Predictions for 2024

What are your predictions for packs for 2024? Not necessarily what you want but what you think we might get based on speculation and hints.

My guesses
2 EPs- I think we will get a hotel pack in 2024. The gameplay in for rent lends itself to hotels so I believe this much anticipated feature will be coming next year.
I also think we will see a bands EP. A couple years ago there were lots of smaller hints towards bands but we haven't seen it yet, I think we will finally see it next year with a K-Pop vibe.
2 GPs- tons of hints towards fairies, including from the sims own social media account.
In For Rent on of the marbles is named for AL Simhara, the Egypt inspired world for sims 3. My hope is that it's a hint towards another adventures style GP featuring an Egypt style world.
I think we may see kits slow down a bit and a few more stuff packs. I addition of the pool party and pool float in for rent seems very random to me, perhaps it's a hint towards a pool inspired stuff pack.

    I think the world as a marble is a reference to Men in Black movie.

    Anyway, there are lots of tiger references in the pack, yet there are no tigers. Of all places I would have expected to see a tiger, a tiger sanctuary would be one. If you go through the jungle, you might actually not meet one, as they are solitary animals and roam on a large territory, and at most you may find paw prints, or droppings, or your goats go missing, or you may hear them roar in the distance and you would pee your pants if you hear them nearby and if you do actually meet one you might not live to tell the tale. The tiger is elusive in the jungle, but not at the sanctuary or the zoo and you go there to actually see one.

    3 EPs - first one will be Grim Reaper, second or third will be about Vehicles/Rush Hour (like the SimCity 4 EP), and Hotels or Open For Business EP or Bands/Showtime EP
    2 GPs - Fairies one of them
    2-3 SPs - Jewellery Making is first
    8-12 Kits - first 2 are already confirmed for early 2024, those are Castle and Goth Kits

    I think the tiger stuff is because of the tiger sanctuary. I don't believe it to be hints towards future content. In the sims 2 when sims went on vacation there were 3 off screen experiences they could have based off the location. I believe the three rabbit hole experiences in For Rent are a more interactive version of those types of experiences.

    I really just want some fairies, hotels with multi functionality, and a creepy pack that has a carnival and graveyards!!

    There randomly has been alot of bird imagery though as not only the bird cage item is one, but the small tapestries that TS4 For Rent gave have peacocks and other bird species on them.

    I'm honestly confused at this point, but I am still convinced that we will be getting a fairies GP in 2024 and I think it will include unicorns because in TS4 HR debug, there is a fully solid white unicorn object that is the size of a real horse. I think they either intended for them to be in HR originally but had to cut them either due to time constraint/budget, or bc of EA's greed and they are making them paywall the magical element behind the Fairies pack to try to entice players who don't usually like occults.

    Hopefully it's Fairies, with a second helping of more Occults.

    My Predictions

    I think cars will finally come to the game in an update with possibly a car stuffpack for more car accessories and additional cars.

    A Hotel Expansion or Gamepack

    A Grim Reaper Expansion or Gamepack.

    A Love and Romance Expansion Pack.

    A Pool or Waterpark Stuffpack.

    I hope for
    - hotels (EP)
    - fairies (GP)
    - pet dragons (GP or SP)

    I don't know how likely they are. But we can always hope.

    Since we just got an expansion this month I think we'll probably be returning to one or two EPs next year with perhaps two or three GPs. Hopefully, since stuff packs have returned, we'll get two or three of those too, and as for kits... maybe a couple every quarter?

    As for what they might be?

    EA has been filling a lot of popular requests lately, so looking at what seems the most in demand:

    EP - Hotels, Multi-purpose lots/malls, Bands/Hobbies, Romance

    GP - Fairies, Grim Reaper, Bands/Hobbies, Romance, Something random to mix things up

    SP - Pools, Cars, Infants

    As for free updates:

    Cars and Spiral Staircases

    I really think Hotels, Time Travel (past or future) and Hobbies are the three themes they may pull from.

