Announcement: The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs arrives on November 10

MORE EXCITING NEWS! And this time it’s really exciting! Electronic Arts just announced The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs as the next big expansion pack for The Sims 4. This game will be released on the 10th of November this year. Check out the announcement below with the first information, pictures and a trailer.

The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs is Coming this November!

The announcement you’ve been waiting for is here! It’s finally here! You knew it was coming. We knew it was coming. And with every delighted fiber of my being, I can now officially tell you that we’re in the midst of finishing the development of The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs* right now, and it will be available to play on PC and Mac worldwide on November 10, 2017.

We’ve been working on this expansion pack for a very long time, and my handlers had to restrain me so I wouldn’t spill all the beans. But, I’m going to spill some beans…

Create A Pet has returned, and it’s more powerful than ever. Search for a massive amount of cat and dog breeds, or mix any two breeds with just a few clicks to create the perfect mutt. But what about painting?! Whether you’re adding a few spots, adding a spot to the nose, or using Stencils to paint more complicated patterns, customizing your pets has never been simpler! Oh, and we have costumes for cats and dogs. (Which yes, means your dog can go swimming while dressed as a shark.)

Once you enter live mode, you’ll see these are the most expressive, interesting, and distinct pets we’ve ever made. Cats will hide from dogs by standing on the fridge and peering down at the lowly humans. Dedicated owners can train their dog to perform a series of increasingly complicated tricks, or walk them around the all new world of Brindleton Bay to chase birds and stretch their legs. Traits make every pet truly distinct, but only the best pet owners will recognize their pets’ fears, desires, and more.

Once you have your puppy trained and the cat feeder all programmed, have your Sims purchase the local Veterinarian practice to start work on Monday. That’s right! You can own a Vet Clinic, hire the perfect staff, diagnose illnesses and perform surgeries to improve the wellness of the neighborhood’s pets (and earn a few Simoleons).

We’ve been so eager to share this expansion pack with you, and it’s almost here. Lean over, scratch your own pet behind the ears, and start imagining the stories you’re going to tell with your Sims and their new four-legged friends. The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs will be here in just a few short months and we look forward to sharing more information with you soon.

Blog: Learn All About Character Values in The Sims 4 Parenthood Game Pack

Are you ready for a new blog about The Sims 4 Parenthood Game Pack? Read all about character values below.

Learn All About Character Values in The Sims 4 Parenthood Game Pack

Hey Simmers! We don’t expect you to fully join the family without knowing more details about The Sims 4 Parenthood Game Pack, which is why we’re here today to discuss Character Values.

Young Sims growing up are still trying to figure out how to become productive adults and their Parents are there to help guide them down the right road by instilling strong Character Values. Or, if your Sims are more ambivalent in their parenting, their children’s weak Character Values will manifest into their (probably miserable) adulthood. What’s so great about this feature is that it represents how your Sims play, and there’s so much diversity in the outcomes that you can play The Sims 4 Parenthood Game Pack for generations.

We’re going to discuss how your Sims can guide (or ignore) their children in a future blog, but today, we want to discuss Character Values. Specifically, the outcome. There are five different Character Values, each with a positive and negative outcome. The five Character Values are Manners, Responsibility, Conflict Resolution, Empathy, and Emotional Control.

As soon as Sims age up from Babies to Toddlers, their Character Values appear in their Simology panel. When Sims age up from Teenagers to Young Adults, their Character Values disappear and the Sims are given permanent Traits that reflect their upbringing.

The Character Values are representations of your young Sims activities. As they perform activities that are positively associated with a Character Value, it’ll increase their positive access. If Sim parents encourage and praise these behaviors, that will also increase it. However, when Sims perform negative activities that are negatively associated with a Character Value, or a parent praises these activities, it has the opposite effect.

How about an example?

Let’s say a Sim mother wants her child to have good Manners. She might teach her child to Say Please and Thank you, or Set the Table. And she’ll likely discipline any bad manners her child exhibits. But perhaps, you’re more interested in a young, ill-mannered rogue? Your Sim’s child may start Swearing, or will wantonly burp and fart around the household. And if not curbed, these can have a permanent effect!

Let’s continue this example. Let’s say this child becomes a teenager, then a Young Adult. Their Character Values are set! If the mother didn’t curb the negative behaviors, the child will gain the Bad Manners Trait. This will unlock new socials, like Point Out Flaws, for one. The Sim will have Whims to Swear, indicating their personal desires to act with bad manners. They’ll also change their autonomous behavior, such as preferring Rude interactions, or failing to clean the dishes.

But, perhaps the mother did invest her time into creating a well-mannered child? Then, they earn the Good Manners Trait. Sims with this Trait always clean up dishes, act politely when introducing themselves to others, and never act rudely on their own. They build Friendships more quickly and, if they have to fart, they only do it in certain circumstances…

Beyond this, all Character Values lead to new Chance Cards catered to Sims based on their Traits – which means you’ll be making tough choices for your Sims throughout their lives based on their upbringing. It’s exciting and full of humor, unexpected twists, and is the perfect opportunity or new stories.

Character Values are such a great Sims feature. They’re the perfect combination of serious and silly consequences based on your choices and the stories you tell. With five Character Values, and two Traits for each, there is so much variety in how your Sims grow up, which means you can play The Sims 4 Parenthood Game Pack for so many generations.

What stories will you tell? Which bad behaviors will your Sims scold? What behaviors will they praise?

These choices, and more, are yours to make when The Sims 4 Parenthood Game Pack ships worldwide on May 30, 2017 on Origin for PC and Mac.
