The Sims 4: New Game Pack icon LEAKED on official site

The icon for the next Sims 4 Game Pack has been leaked on the official Sims website. Or so it appears. In a screenshot shared on the game’s website with details on how to enter the Spark’d challenges, there is an icon visible in the Game Pack collection which nobody has seen before.

Earlier in the year, the game’s developers shared a six-month road map, detailing what Simmers can expect in the coming months. The sequence was for the release of an expansion pack, stuff pack and a game pack. The first two have already been released (Eco Lifestyle and Nifty Knitting). The game pack is yet to be revealed, however, developers did say at the time that the game pack will be “something never done before [by the franchise]”.

Speculation has been rife about what the next game pack will be – ranging from something time travel/sci-fi related to a romantic pack or even a casino or destination wedding pack.

The Sims 4: New Game Pack icon… what is it?

Below is the full screenshot of the icon which appears to have leaked. It was still visible on The Sims website at 13:51 SAST (GMT+2) on Sunday, 2 August.

A German Sims website, Simsblog.de, recreated the icon in a higher resolution – but it’s very much a Rorschach test for Sims fans.

The image could be a ski slope (on the right) with its cabins to the left. Or it could be something futuristic – an alien world of sorts. Or it could be coins.

Sims 4 Game Pack hints in the Future Cube

The Sims 4 developers have been dropping hints about content to come through the Future Cube this year. Many of those have already come true, but there might still be some hints on what Simmers can expect.

Following the Sims 4 base game update that came before Nifty Knitting, the Sims have been obsessing over the Future Cube again.

One Sim Guru even posted an image of the cube to Twitter, leading Simmers to get their Sims to ask the Future Cube questions. It was discovered that some answers that appeared previously remained and two new ones have been added.

These are the Future Cube clues that remain.

  • I see a gnome wielding a frozen rabbit riding atop a llama into battle against an udder’ly impressive foe.
  • Without a doubt, that thing we talked about will come to be, as all of the signs are pointing to the answer that we agreed upon in our last discussion.
  • Your uncertainty, certainly shall become certain, under certain situations in no uncertain terms.
  • The future is soon™.
  • Your future looks pixelated.
  • Somebody is definitely going to get exactly what they want.
  • The most popular destination to elope is not yet known.
  • Side by side. Sure. Spaced out. Yup. Stack em up? Hmm.

The last answer seems to hint that bunk beds will be coming to The Sims 4. The “spaced out” and future references, though, could hint at something a bit more other worldly, especially when the “frozen rabbit” and “foe” is taken into consideration.
