The Sims 4 to Receive at Least 20 New Content Updates This Year

The Sims 4

The Sims 4 players should expect a sizable number of updates packed with plenty of content in the future.

Courtesy of EA CEO Andrew Wilson’s comments during the company’s most recent quarterly earnings call , players can expect “20 new content drops and expansion packs this year.”

EA executives also revealed that the game’s audience grew 35 percent in the last year. Considering this growth, 20 new content updates should come as little surprise.

Typically, Maxis releases one or two expansion and game packs each year, as well as three or four stuff packs and an equal number of free updates to increase functionality.

Late last year, Grant Rodiek, lead producer on The Sims 4, discussed on Twitter how he’d like to incorporate those with disabilities into the game at some point. To the excitement of many, Rodiek suggested that the team just needed a little more time.

The amount of upcoming content promises a lot for the future, but hopefully the proper representation of those with disabilities is part of the roadmap.

Just a month ago, developer Maxis revealed it would add a new freelancing career and outfits as part of a free update that later came April 16.

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine Adds Chinese-American Stories and Chinese Localization

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine will be receiving a new content update featuring Chinese-American stories, including full Chinese language support.

According to Steam, a new content update entitled “Gold Mountain” is available for anyone who owns the game. The update focuses on new tales focusing on Chinese Americans and their impact on American history and culture. The Steam update also explains the reasoning for including these stories:

“The Gold Mountain update was created to honor the millions of Chinese-Americans generally overlooked in American history. We hope that you enjoy the new original stories that are included in the update and look forward to reading all of your thoughts.”

Additionally, the ‘Gold Mountain’ update includes full Chinese language support for the game’s ‘Fireside Chats’, which is a free standalone experience that adds exclusive story content to the game’s 16 characters. The full Chinese version of the main game will release once the Chinese localization team, led by Ryan Zhang, finishes the new content.

OnlySP’s Derek Swinhart was left disappointed by the game when it released last year, stating that it promised “a long and exciting road-trip across unknown territory, but ends up only offering flat tires and postcards of better places.”
