Following last month’s stream that announced The Sims 4 Pack Refresh, details regarding The Spa Day update have been officially confirmed by EA, with new traits, aspirations, and features like nails on the way!

While we’ve been aware that The Sims 4 is receiving new changes to remix existing content, Spa Day is the first pack to receive the ‘Pack Refresh’ treatment (pun intended).

Many had suspected that the game‘s previous Game Pack would be getting an update after a listing on EA’s own site appeared to have let the massage oil out of the bottle, and it didn’t take too long for The Sims Team to officially confirm the update with a trailer and developer stream.

The Sims 4 NPC/Townie overhauls

But the work won’t stop there. Instead, Maxis also confirmed that Townies are also in line for a refurbish in the form of skin tones that will be more varied.

“Hundreds of Townies have come to light since the first Sims game launched 21 years ago,” Ashton said. “It’s about time for a tiny overhaul. We’re currently in the process of updating NPCs in the Sims 4 including visuals and their lore.

That was Ashton’s response to a question about lighter skin tones in the Sims. Maxis are getting ready to update hundreds of individual Townies, so this update may be coming later down the road.
