More Details

As you can see from the list and roadmap, the details are pretty vague. While we know we'll be getting a new Game Pack, Kit, and 3 Updates, we don't know exactly what they're going to be.

As EA themselves say, the best way to stay up to date is to follow The Sims on Twitter.

New Sims 4 Expansion

Finally, this is confirmation that a new Sims 4 expansion pack will be coming sometime soon.

We had speculated that June would be the perfect time, since that's when new expansions release every year.

Aside from having a "nature" side, we don't know anything about it. However, it will come later this summer.

Also, we hope to hear more about The Sims 5 later this summer. You can check out everything we know about that game so far here.
