ways to earn points and get perks. Your Sim can perform music or jokes at open mic night, donate to their favorite charity, get an A-lister to hang out with them (fingers crossed!), or even be the child of famous parents.
Has your Sim ever wanted to be a fashion trailblazer? Well, they’ll see it right before their eyes when other Sims begin dressing like them. Or, how about a fan favorite? When your Sim drops everything to strike a pose on Starlight Boulevard, passersby just might faint. But don’t worry about picking those fans up. Bouncers can deal with them. When your Sim unlocks the squad perk, they’ll lead a pack of other
Warning: Fame comes with a price, and we’re not talking Simoleons. Fans and Stans can act, um, a little strange around your Sim. And, don’t even get us started on the paparazzi. Can’t a celebrity live in peace?! Unless they choose to don a disguise, not really.
