The Sims 4 has a new update that features an expanded Create A Sim with new gender customization options. For the first time ever, players can customize their Sims without the gender boundaries that were previously set in place.
It is now possible to create a Sim of any physique, walk style, and tone of voice. Over 700 pieces of content that were previously only available to male Sims, or only available to female Sims, has now been made available to all Sims – regardless of gender. This includes clothing, hair, jewelry, and more.
The announcement on the Sims 4 website says:
The Sims is made by a diverse team for a diverse audience, and it’s really important to us that players are able to be creative and express themselves through our games. We want to make sure players can create characters they can identify with or relate to through powerful tools that give them influence over a Sims gender, age, ethnicity, body type and more.
In order to make use of this new Sims 4 update, a person must have an internet connection and all of the Sims 4 game updates. If you have all of those things, then the new update is free. The update includes content from The Sims 4 base game and previously launched packs.
