While The Sims 4 continues to divide players worldwide, EA has announced that there’s a new expansion coming to the title during the summer month period they’ve dubbed ‘Summer of Sims’. Here’s everything we know so far. 

If you call yourself a true gamer, there’s no doubt that at some point in your virtual travels, you’ve taken to the bizarre world of The Sims.

A staple on most 90s and millennial game shelves, The Sims lets players unleash their creative (and sometimes chaotic) side. It also offers the opportunity for some fun crossovers, such as these Pokemon and Overwatch examples.


It turns out, though, that instead of importing other games into The Sims this summer, there’s a new expansion pack alongside other fresh content to sate your cravings. Entitled ‘Summer of Sims’, here’s everything we know so far.

The Sims 4: Summer of Sims start date

The Sims 4’s Summer of Sims doesn’t have an exact release date, but if you check out the bottom right corner of the image above you’ll see that it’s set to debut in May and last until July. 

Importantly, it does note that this is “subject to change at EA’s discretion,” so these dates aren’t set in stone.

All we know at the moment is what’s been tweeted from The Sims’ official Twitter account, and there isn’t very much information to go off of.

For avid fans, though, some of the devs will be taking to the Inside Maxis Livestream on May 18 to discuss the expansion and more.

You can watch this via the official Sims Twitch Channel, with all of the fun kicking off at 11AM PST/ 2PM EST/ 7PM BST/ 8PM CEST.
