A few simmers have reported on social media that their Sims have gotten an opportunity via phone to join a “Blind Date” with another unknown Sim. These have started happening not with The Sims 4’s latest update but after installing The Sims 4 Get Famous Expansion Pack.
Player @OnyekaOO1 has also shared a screenshot of the notification she received in the game:
We asked around on Twitter to see if this is truly new with The Sims 4 Get Famous and how does it actually occur in the game. SimGuruGraham explained the entire process and the functionality of Blind Dates:
This is indeed new with Get Famous. You can receive a phone call to go on a blind date if you have Great reputation (or better), or Awful reputation (or worse). Your blind date with will match your Sim’s romantic gender preference, and will have compatible reputations.
Blind Dates are an interesting opportunity to meet a new Sim you’ve never met before considering that you’ll be getting a recommendation from a friend to meet someone new. As Graham explained, the Blind Date that’ll be suggested to you will match your Sim’s gender preference.
The Blind Date opportunity will only show up if your Sim already has a knowledgable reputation – not depending on whether it’s good or bad.
