The Sims 4: Family-Themed Game Pack coming this Spring!

The Sims Team has just confirmed in their latest Quarterly Teaser that the fifth Game Pack for The Sims 4 will be family-themed!

We don’t have a specific name of this pack but we can speculate about what the pack can bring.

Thiis Game Pack is expected to release this Spring and we can expect more information as we get closer to the release date.

  • It seems more like a back-to-school pack IMO. Either way, I’m excited for it!

      Seasons in a Game Pack? No thanks.

      • ZweliSims

        it could be a teensy hint, but i think when pets comes out (hopefully) next quarter, we should really start looking.

  • Zee Byrd

    Is that a preteen sitting at the table in the back?

    • SoulEater

      There has been some speculation around the topic, I myself hope it is, pre-teens would be a great addition to game it would be refreshing to see a new life stage added to the sims game after 13 years of the same life stages since The Sims 2 o;

      Nothing is for sure, I would not recommend getting your hopes up too high just to be crushed by disappointment tho…

    • Courtney Burgess

      are they meanign the family thing is in spring or summer? im confused onw hat they mean

    • Frida Flr

      Maybe not a preteen, but I actually hope they give Teens a cosmetic change, even if its just height, so they can look different than YA/A/E.

  • Domino

    But, but, but… PETS! 🙁

    • ZweliSims

      maybe next quarter? the 3rd quarter of each year is when we’ve gotten most of our expansions.

      • Courtney Burgess

        so the third quarter um is that exactly and are u sure that’s when we get most of them i mean this one is due in spring when would that be aroudn this month or we getting both in summer

        • Timmeh

          The Game Pack is coming in Spring & the Stuff Pack is coming in Summer. Also if they do release an EP in the next quarter they wouldn’t announce it in the teaser, usually they post a blog post announcement for it before the teaser, that’s what they did with City Living. 🙂

        • ZweliSims

          the sims team formally announced they are only making one expansion pack per year.

    Not that I’m against this new pack (In fact I’m really looking forward to something to do with families), but personally I don’t really see the point of preteens because the children in the game behave like them already. I don’t think that the kids in the game act like kids at all. It’s like they made a life stage that covers the ages 6-15. They play with toys and get scared about monsters under the bed, but they’re pretty independent. There’s just things that the game doesn’t allow them to do/use. I hope whatever this new pack is, it gives more family interactions, because all the children can do with their parents is ask for toys or ask about being old It would be nice if there were moodlets gained from interacting with their parents and siblings; teens could get embarrassed about babysitting their younger siblings, or children could get angry about a teen’s independence, or if children and teens could defy the way toddlers do (cos they do in real life). Another thing that would make kids more like kids is asking permission for things, like having a friend round or going out somewhere; the kids just seem to do as they please and no one reacts to it… Parents don’t even react if a kid drops a grade or misses school or doesn’t do their homework. Really, I think the principal should be calling the parents when kids do things like this. That’s why they seem more like preteens already. Not to mention they added the BEtween channel and tween pop. The only thing they’re missing is the romance option in the socials, but there’s already a school event about a potential crush. But I can understand why the did this because really, if you’re under 18 (16 in my country) you’re legally, and considered by most, a child. So I suppose it makes sense that they would make a life stage that covers a range of ages. It would just be nice if everyone else in the game treated them like kids; I always find it weird when random adults and elders start speaking to my kids in the game, or looking in the relationship panel to find them friends with one.

      “Preteens”* would be cool because Children are like 5 to 8 or 9 and Teens are like 15 1/2 to 18 That few year gap is HUGE in a persons development. I mean 13 year old’s usually don’t play with dolls or play house like the children do, but their also not driving, getting jobs, dating or fooling around like the teens.

      *I say preteen in quotes because its more like preteen to 16ish.

      • Courtney Chadwick-Annan

        Totally with you, so long as the children behave like to 5 to 8 year olds in this GP.
