Pride Content and Magic-Focused Expansion Headline Upcoming The Sims 4 Add-ons

The Sims 4

While ‘Island Living’ is the next flagship update for The Sims 4, Maxis has also outlined some of the other content lined up for this year.

Before beginning the announcements, senior producer Michael Duke said that 2019 is “is gonna be the best year yet” for The Sims series.

The first new add-ons will be free Pride content set to release “in the next few months” in collaboration with the It Gets Better Project, according to YouTuber Joey Graceffa. That content will include new themed items and clothing, including a gender neutral bathroom option. That content will begin rolling out across The Sims 4, Freeplay, and Mobile on June 18.

Being able to add this kind of content and hearing stories about how it positively affects LGBTQI+ gamers “makes what we do feel so much more powerful and meaningful,” said Duke.

Meanwhile, a much anticipated ‘Realm of Magic’ Game Pack will launch in the northern hemisphere’s autumn, with more details set to emerge later this year.

The other key piece of upcoming content to be revealed is a new Stuff Pack that expands on the partnership between Maxis and fashion brand Moschino, which, in addition to the expected clothing items, will introduce the freelance fashion photographer career. That pack will be available in the next few months.

These new packs and free content no doubt count towards the 20 updates that EA has in store for the game across this financial year.

Tim Schafer: No Plans for Brutal Legend 2, but ‘Never Say Never’

Published

Brutal Legend

Double Fine’s heavy-metal mashup, Brutal Legend, has gone some time without a proper sequel and Double Fine head Tim Schafer thinks there is still some waiting to do.

During a press Q&A session at E3 2019, Schafer was asked about the possibility of a sequel to the Jack Black-starring action-adventure game. Though Schafer says Double Fine would like to move on to something new first, a sequel may certainly still happen.

“That’s a fun universe, too, that I’d love to back to, but now we’ve been in sequel mode for a few years and it’d be nice to do something new…but never say never.”

Schafer commented on the possibility of a Brutal Legend 2 two years back, stating that fans will eventually see a sequel. During that same report, Schafer teased that Brutal Legend 2 would be an expensive game to make.

This most recent update at least reaffirms Schafer’s fondness for the series, even if the Double Fine team wants a break from sequels.

Brutal Legend released to generally strong reviews, with many praising its comedy and unique world.
