Sims 4 Announcements at EA Play

Hello everyone! So yesterday was EA Play and with that came some new Sims 4 announcements. As with most things that have been happening, the new expansion pack leaked online a few days before the panel and Simmers everywhere were stuck waiting for the confirmation.

Well yesterday we got our confirmation and so much more. Read on for the Alyssa version of what happened at yesterday’s Sims 4 EA Play announcement!

First, the expansion pack – Island Living. Let’s take a look at that trailer first, shall we?

Right off the bat I’m excited. You see this amazing tropical paradise and some jet ski’s that your Sims can ride. Then there’s some beach relaxation, toddler building a sandcastle, and sail boats!!

But we’re not done yet, friends.

For the first time ever, we are going to be able to walk right in to the open ocean! Not only did they confirm that yesterday at the announcement, but you can see Sims clearly just relaxing and swimming in the ocean with tons of new creatures mind you. One of them being DOLPHINS! You can befriend dolphins and explore the ocean – I know my Sim is definitely going to befriend as many dolphins as she can.

Another cool feature with this pack is the new career – you can be a conservationist and clean up the beach around you. How much you clean up the beach actually effects the life on the island – if its clean it grows and stays beautiful and if it isn’t then it shows.

There’s also a lot of new culture that you can look at within the island. They have traditions of their own that you can join in on and become a true islander.

Sims 4 Island Living - Mermaid and Dolphin

And let’s not forget the last part of that trailer – MERMAIDS! Your Sim can be a mermaid. We can make them in CAS, meet them in the ocean, and befriend dolphins with them. It’s actually said that if you are a mermaid you want to befriend dolphins – no clue why, but I trust the gurus.

This goes on sale June 21st for PC and Mac players and you can pre-order it on Origin here.

But they weren’t done yet after that! For the next announcement, they brought in Youtuber Joey Graceffa to say that they are finally bringing PRIDE merch to the Sims! By the end of the month all games and platforms will have pride merch that you can deck your Sims out in year round.

And speaking of fashion, we are getting a stuff pack of the Sims x Moschino – which I’m kind of excited for because we all know not a lot of people could actually afford to buy the real life collaboration because it was to damn expensive. According to the gurus, that pack is coming end of the Summer.

And they gave us the littlest, teeniest tease for the fall pack: Realm of Magic.

GUYS. MAGIC. THEY’RE BRINGING BACK MAGIC. AND I AM HERE FOR IT SO, SO MUCH. I can finally live out my magical witch and wizard dreams.

Well, that’s all I got for EA Play Sims 4 announcements. There were many more for other EA games, but since I only care about the Sims, you got this.

I know there are still a lot of people who are complaining because a pack they want isn’t included or hasn’t been made yet – but guys; give it time. They said that the rest of 2019 is gonna be a huge year with the Sims so maybe we’ll get University then.

Yes, that is what 99% of people want. College for Sims. No magic, no islands, no mermaids – college. You guys are boring, man. Why stick your Sim through college? Idk man.

Anyways, subscribe to my Youtube channel if you haven’t already for more Sims! I’ve been doing a lot of building and I’m going to do a small Let’s Play when the expansion comes out and we can all explore it together.

    Sometimes I just can’t keep up with so many add-ons they make for the Sims. Nor can my bank account. What’s next? University expansion pack?

      I feel you on the bank account thing. My poor, poor bank account. If University isn’t next a lot of people are gonna be pissed off. A lot of people wanted that a long time ago and are mad we still don’t have it. I’d rather have magic and mermaids, honestly.

        Well we have a vampire one. Someone made an amazing machinima of a girl who learns her mother is a mermaid and becomes one herself which required a lot of mods I imagine.

          True, the vampires are pretty cool to play with. I’m just super into fantasy stuff so that magic pack thats coming in the fall is just totally up my alley!
