Star Wars: Journey to Batuu

Origin REALLY wants people to buy The Sims 4 Star Wars Game Pack

The Sims 4 Star Wars: Journey to Batuu Game Pack released about a month ago and the community reception around the pack was…mixed to say the least.

Fast forward to today and the Game Pack has been slashed to 50% off during Origin’s special Halloween Sale where you can also save big on other Sims 4 packs. This is not common, especially for Game Packs that get released just a month after to get their price cut in half. Still, it’s a decent deal for those who’d been wanting to get the pack. Emphasis on the word “wanting”.

During the last few hours people have started reporting Origin constantly suggesting The Sims 4 Star Wars Game Pack whenever you choose to purchase a pack of your choice. Sure, okay, no big deal. It’s kinda okay for Origin to recommend their latest Sims Pack even though they’re unrelated at all. Seriously, I’ve tried this with multiple packs and it always suggests the Star Wars pack – even making it seem like Nifty Knitting and Star Wars is the perfect theme combination!

However, that’s not all. Twitter user @ARIAVENTIS reports about a weird message that you get when trying to purchase The Sims 4 My First Pet Stuff. Clicking the Buy now button will immediately give you the “Whoops, you’re missing something” message, saying that you *need* The Sims 4 Star Wars Journey to Batuu Game Pack in order to access all content.

The other message is probably just a very strange glitch from Origin’s side considering that deciding to purchase any pack will automatically suggest you to get the Star Wars Game Pack as well.
