The Sims 4

The Sims 4 is officially rebranding! (New Plumbob, Render, Box Arts and MORE)

During today’s Maxis Monthly Livestream The Sims Team has announced that they’ll be giving The Sims 4’s brand a complete revamp!

Starting early next week you’ll be able to see The Sims 4 in a whole new way with a whole new plumbob, new box arts, new renders and a new color palette surrounding the game!

The Plumbob

The Plumbob now has a glossier look with more saturated colors and more shine. The new plumbob will be replacing the old one in all places except in-game where the plumbob in Live Mode will remain the same.

The Box Arts

All of The Sims 4 box arts will be getting a whole new look, starting with The Sims 4 Base Game Box Art which features new Sims, a new plumbob and a new color palette!

The Base Game isn’t the only Sims 4 game that’s getting a revamp – ALL of the current packs we have (and the future ones coming as well) will be getting a whole new look. Expansion Packs will no longer be marked to their specific colors (for example red for Cats & Dogs) but rather under the same color tone. All of the box arts will have their pack icon featured on the top right and will focus more on the renders now. Some of the box arts will even have an entirely different render featured – for example The Sims 4 Toddler Stuff Pack shown down below.

The Sims 4 logo will be featured in all of the pack box arts on the bottom left corner.

Main Menu

The Sims 4’s Main Menu now has a completely different look! There’s now a lot more room for Expansion Packs, Game Packs, Stuff Packs and Free Packs in the “Your Collection” section.

The Sims 4’s updated logo is now also added on the top right side of the screen. The Sims 4’s brand new signature render is displayed in the middle. Just like now you’ll be able to switch between different game renders!

Those who don’t have a complete collection of Sims 4 Packs will now also be able to build their own pack bundles using the “Build Your Bundle” feature straight from the Main Menu. This is exclusive to PC / Mac and won’t be transferred over to consoles while all of the other changes will be applied to Console players.

Loading Screen

The Loading Screen now features a new background and the new plumbob!

It seems The Sims Team still has plenty of more plans for The Sims 4. SimGuruFrost elaborated on Twitter why the sudden change of the look, saying that one of the main reasons why they’ve pulled this off was because of The Sims 4’s ongoing success. According to Frost, this is also a way to show The Sims Team’s commitment to support The Sims 4 for many more years.
