Something, something Dark Side. The Star Wars universe is colliding with our Simmers with a new Sims 4 expansion pack. The Sims 4 is no stranger to expansions, it seems like a new one is being announced every few months, but the latest addition is perfect for those feeling those Star Wars vibes.
The newest expansion was revealed during Gamescom and is set to make its grand debut for players everywhere on September 8th. Live out that T'wilek fantasy or get your droid on, because it's all coming to the world of Sims here next month.
According to EA, here is the official description of the newest expansion:
In The Sims 4 Star Wars: Journey to Batuu, players will leave their homes to travel to the planet of Batuu where they’ll have to make a choice on which faction to work with, as the actions their Sims take will lead to control of the Black Spire Outpost. Sims can choose to support Rey and Vi Moradi as part of the Resistance, pledge loyalty to the First Order under Kylo Ren or shift their focus to gaining credits with Hondo Ohnaka and the scoundrels. As Sims embark on exciting missions, they’ll increase their reputation, unlock new artifacts and one-of-kind clothing, customize their own droids and create a coveted lightsaber. After players leave Batuu and return home, they can even bring back some of these items, like their lightsaber, to enjoy with other Sims they’ve already created.
“With The Sims, we’ve always strived to create content that takes players’ imaginations beyond their limits to tell fun and unique stories in the game, and with The Sims 4 Star Wars: Journey to Batuu, they’ll be able to take their Sims on an adventure to the edge of the galaxy,” Lyndsay Pearson, the executive producer of The Sims, said in a recent press statement. “We’re such big Star Wars fans, and set out to create an authentic and immersive Star Wars experience for players that also embodies the self-expression and deep storytelling possibilities with The Sims.”
With this year's Star Wars celebration canned due to COVID and a ton of new Star Wars experiences on the way both in games and on Disney+, it's a good time to choose a side and dive all into a galaxy far, far away.
