    350 swatches ? That joke, it should be in the game since 2014.

    I won't accept it as a decent content drop.

    Well, there's monthly drops in freeplay to take into account. Good for them I guess.
    It's kind of sad that I have to point out that anything I say is only just my opinion and may be a different one from someone else.

    Still waiting for a Barrier to entry just like we had in The Sims 3 and The Sims 2:

    What? We've had plenty of content drops so far.

    I guess the content drops are gonna be more equal across all platforms then I thought. I figured PC/Mac content would take up the majority, but it's looking like that won't be the case since we're nearly in June with only a rumored EP coming soon (and possibly a patch).

    Either that, or the 2nd half of the year is gonna be hectic and filled with a large amount of drops really close together (which wouldn't be so bad tbh), but who knows.

    • A White Shelf
    • A Teaser For A Black Door
    • Collaboration of A Overpriced Overrated Fashion Company That No One Asked For
    • A Fix For When They Broke Custom Text (mods appeared blank or not rightly lettered or had ....)
    • Nothing in May

    It was for Mobile, Freeplay, Console, and PC those 20 'content' drops. Yet that's it for us.
    1. The Sims 2
    2. The Sims 3
    3. The Sims 4 (5 years later its decent)
    4. The Sims 1

    No free content in August... 6 months later I've got serious doubts about this number.

    dont they consider mobile a part of content drops?

    cause its most likely we're gonna get maybe two content drops early in the year, maybe a stuff pack if we're lucky, and a gamepack, that covers 4

    Mobile games do count in that number so the question is how much stuff did Freeplay and Mobile get. FP had several different themes and events added this year?

    We'll possibly get some more holiday stuff in December (I saw SGMorgan mentioning egg-nog on twitter so maaaaaaybe), something for the anniversary in January. Doubt we'll get any new packs before April though.

    In all that 20 content drops I would have expected something interesting, valuable & complexe enough to make me return to TS4 (an overhaul on personalities for example 🙄) but nope! Boring things. Ok it's cool to be able to assign a computer/bed to a sim, but this is not the kind of features that I except making me play this game for weeks.

    "We’re set to deliver 20 new content drops and expansion packs this year for our thriving Sims community on console, mobile and PC."

    Depends which part of the article you focus on.

    Just it clarified The Sims 4 will get over 20 content drops no matter what is done for mobile.

    So Mobile games don't count in that number.

    Just it clarified The Sims 4 will get over 20 content drops no matter what is done for mobile.

    So Mobile games don't count in that number.

    The article summarizes an interview with the CEO and COO of EA. One of them mentions mobile, the other just says TS4. It's very possible that the latter simply forgot to specifically say "mobile" when speaking. Or wanted to say "The Sims" and added "4" out of habit. Or lied, depending on what you find more plausible.
    Even the article title mentions mobile.

    If we get 8 more content drops before April, I personally won't be mad. If we don't, I won't either because yes, the mobile games are part of the Sims franchise and to me, it's very likely that the 20 content drops mentioned in this interview did include those games too.

    @darrenfroggy

    Maybe you're right, recently one of them said TS4 was shipped 7 years ago... in 2012...
