While we do not know all that much about what the game pack will offer players, we do have an official trailer and a bunch of screenshots.
We have watched re-watched the Sims 4 Star Wars trailer over and over to try and spot anything that might suggest to us what we can expect.
The world looks stunning and while we are almost certain (not confirmed by Maxis) that Sims will not be able to live in the world, one interaction in the Batuu bar caught our attention.
It appears as if these two are playing a new game we have not seen in The Sims 4. Are they taking bets and gambling?
Hrm…. certainly looks like there is some currency exchanging going on here.
One of the big concerns about the new Sims 4 game pack is that the replay value might be limited, because it seems as if there will be a story line (with different outcomes) to follow for Sims on their journey to Batuu.
But having interactions like these that Sims can partake in when they are not in the alien world will certainly help warm some players to the idea of a pack that, on the surface anyway, looks like a great big advertisement for the Disney theme park.
