Tiny Secrets of Your Furry Friends

Via: The Sims

Simmers, get your lint rollers ready, because The Sims™ 4 My First Pet Stuff Pack* is now available on PC and Mac! Show off your love for Cats & Dogs, welcome home a new small animal, and more. Let’s dig into this awesome content, shall we?

If you own The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs,** you’ve probably already embarrassed your four-legged friends with adorable new outfits and cute widdle hats. But, we added some entirely new pets to The Sims 4 My First Stuff Pack. Ones that are tiny, furry, and more mischievous than you might have known. Today, we want to take a quick look at some of the little secrets of which you might not be aware . . .

You no doubt bought your favorite Sim an adorable new hamster, rat, pygmy hedgehog, or miniature bubalus, because they’re oh-so-cute and give your Sim yet another mouth to feed. But, did you also dive into their cage to discover their true lives and identities? Can you say your Sims truly know their rodent in the ways that matter most?

Getting to Know Your Furry Friend
Did you know your fuzzy friend can be a genius? As they go about their little lives, you’ll find they get into a variety of adventures that come with all sorts of perks. They may write a bestseller, which generates royalties. Or, experiment with cold fusion, resulting in a sudden explosion inside their habitat. Watch carefully to see if they figure out the true power of E=MC2! There’s plenty more to discover, but we want to save some surprises for you to find on your own.

Little furry creatures aren’t content to stay forever within the confines of their cage, so they may also step out from time to time to go on vacation. Don’t worry, they’ll send postcards! Keep them alive long enough (or replace one if you mess up) and try to collect all the postcards. They’ll say, “wish you were here,” while you’re staring at their cage playing sad music.

Party Animals
Do you enjoy a good party? Well, so do rodents. Occasionally, they’ll retreat to the mini-warehouse in their habitat and throw a rodent rave. You can just hear the “uhntz uhntz uhntz,” and no, that isn’t the noise from their hamster wheel.

Rodent Hazards
Naturally, any living creature in your home may introduce adversity. In this case, a dirty habitat may lead to outbreaks of rodent diseases. There’s a chance that once you introduce a rodent into your home, they’ll infect your Sims with Rabid Rodent Fever. At first, they might feel a little off. Then, they’ll have the fever and chills. They might even become dazed or feverish.

Don’t worry! If these symptoms persist, don’t bother calling a doctor. Go straight to a computer and research the disease. We’re sure you’ll find the proper medicine to cure what ails you.

The Sims 4 My First Pet Stuff is full of tiny secrets, primarily of which are the rodents themselves. Sure, you should take advantage of the new clothing and content for your dogs and cats, but give the rodents a second look. They’re wily little creatures.

Hello, Simmers and Final Fantasy fans!

Here at Maxis, we are excited and eagerly looking forward to the worldwide launch of FINAL FANTASY XV WINDOWS EDITION on March 6, 2018. To celebrate this special occasion, we’re working closely with Square Enix to make sure our players experience the amazingness of the game right there with us.

Starting on March 6, FINAL FANTASY XV Windows Edition players will be able to unlock some Sims awesomeness in their game with a unique Sims-themed Avatar. This avatar will feature the famous The Sims 4 Llama suit and Plumbob, and be available during the eight weeks following the game’s official launch.

But that’s not all!

The Sims 4 LOVES FINAL FANTASY XV Windows Edition just as much as they love us. So to commemorate this amazing launch, we are adding the Final Fantasy XV character outfit of the amazing crowned prince and protagonist of the game, Noctis Lucis Caelum*, to The Sims 4 Gallery post-launch. Here, The Sims 4 players will be able to download the outfit into their game to add to an established wardrobe, or to re-imagine and narrate your own story with – the choice is yours! Either way, we’re super excited to be able to offer our players this exclusive chance to bring a little Sims into their Final Fantasy game, and vice versa, and hope you are as enthusiastic about this as we are.

We’ll obviously be talking about this more in the coming weeks as we approach the big day, but let us know what you think! Share your thoughts with us on our social channels, and keep up-to-date on all the news by liking us on Facebook, following us on Twitter, or tagging us on Instagram.
