EA released The Sims 4: Living in a Cabin in June 2021. Since the release of The Sims 4, developer Maxis almost always released updates in the form of expansion packs, game packs, and item packs that rejuvenated things a bit at a time. The Cottage Living update has been like a breath of fresh air, adding a new town for Sims to live in and giving players the means to create their best English village life.
Fans think it’s high time another update was given to The Sims 4, as it’s been almost a year since Cottage Living came out. Luckily for fans of the life simulator, information for a new expansion pack may be coming sooner rather than later.
Future The Sims 4 ‘Living’ Potential for Updates
The SimsThe official Twitter account recently announced that the next roadmap content update will arrive in May. Those who loved the “Cottagecore” feel of Cottage Living seem to yearn for different vibes to build their dream homes, and there are a few ideas for how EA could do just that.
The next game update could come in the form of a proper occult expansion pack, in addition to the already available The Sims 4: Vampires game pack. Players could have more life states such as fairies, mummies, werewolves and witches, like those in The Sims 3: Supernatural and world adventure. While the Vampires game pack contains a plethora of gothic merchandise, a full-scale occult expansion pack could allow players to build on their magical fantasies. They might live in a witch’s lair or a fairy grove; make an underground werewolf lair or decorate their homes with an ancient Egyptian mix.
Another life customization update that could be coming The Sims 4 is a similar to The Sims 3: Into the Future. A futuristic expansion pack could put a sci-fi twist on players’ Sims lives, allowing them to live in spaces similar to the Jetsons – or maybe even live in space on a moon or with the ability to live on other Sims – colonized planets. This expansion pack for The Sims 4 could also bring the studious Curious family back into The Sims series, who may be responsible for creating the device that takes The Sims into the future.
On the other hand, the Curious family time machine could take players’ Sims back to the past rather than the future. This style of expansion pack would be able to tie together the main storyline of The Sims to that of 2011 The Medieval Sims, taking The Sims back to the Middle Ages. Players could live in grand castles or inns, become nobles or innkeepers if they wished, and decorate their homes with period furniture and accessories. An expansion that takes players back in time could also add new career paths and ambitions. Here EA has another opportunity to create and add a new prefab family into the mix with a medieval twist.
The next roadmap update could provide fans with an exciting new expansion pack for The Sims 4. Whether it’s a minor expansion or something akin to Cottage Living remains to be seen, but fans should find out next month. Or maybe EA could surprise fans with an announcement for The Sims 5. Either way, the developer should be sure it shakes things up in the future.
The Sims 4: Living in a Cabin is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
