Wants and fears are back and they’re better than ever!
In the High School Years deep dive livestream today, SimGuruGeorge and SimGuruJessica showed off the new Wants and Fears system coming to The Sims 4 in a free base game update prior to the release of the High School Years expansion.
Wants and fears are finally back in The Sims and they’re even better than their predecessors. Unlike whims, wants and fears will cater more to your Sim’s unique traits and personality (yes, it’s true; no more BUY BEE BOX whim rolling over and over again).
Sims will have three wants; one long term want, one short term want, and one reactionary want that fluctuates based on where they are and what they’re doing. If they’re at the gym, they might have a reactionary want to work out, for example.
Sims will develop fears in-game based on negative lived experiences. If your Sim experiences a house fire, they may become afraid of fire, for example. Fears aren’t only a negative thing, however! Your Sims will have the opportunity to face their fear and conquer it, or they can choose to live with the fear.
