Note: The new Sims 4 Game Pack has been revealed and is set to be released on 1 June 2021. The Sims 4: Dream Home Decorator is the new Game Pack.

The Sims 4 have announced a brief overview of the game’s ‘Summer Line Up’ with more details set to be revealed during a live stream on 18 May 2021. Summer for those in Northern Hemisphere, obviously. We’re feeling you here down south in the winter chill.

A new Sims 4 Kit, Courtyard Oasis, will release on Tuesday and there’s a whole lot more for players to look forward to – including a Game Pack and a new Expansion Pack – all set to be released from May to July.

Players can also look forward to a Virtual Block Party event to celebrate Pride, three base game updates and will “rock out at The Sims Event of the Summer”.

The exact dates for the new content and events were not revealed with Monday’s announcement, but there were some teasers for the upcoming DLC.

New Game Pack for The Sims 4: Creative career included

While there has been plenty of speculation that the next Sims 4 Game Pack could include werewolves, Monday’s announcement gave little away, simply saying “Snag a cool new career with a creative new Game Pack”.

That does not rule out werewolves as a possibility – some players have speculated that it could be some sort of Teen Wolf combination to allow for the inclusion of bands. With a reference to ‘rocking out’ featuring prominently, that theory might gain some momentum ahead of the official announcement.

Being in a band would certainly fit the criteria for a ‘creative’ new career.

Another expansion pack coming to The Sims 4

While a new Sims 4 Kit and Game Pack had already been confirmed, the Summer Line Up also revealed that there is a new Sims 4 Expansion Pack in the works, likely to be released in July.

The only details about the new Sims 4 Expansion Pack that was shared on the Summer Line Up announcement was the a brief line about “Bond with nature in this charming new Expansion Pack”.

One theory suggests that this could somehow bring farming to the game while adding fairies s an additional occult and expanding on existing Plant Sims.
