The Sims 4 has Permanently Changed Age Durations


The new Age Ranges have changed drastically for Normal and Long Age Spans!

After the High School Years Update on July 26th, people started to notice that their sims had more days for each age group. After some reports to EA Help, SimGuruNick weighed in and confirmed that the age durations had been changed.