    Journey to Predictions:

    Hotel: EP -used to think this would be a GP but with how light the last few EPS have been, it's more likely to be an EP instead. Hopefully this will add in more pool objects. Casinos are also a possible theme with this.

    Hobbies: either GP or EP. Depending on how indepth they want to go with this, they could make one big EP focusing on several different paths of hobbies - music, arts & craft, athleticism, something mechanical/engineering, and something outdoor would be my first thoughts as possibilities, or they could split them up with maybe 2 to a GP.

    Time Travel to the future - EP or GP. Depending on how the hobbies are done, this could be a second potential EP but also could be small enough to be a GP to make many people happy.

    Time Travel to the Past: GP - in another thread I mentioned with Horses in and the Medieval kit coming next year, a time travel to the past EP seems less likely. I proposed a Renaissance Festivals/Fairs type of GP instead.

    Fairies: GP - like with other occults getting a Game Pack is enough here.

    So my predictions here end up being

    Hotel - EP
    Hobbies - EP
    Time Travel (either past or future but not both) - GP
    Fairies - GP

    To account for my own personal bias, Definitely want hotels, hobbies, and something like the Renaissance Festivals/Fairs or Journey to the Past. No real interest in Fairies or Time Travel to the Future.

    SP or Kits no idea. It's all very random here. I'd hope for some more Decades kits...but who knows.


    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.

    Other than the Castle and Goth kits that have been announced, I have no idea what to expect. I think the biggest hole in the game is the lack of an African world. Recently, at the high school, I am getting some African teens. I am hoping that this means a trend towards fewer blonde Asians and more Africans even if they too are blonde. LOL.

    I am really curious what comes next. I know some people hate long waits for already announced packs, but I really like to know what to expect.

    I wish the Castle kit was a stuff pack or game pack. If we are getting a Castle kit, that probably rules out anything more in depth for that theme, which is disappointing.

    We know that we'll get the two kits people voted on somewhere between January and March first quarter. That's a given.

    I'm hoping for a water parks sp and a bathroom sp. On the latter we got a bathroom kit but it was mostly clutter. I'm hoping a bathroom stuffpack will focus on new showers and tubs especially a large walkin shower and multi shower heads.

    I wish the Castle kit was a stuff pack or game pack. If we are getting a Castle kit, that probably rules out anything more in depth for that theme, which is disappointing.

    I'm hoping it's the opposite situation. For example, we got that country kitchen pack shortly before Cottage Living, and it seems like those b/b items may have been extra assets that were cut from the CL pack. Similarly, considering how far in advance they work on EPs and even GPs, if they knew they were working on something with a historical theme and would likely have unused items, that might be why they included the medieval build kit for the vote in the first place.

    We need more game packs which I predict we will at least get one, hopefully fairies. I have a strange feeling we will get three expansions, one based on the grim reaper, one based on hotels/resorts and one based on cars/going to work or school maybe. I feel like we will also get cars, preteens and a pool base game update in the new year. I also think we will get loads of kits, two stuff packs with one being a jewelry making one. I personally want an amusement/water park sp or a bathroom sp with functional hair dryers, walk in showers, combs, dental floss, deodorant, a plumber career etc.

    I'm always happy to see occult or spooky stuff. I'm really excited for the castle and goth kits, those are both things that are right up my alley. :')
    I would really love a pack that resembles Dragon Valley from TS3 in some way. That was my favourite DLC ever.

    I agree, No Occults usually means No Money from me, I vote with my Wallet and my Wallet tells me to buy Occult Content and Not Boring Mundane IRL stuff.

    We will probably get the goth kit and castle kit unless they want us to vote on the items, then it might take longer.

    Apart from that, probably a hotel EP but I’m not sure how well it will work.

    I've seen in-game hints for cars, bands, and birds. I really really really want drums this year. Really really.

    I think we'll have a lighter year than 2023. My prediction: a fairy GP, a bands EP, and some kits.
