EA sent out an announcement for the upcoming patch which will be released today:

Sul Sul!

We’re releasing a patch today that includes some cool Star Wars™ goodness!

The free Update will include three new costumes to celebrate May 4th: Boba Fett, Darth Maul, and Jedi Master Aayla Secura. The costumes look really cool, and we think you’ll love them.

There’s a lot more to the patch than those costumes. This patch has a ton of bug fixes and improvements. The full patch notes will be posted on the forums soon, so you’ll be able to get the full run-down there.

May the Fourth Be With You!

Earlier today I had the honour of being part of a conference call, along with many other fansites, creators and YouTubers from the Sims community. Rachel Franklin and Ryan Vaughan officially announced the first expansion pack for The Sims 4: Get to Work!

This expansion is an awesome mashup between Open for Business and Ambitions, but for The Sims 4!

It comes with three new careers; Doctor, Detective, and Scientist.

Each new career comes with its own venue. So as a Doctor, you'll be working at the hospital. And as a Detective you will be working at the police station. You can see your Sims at work and take active control as well.

And each career also has a unique new object. Like the surgery table. And an interrogation table!

I wonder what Gladys has done to land herself in so much trouble?

For the first time ever in Sims history, as a Doctor, you can actually help deliver babies! I can't wait to see that in my game!

As a detective, you get to track clues and solve really big cases. CSI: The Sims. XD

The Scientist career is amazingly exciting. Ryan said it is the coolest object they've ever made. And it is a mix of a 3D printer and J.A.R.V.I.S from Iron Man. I guess we'll see more about that soon. Will your Sim do good or wreck havoc?

Not only are there three new careers, but your Sims can have their own businesses as well! Want a clothing store? You can have your own clothing store. Want an art gallery? You can! Do you want to have a bakery instead? It's all possible. You can sell pretty much anything (from the catalog, I don't think we can sell Sims :P )

There are two new skills which can be used for your businesses as well; the Photography Skill and the Baking Skill.

More information and screenshots about The Sims 4: Get to Work will be released in the following weeks. Hang in there people! The expansion pack will be released in April 2015.

As for the conference call: Thank you EA/Sims team for having me. It's a tad hectic with so many people on a call. But oh so exciting! I am happy we got a chance to give feedback directly to you.

If you are reading this and would like to give feedback/ask questions to the Sims team (be polite!) feel free to mention me on Twitter, or post something on our Facebook page. I'll be happy to pass along the message. Happy

As we get ready to celebrate 15 years of all things The Sims, we wanted to share a few of our favorite fun facts. Do you have a favorite Sims fun fact? Why not post them here for all of us to enjoy?

It Started with a Toilet

The first object ever created for The Sims was a toilet featured in the 1993 prototype. A variety of ways to interact with the toilet were introduced, from using it to cleaning it. According to the team, it was also the only object in the original game that different genders used differently—male Sims tended to leave the seat up!


When is a Language not a Language?

Sims speak Simlish, an expressive emotion-filled language that defies translation. In creating Simlish, the development team experimented with fractured Ukrainian and Tagalog, the language of the Philippines. Inspired by the code talkers of WWII, The Sims creator Will Wright also suggested Navajo. Over the years, fans have learned to recognize some words like Dag Dag for hello and nooboo for baby. My personal favorite is Sul Sul.


Funny Money

Sims have their own form of currency called Simoleons. The currency originated way back in early eighteenth-century Britain, where sixpence were often slangily called a Simon. Simon mixed with the much more valuable French gold coins called Napoleons became Simoleons!


Play it your Way

The appeal of The Sims is that there is no “right way” to play. Some players spend all their time building cool houses or following the personal lives of their Sims, while others like to create chaos wherever they go. Are you one of those players? If you have ever trapped your Sim in a room without a door, then the answer is probably yes!


Before they were Stars

The Sims has always sought out rising musical talent. Paramore, Katy Perry, Lily Allen, Fun, Bastille plus many others all recorded tracks in Simlish just as they were on the brink of mega-stardom. Wonder who the next megastar will be?
