Two of the upcoming four kits for The Sims 4 have just been revealed, and they each host wildly different content.

The Sims 4 team recently announced their plan to release four new kits and a large update, but their initial reveal of these upcoming additions was pretty cryptic. No real information was given aside from a general theme, leaving fans speculating about what possible new content could come.

The otherwise mysterious Tweet did insinuate the kits and update would have to do with making a Sim’s house feel more home-y, in a bid to have them “reclaim” their space. Many players understood this to mean that the kits would have a more decorative focus.
