    Sul Sul!

    From bright patterns to bold animal print, our all-new maximalist interior aesthetic will elevate your Sims’ fashion and lifestyle with a ‘more-is-more' take on a timeless, chic style. Reinvent the art of layering to create “wow factor” and surround your Sims with the things that you love! Place them all strategically together, like art, eclectic decor, furniture, anything at all. Make a statement as you renovate, redecorate and remodel with exclusive rewards in the latest update of The Sims FreePlay!

    Base Game Improvements
    Removal of Housebound & Improvements to the Needs System

    Say goodbye to ‘Housebound’ Sims when their Needs are low! Sims now undertake actions faster or slower depending on their mood! Previously, whenever a Sim’s Needs were too low, they would head back to their own house and become stuck at home until you sort out their Needs. This prevented players from using their Sims to complete quests, hobbies, work shifts, Live Events and much more.

    We thought this was terrible! Our team has created a better way of improving the gameplay experience for low needs! Now, instead of being ‘Housebound’, Sims with low Needs are now ‘Sad Sims’, who can now go anywhere and do anything, however their actions will take a little bit longer to complete.

    Inspired Sims (full needs motives and green sparkles around them) will continue to earn bonus Simoleons/XP but will also do ALL actions MORE QUICKLY - including crafting in Live Events, work shifts and more! We’ve added visual cues in the ‘Sim Tracker’ and ‘Portrait’ to passively communicate this change – Inspired Sims will now have a green icon, Happy Sims will have a white icon and Sad Sims will have a new red icon. Pay attention to your Sims' Needs and get your Sims Inspired today!

    Base Game Starting Outfits

    We’ve added dozens of over 50 new free base game outfits for adult Sims in Create-A-Sim! Explore the new customizable range of hairstyles, facial hair, glasses, outfits and improved randomized Sim options that showcase our cultural and diverse styles to create Sims that better represent you!

    Hispanic Heritage Month
    To show our appreciation for our passionate Hispanic player community during Hispanic Heritage Month, we’ve created a free pack with build buy items so you can celebrate in game with your Sims! The pack includes a vibrant painted dining set with colorful table and chairs, plus decorative painted pottery vases from The Sims 4!

    The build buy items were designed in collaboration with the guidance from our internal resource group SOMOS EA so our game team artists could bring to life a new authentic range of décor that is inspired by diverse Hispanic cultures. Check out the online store to redeem the items from 15 September!

    The Sims 4 Pride Paintings
    We’re celebrating Pride all year long with the help of The Sims 4, and artists Jupiter Stevens-Hill, Ashley Lukashevsky, and Mohammed Iman Fayaz! The pack is full of paintings in multiple frame colours and styles created by LGBTQ+ Simmers, from The Sims 4 Pride Month celebrations in June this year. The art can be placed in your Sims’ homes and celebrates close friendships, support networks and embracing the entire spectrum of queer identities.

    Painting #1 Stride with Pride by Jupiter Stevens-Hill (@MidnightFox452)

    This piece commemorates the values of diversity and inclusion of this historical and important event in a fun and colorful composition matching the spirit of the celebration!

    Painting #2 Untitled - Ashley Lukashevsky (@Ashlukadraws)

    This piece is the portrayal of the power of an embrace between two people, displaying in a colourful way that their liberations are interlinked as they look out for each other and care for one another!

    Painting #3 A Recipe for Good Times by Mohammed Iman Fayaz (@PapiJuiceBK)

    Every family has their own recipe, a recipe for the good times. In every family there is some sweetness, some tenderness, some silliness, and last but not least - some love. No matter the order, it is what makes a family your family!

    Head to the online store to redeem the free pack from the start of the update!

    ‘Marvellously Maximalist’ Live Event
    Starting 16 September, the 'Marvellously Maximalist’ live event begins! The aim of this event is to collect enough resources from the Arts and Crafts Stations (found in the ‘Event’ tab of the Home Store or your inventory) to unlock all the items in this event but be quick - this event is only live for 10 days.

    As you craft your way through the event, you’ll work towards unlocking exclusive décor, outfits and build items that are anything but ordinary! The grand prize house lot is a stunning multi-level home with a high A-frame roof, second floor outdoor balcony that spans the entire length of the home, bay windows and even a backyard pool area. Inside, the wall mounted faux-zebras and matching rugs complement the ❤️❤️❤️❤️ curtains and life-size cheetah statue! Your Sims are sure to love the loud colors, patterns and textures on every surface from floor to ceiling, which are all taking center stage!

    Transform your Sim’s homes into a colorful retreat filled with interesting furnishing and combined patterned decorative accents, that prove it’s okay to break conventional interior design rules! Milestone prizes include wooden flooring, bold floral wallpaper, faux-animal décor and much more, so your Sims can feel inspired in every room of the house.

    MYSTERIOUS MASQUERADE UPDATE
    Host a fancy ball with your Sims this spooky season!

    Sul Sul!

    Trick or treat, Simmers! It’s time to experience the most mysterious Halloween party ever thrown - if you dare! Set the scene for a scare with outdoor objects to get guests in the Halloween spirit before they even walk through the door. How about greeting them by wearing the frighteningly-fun Funko Pop! Masks, or light the way with ghoulishly cute glow-in-the-dark ghost or pumpkin collectibles. When guests enter your haunted-ish house, they can dine on regal furniture, admire a spooky portrait with eyes that definitely don’t follow you around, or disappear behind a secret door in the wall! Let us carve out the rest of the ways you’ll enjoy our Mysterious Masquerade update.

    Base Game Improvements
    Daily ‘Check-In’ Rewards

    Play The Sims FreePlay every day and you’ll be rewarded for simply playing the game! We’ve created a daily rewards system so if you play daily, you’ll earn prizes! Maintain your play streak to earn larger rewards. Or, if you’d rather play at your own pace, earn ‘Cumulative Rewards’ by playing a set number of days at any time! The more you play the more you’ll earn.

    Daily rewards refresh daily at 6PM your local time. Don’t worry if you forget to claim your prizes the last time you logged in, they’ll be waiting there for you the next time you play. Prizes include premium currency, Simoleons, VIP points, décor, outfits and more!

    Click on your Sim’s mailbox on their home lot to open the new screen – click on the mailbox icon again to claim everything from both the 'Daily Rewards and Check-In Rewards' tabs automatically.

    Inventory Filtering

    We know so many of you have hundreds of items in your Sim’s inventory from accumulating almost 10 years of rewards from our events, quests, hobbies and more! We are so excited to reveal our newly designed inventory filtering system to help you find your décor and Home Store items much quicker when redesigning, renovating and remodeling, so you can spend less time scrolling through dozens of categories trying to find that ONE thing!

    In the Home Store, click on the new ‘filtering’ icon with three lines to choose your filter settings and find what you want faster! Try it out now!

    Funko ‘Funkoween’ Fun Pack

Sims can put a giant Funko pumpkin, skeleton or witch Pop! mask on their heads! Just beware - who is hiding under that mask? Plus, add some spooky shinanigans to your home with the irresistible glow-in-the-dark pumpkin and ghost collectibles to be the life (and ghoul) of the party!

Watch out for the painting with eyeballs that follow you as you walk by! Will your guests spot the hidden door in the wall as you trick or treat them throughout the night?

    Play dress up with new costumes and masks. Watch as Sims attend in ballgowns, vests and dapper ensembles – will you be able to tell who is who, in their masquerade masks as you dance the night away in the ballroom?
