Over the last few weeks, The Sims 4 team have copped a lot of flak. Between the issues surrounding lack of diversity with the game’s skin tones and the release of the new Star Wars game pack – a pack very few players wanted – it has been a rough ride.
Sometimes, this criticism has descended into downright nastiness, but it appears there will be a forum for players to discuss some of their concerns more formally soon.
While things like free the baby objects are a bit complicated, an invite has been sent out to select players for upcoming feedback sessions.
First report by The Sims Community website, this feedback sessions will be held on two different dates, 22 September and 2 October.
The invite was sent to players who had previously signed up to the EA Playtesting programme. The sessions will be an hour-long and only 15-20 Sims players will be invited to participate.
At the time of writing, the new Sims 4 feedback session was not listed on the official EA Playtesting site yet, but the website did share a screenshot of the invite which read as follows:
No further details were available at the time of writing, so it is not clear exactly what playtesters will be asked about in the feedback sessions.
It is also unlikely that any of the details from the feedback sessions will be shared by those who participated, but everyone will hope that the players who are selected provide valuable feedback to improve the game we all love so much.
