The Sims 4 Discover University has been confirmed and is set to be released on 15 November 2019 for PC and Mac. The trailer looked pretty amazing, but it didn’t answer all the questions about the pack.
And if you’ve been playing The Sims 4 for a while, you will know that there are always questions. Even when the pack has been dropped, there will be questions. That’s just the nature of The Sims.
The Gurus are usually quite responsive on Twitter – when they’re trying not to hide details of a new pack, that is.
With the pack confirmed and the trailer out, Sim Gurus have started revealing a few questions about The Sims 4 Discover University on Twitter. As you might expect, they’re not revealing everything, but it does offer a bit more insight into what’s to come.
The bad news is that they’re keeping most of the good stuff for the live stream with the gurus on 8 November. That’s a long time away, though, so Simmers are desperate for any sort of info.
We’ll keep one eye on the Twitter threads if any more questions are answered. For now, though, here’s what we know.
