There's a new Sims 4 expansion pack coming. We already knew that, but at least now we know when it will be announced.

Update: The new Sims 4 expansion pack will be Snowy Escape. Read more about the teaser and watch the trailer premiere here.

The Sims 4 have revealed that the next expansion pack for the game will be revealed on 20 October on the game’s official YouTube channel at 8:00 Pacific Time… that’s 17:00 South African time or 15:00 GMT.

The ‘announcement’ of the announcement (yeah, how meta) was made on the game’s welcome screen on Monday.

Sims 4 New Expansion Pack Date Announement

The expansion will be the tenth for the popular simulation franchise and the second for 2020. The Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle was the latest expansion pack released in June.

The announcement will be made on the very same day that the latest Origin sale – which is offering over 50% off some Sims 4 titles – comes to an end.

What’s the new Sims 4 expansion going to be about?

It’s a snowy themed pack – we know that for sure now.

As with all announcements about new Sims 4 content, there’s always a bit of speculation going on. Previously, we’ve had a look at some old community surveys to see if there might be some hint about what to expect.

We’ve also been quite curious about the new building shells that were added to the game in a patch – wondering whether there might be a ‘create your own town’ kind of expansion pack.

What we do know for sure, though, is that the pack will not be about free babies, cars or bunk beds. Oh well, we’ll just keep building those completely useless garages for in The Sims 4, then.

Until then, we’ll keep our eyes wide open for any clues or hints that might give us an early inkling about what the next expansion pack might be. Dag, dag!
