Console players rejoice! The Sims™ 4 is coming to XBOX One and PlayStation® 4 this November 17, 2017! Whether you prefer console or PC, you’ll soon be able to share your Sims stories no matter your platform of choice.

And it is an exciting time to get into The Sims 4. Since our initial launch on PC, we have made several updates to the base game, ranging from the addition of Ghosts and Pools, to New Careers, Half-Walls, and Dishwashers! Not to mention, we also added the world of Newcrest, to give your Sims space to continue to grow; overhauled the Create a Sim tool, to provide expanded gender customization options; and most recently, added Toddlers as a new playable life state! All of these great updates will be available to you at launch when you play The Sims 4 on console.

It won’t stop there either! Upon The Sims 4’s release on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this November, Maxis and the team at Blind Squirrel Games plan on revisiting our current lineup of extra DLC to bring over some of the best experiences to console on a regular basis, but we plan to start providing players periodic game updates that mirrors some of the latest content we’ve released for PC, delivering new features, and continuing to improve your game experience.

Starting today, pre-order The Sims™ 4 on Xbox One and PlayStation® 4 to get The Sims 4 Perfect Patio Stuff* featuring hot tubs, more fashion, and bonus décor. Yep, you read that right; from now until November 17, 2017, when you pre-order the physical or digital version of The Sims 4 on console, you will receive a digital code to download The Sims 4 Perfect Patio Stuff Pack at launch.

Simmer Spotlight – Family Vacation Build Challenge

Via: The Sims

Calling all builders! In case you missed it, our friends over at Twitch recently hosted HollieBB’s Family Vacation Build Challenge for all of our builders out there. In order to participate, participants were tasked to build a house using randomly-selected theme while using unlimited money and specific content from our recently launched The Sims™ 4 Parenthood Game Pack*.

While we saw a lot of incredible creations submitted, we wanted to take a moment to highlight three of our favorites!

Let’s kick it off with something nice and relaxing. With summer vacation in full swing, it’s only natural that parents will want to take some time to get away before the craziness truly begins. Now you can with this beautiful SPA, created by Koffee.

Summer usually means getting out and having fun as a family (or as a party of one, no shame in that), and boy do we have a fun build for Sims of all ages to enjoy. Take a walk in Fun Fun Land, by Dr. Gluon.

Our final build feature is going to give you the creeps (and it certainly gives us chills)… But for families who love the darker side of things (and just love being on edge), we present to you Camp Creeper, by HolieBB.

While Twitch is no longer hosting streams for the build challenge on the front page, if you’d like to participate in the challenge here are the rules:

We look forward to seeing what other amazing Family Vacation inspired getaways continue to be shared for your Sims, and others, to enjoy.
