    I think it will be Into The Future.

    I doubt they will make a future pack after adding robots in University and drones and sleeping pods in Get Famous.

    That makes sense, but I still feel like we're missing things. Even though I wasn't a fan of time-travel in The Sims 3. I still think we should get more future-themed items/features/interactions somehow.

    I really hope it's either Farming or a Band/Showtime type of pack.

    My biggest dream would be a generations pack, but I doubt we'll get that.

    I can't believe we still don't have a proper Singing Career..Yup! We need showtime 😂😭

    Me too! I didn't really care about time-travelling but I loved the futuristic stuff in Sims 3 and of course the plumbots. Robotics is the main reason I'm extremely excited about DU. I'm planning on turning newcrest into an Oasis Lading type of town, populated by robots and aliens disguised as people.

    As much as I'd like a future pack, I think it's unlikely since they've been adding a bit of futuristic content in various packs.

    I think there is a decent chance we could well get a Futuristic EP, and soon. Last year, before leaving the TS4 team, Sim Guru Grant spoke about a futuristic pack. Granted (ha) it was after people had been asking for a pack set in the past and he wanted to know what era as we already have some stuff from different eras and of course the past could mean 1000s of years of different things. But ... I think the idea has at least been mooted and therefore could possibly be in the works.

    i doubt it, he didnt even know stuff about discover university since he has been working on something else. given it takes a year for an expansion to go through development i doubt he has little say on whats going into development next.

    hardly anyone has been requesting a future EP to make it a priority anyways, its either been farming, generations, or showtime from what i've seen.

    The next 3 packs that I am DYING for in this order are GENERATIONS expansion, then a hobby game pack, and then a farming country life expansion pack!

    I think there might be a big hint on origin for some members as we speak. I pre-ordered University, so it automatically initiated download & install when I started up my game. When it finished there was a message banner across the top of my Origin home tab: “It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s ChampagneBurst!”. I think it might be a hint an upcoming pack is Superhero related and here’s why:


    That message on the same day the latest expansion, when it finishes installing said expansion. I think it’s too big a coincidence.
    I am 90% sure it wasn’t there before. Did anyone else get it? Is it on everyone’s origin even if you haven’t bought University? Are other people who pre-ordered also/the only ones to get it?

    I’m not into EA other games but I checked and none seem like they’d fit with a superheroes expansion; most don’t even have expansions.

    Superheroes haven’t been included in any of the Sims franchises, just some items in a Sims 3 Stuff pack only. BUT it’s also the most obvious pop culture area that fits perfectly with the Sims that is missing.

    They gave us Vampires because they are still so big. They gave us other beings with special powers. So having no Superheroes is literally weird when you think about it, and looks more like a gaping hole the more you think about it.

    EA/Maxis can’t have missed how huge Superheroes are right now, especially after the last Avengers movie dropped. We are experiencing a Superhero boom. They aren’t just for comic book readers anymore; they are now mainstream. So superheroes are everywhere in current media : movies, tv shows, YouTube etc because mainstream means massive consumer base. Superhero media is also multiplying at a huge rate which means it is still in huge demand.
    So the superhero boom is generating tons of money - EA/Maxis would be stupid to miss out on this gravy train. I don’t think they are stupid.

    Also sorry for comment. I would have made a new thread but I’m just a long time lurker so can’t. I would really like to find out what everyone thinks if anyone thinks I might be on to something and can make it into a new thread for me
  • LMcGELMcGE Posts: 215 Member
    Perhaps they are going to do something with Marvel, as they already have with Disney, and have superhero costumes in the game. I'm sure people could tell me all sorts of wonderful things being able to be a superhero would bring to the game, I'm just not seeing it right now. I wait to be enlightened though. The more there is in the game to do and for diversity, the better. :smiley:

    I've had that message on my Origin before, way before University was even announced. That text string is randomized and will show a different message each time you log in. And given it shows up in Origin's home page, not the TS4 game loading screen, it's almost definitely nothing to do with Sims/Maxis; Origin users who don't even own a Sims game most likely see it from time to time too.

    As far as superheroes, as a separate thought, I think it's unlikely but not impossible. I don't think the team would be able to deliver on the features a hero pack would require, and that would probably keep them from going down that road. But who knows?

    Remember, they added horse coding in the game last year and this year. I think its going to be a Farming EP at some point next year.
  • NikkihNikkih Posts: 414 Member
    Superhero and villains could be a pack at some point, you can study villainy at university abit random isnt it 😂, theres alot of superhero clothing and theres alot of new superhero films out at the moment, who knows could be a possibility and its something different

    I want farming next, and I think it would be a great theme for including activities for all ages, plus the tidbits to make each life stage a bit richer.. and of course some of those activities would need to have appeal also outside the farm.

    I don't think this means anything. As someone pointed out, those text strings are randomly generated each time you open up Origin.
    As for the next EP, I think it'll be something like we got for TS2 with Free Time, Farming, or some other pack that's really out there and unexpected, e.g. Strangerville.

    Time Travel to Medieval times & to the future. Where the Sims can choose to live there instead of the present. Also, No Cellphones in the past Please.

    Maybe Showtime EP , many people are waiting for band (I need drums and Acrobat career).

    I'm also still waiting for Firefighter career.

    Pretty sure it’s farming EP with horses. :)

    But I’m also hoping for a winter GP soon with hotels. :)

    I think it'll be farming, but I'd MUCH prefer something like TS2 FreeTime or another holiday world, or maybe even a theme park/carnival.

    God, I would love a Free Time type pack. The recent stuff pack poll really drove that home for me when I wanted, like, all the stuff listed under Arts & Crafts.

    That said, I don't think it will be. I honestly have no idea what will be next, which is a sort of interesting place to be.

    Generations, romance, hobbies and country/farming all sound good to me
