The Sims 4 is getting a free update for the series’ 16th anniversary.
The new items that will be available in this new update were chosen specifically for “fans who have been around since the first game,” with items appearing from each base game in the series – from The Sims, The Sims 2 and The Sims 3.
From The Sims – “We’re bringing an homage to the Tragic Clown by way of a painting of the sad fool. One look at it and your Sim will walk away with a “Tragic Clown is Tragic” Moodlet. If it makes your Sim sad, why look at it? Because sometimes everyone needs a good cry. But fear not – there’s also a Plumbob Poster you can use to decorate your Sim’s room. It doesn’t do anything, but we hope that when you look at it, you’re filled with happy feelings of llamas and grilled cheese.”
The grilled cheese aspiration is returning from The Sims 2. “If you want your Sim to have a (mildly unhealthy) obsession with Grilled Cheese, this is definitely the way to do it. ”
The Kleptomaniac Trait is also returning to The Sims 4 from The Sims 3, along with the gardener NPC to help take care of your plants, which reportedly was a highly-requested item to return.
