News Snowy Escape The Sims 4

Culturally Sensitive Changes Have Been Made to The Sims 4 Snowy Escape

Following the release of the reveal trailer for The Sims 4 Snowy Escape, some players from South Korea raised concerns about problematic and culturally insensitive imagery featured in the trailer. The trailer appeared to depict Sims bowing at a shrine and the pattern of a sunburst on some items of clothing.

South Korean players pointed out that these images are a painful reminder of historical events during WWII that are still deeply felt today.

Today, @SimGuruGraham took to Twitter to assure players that in light of this knowledge, they have edited the reveal trailer and removed the offensive material from the expansion. Sims will no longer bow at the shrines and depictions of the rising sun pattern have been removed.

For players outside of East Asia who may not be familiar with the negative cultural and historical impact of these in-game depictions, please see our previous article on this subject, South Korean Players Raise Concern Over Insensitive Imagery in The Sims 4 Snowy Escape.
