Although New Year’s Day celebrations are over, some people still celebrate the beginning of a new year. The first roadmap for The Sims 4 just dropped. It gives us a glimpse at what we can expect in the future.

Quick glances reveal that there are two Kit packs and a game pack. There were also announcements about community collaborations and some surprises. Unfortunately, the announcement did not include any information about a new Extension Pack (the previous one was in July 2021 with Cottage Living ) nor any new Suff Packs. These have been out of production for some time. However, this does not mean we won’t receive a new Expansion Pack or Stuff Pack.

Let’s look at what we can expect, and let’s start with the Game Pack. This pack claims to “throw the party for love”. It is not clear what this could be. Maybe something for Valentine’s Day or a DLC that is wedding-themed, similar to The Sims 2 Celebration! Stuff? This is possible, as Game Packs offer a lot more content. Maybe The Sims 4 will see a revamp of weddings? Maybe we will see the return to bachelor parties as in Generations?

The announcement of two Kit Packs is next. Kit Packs offer content on a smaller scale than other DLC in The Sims 4. These packs usually include a few new objects, such as Country Kitchen, or a new type of gameplay (such as Bust the Dust). According to the roadmap, these packs will be “vibrant”, and will feature “fierce design”. The roadmap doesn’t specify if the pack is about clothes or objects. More information should be available soon.

There’s much more to the announcement of new packs. A roadmap stated that there would be community collaboration both inside and outside of the game. Collaborations are not new to Sims 4. Members of the community can create free content, including artwork and objects, within the game. It is fascinating to see what The Sims 4 has in store for us this time.

This is not all. A free update also revealed new global food. Although it is not yet known what the food is, this food will bring Sims closer together. This could be new dishes from around the world, special food for celebrations, or something related to the Game Pack.

The roadmap also revealed that there are some surprises on the horizon. Although it didn’t provide much detail, more information should be made later in the year. These will hopefully be welcomed by Sims 4 players.
