The Sims 4 rebrand is taking place tomorrow and will reinvigorate one of EA’s flagship titles with new energy and a whole new cast of characters. The same old Sims who have been on the cover since launch are being replaced with a new crew (seen above) — and that’s not the only change.
According to a thread on the /r/TheSims subreddit, a boatload of changes are on the way tomorrow. Some of them are somewhat superficial like the aforementioned change of the cover characters. The main menu, loading screens, and plumbob (the green diamond thing that floats above their heads) are also getting a fresh coat of paint. Other changes, however, go a little bit deeper.
One of the bigger new additions is a New Create-A-Sim story. This allows you to better flesh out your Sim before entering into Live mode. The Sims 4 rebrand will accomplish this through a personality quiz, the questions of which were highlighted on the Reddit thread:
- What age am I?
- What do I most want to do on a trip to Selvadorada?
- I’ve found an ancient relic of some kind…
- What’s most important to me while selecting a place to live?
- I’ve got a pile of documents stacking up, what do I do?
- I’ve found a strange plant outside. What do I do?
- Bugs, critters, and all that?
- The best stories…
- My friend needs someone to watch their child…
- The best music…
- As a child, I wanted to work…
- It’s my friend’s birthday. What do I do for them?
- The great outdoors are…
It’s important to note that completing the quiz will lock in the traits and aspirations for your Sim and they won’t be able to be changed.
Additionally, over 1,000 objects (across multiple game packs) are going to be unlocked in the Build and Buy categories (as was seen when a cheat was used in a live stream). You’ll be able to experience The Sims 4 rebrand for yourself when it launches tomorrow, July 16, 2019. Keep an eye out for a new video on July 18 which will show off some of this new stuff in depth!
