Yep, in-law visits are a confirmed new feature!
Ever since the first reveal trailer dropped for The Sims 4 Growing Together, Simmers have been wondering whether grandparent visits were just movie magic or an actual feature. Today’s gameplay trailer confirmed that in-laws coming to visit is a new feature coming with this expansion pack. You might want to make sure your Sims have a guest room ready for them because they’re bringing luggage!
The narrator confirms in The Sims 4 Growing Together gameplay trailer that the grandfather was staying with the Michaelsons as a temporary guest. We saw him bring his luggage up to the house so we can only assume he intends to stay for a couple nights! The Sims Twitter account also confirmed this feature.
Depending on the family dynamics of the household in The Sims 4 Growing Together, in-law visits can be an exciting or a stressful event! The grandson has a great relationship with his grandfather and is super excited to have him stay for a while. He’s been feeling left out since his sister was born. He’s looking forward to having someone pay attention to him again for once. Meanwhile, the boy’s father does not get along with his father-in-law. They are socially incompatible and having his wife’s father in the house is causing him some stress.
The Growing Together gameplay trailer did a great job showing off how “it’s all relative.” An in-law coming to stay for a while can be exciting for one Sim in the household but stressful for another Sim in the household. Those Sims’ social compatibility and family dynamics will influence this sense of perspective.
