‘The Sims 4: Get Famous’ Expansion Announced

‘The Sims 4: Get Famous’ Expansion Announced

Become a big star and live the glam life in the latest expansion pack for The Sims 4.

Lifestyles Of The Rich And The Famous

EA announced that The Sims 4 would be getting a new expansion pack called “Get Famous.” In this pack, your Sims can rise to fame by becoming a big movie star or even an online influencer.

This isn’t the first time that The Sims developers have allowed players to make their sims celebrities. In The Sims 3, you could have your sim gain star levels. The higher the star level, the more exclusive places they could enter as well as the more paparazzi would follow them around.

However, what was lacking was the actual lifestyle of being a celebrity. Although there was an acting career track, it was what is known as a “rabbit hole” career. Meaning, your Sim would disappear into a lot in town where they would go and work for the day. This time around it seems as though you will actually get to join your Sim onset and maybe even control the scene being recorded.

Other notable interactions that look to be coming in this expansion are the ability to sign autographs, blog/document your life online, and awards shows where your Sims will get rewarded for their roles in films. Returning from past iterations will be exclusive parties that only famous Sims can attend as well as being chased by adoring fans and the hungry paparazzi.

Grant Rodiek, Senior Producer of The Sims 4, stated:

With The Sims 4 Get Famous, players can achieve their wildest dreams of becoming a celebrity and all of the perks that come with fame in The Sims 4. From rubbing elbows with A-list celebrities at the studio, to star-studded VIP parties in the hills, Sims can now have it all. The development team has added a slew of fun, humorous, and lavish new gameplay content to ensure that fans, and their Sims, can experience the luxury lifestyle as they play with life, this time in the spotlight.

 

EA has also partnered up with YouTube singer and online influencer Baby Ariel to create a promotional campaign for the Get Famous expansion pack.  A specialized Sim version of her will be found in the game for players to interact with. She will also have one of her songs in Simlish featured as well in the game’s soundtrack. The big message the developers wish to convey is that players will be able to emulate people like Baby Ariel in-game by utilizing social media to make their Sims famous. She stated:

I’m thrilled to be partnering with The Sims 4 Get Famous, where players can follow their dreams of making it big as their Sims skyrocket to fame. Over the past few months I’ve worked closely with the development team as we crafted my Sim, and I can’t wait for my fans to meet me in-game along their ride to stardom!

Fans that want to check her Sim out early can do so by tuning into TODAY on NBC October 11th at 3 PM BST.

A new map will be added to The Sims 4: Get Famous called Del Sol Valley. Mirroring real life places like L.A. and Hollywood, this city will be the focal point for Sims looking to play the fame game.

Other notable additions will be new clothing, costumes, furniture, and other decorative pieces based around the fame life. The Sims 4: Get Famous releases November 16th on PC.  You can preorder the game here and check out the trailer below!
