The Sims 4 Head to School

Sims SchoolEveryone’s favorite simulation game, The Sims 4, is launching its eighth expansion pack of the series. Titled The Sims 4: Discover University, the long-awaited expansion pack is officially coming to PC and Mac on Nov. 15, and on console on Dec. 17, at the expected price of $40.

Simmers (like me) have been awaiting this pack for months, if not years. The Sims creators did a great job at dragging out the release of this fan-favorite, being a little over five years after the base game was released in September of 2014.

The expansion pack will feature two universities for your sims to enroll in, new activities like playing juice pong and soccer, participating in school organizations, hanging out with roommates, and studying majors such as biology, computer science, art history, and even villainy (you know, just like your average university).

The pack is also introducing bicycles to the game, but I’m not quite sure how this would work without an open world like The Sims 3 had. The disappointing loading screens that pop up every time a sim leaves their current lot will make this pack much less exciting, especially since we all want free will when it comes to fully exploring our sims’ college campus.

I’m expecting the pack to be just like The Sims 3 University, but with less content. The Sims 4 expansion packs have never failed to fall short of both content and gameplay compared to its Sims 3 counterparts. It’s also quite a ridiculous concept in many downloadable content (DLC) to charge such a high amount for an additional part of the game on top of the expensive launch price. Like with every Sims 4 expansion pack, I will be waiting for a half-off sale before adding the game to my Sims collection.
