The Sims 4’s latest recreation pack, My Wedding ceremony Tales, is now accessible for PC and Mac by way of Origin and Steam, PS5, PS4 and Xbox consoles. My Wedding ceremony Tales introduces extra enjoyable and private methods to have a good time your Sims saying “I do.” Forward of the pack’s launch, My Wedding ceremony Tales producers held a digital demo to indicate off what Simmers can sit up for.
Till now, weddings within the Sims 4 felt a bit flat. After two Sims obtained engaged, gamers had the choice to plan a marriage occasion or instantly elope. In case you selected to elope, your Sims would instantly change vows and rings on the spot. In case you deliberate a marriage occasion, one other display would pop up and you’ll select a location, friends, a caterer and a musician for the massive day. Since I’ve gotten extra into legacy gameplay and storytelling, this format felt missing, even once I set my wedding ceremony as a goaled occasion that yields rewards.
“We wished to be as broad as potential and inform as many tales as potential,” stated Sims 4 producer Dave Miotke, aka SimGuruNinja, in the course of the demo.
My Wedding ceremony Tales seems to be prefer it’ll provide a much more dynamic, detailed and customizable wedding ceremony expertise for Sims and gamers. The brand new pack introduces gamers to a couple premade households dwelling in Tartosa, a brand new in-game world with picturesque areas to tie the knot.
Now gamers can plan pre-wedding occasions like engagement events, rehearsal dinners and “Bach” events (a gender-neutral model of bachelor and bachelorette events). These particular occasions will embrace new choices to provide toasts, speeches, dance, reduce the cake and toss the bouquet. Gamers may also construct a marriage occasion — select an officiant, a Sim of Honor, a hoop bearer and flower friends (the sport’s gender-neutral model of flower lady).
These new choices additionally work in numerous worlds, so you are not restricted to extravagant weddings in Tartosa. There’s additionally an choice to get hitched at Tartosa Metropolis Corridor in case your Sims aren’t into all of the pomp and circumstance.
Wedding ceremony planning contains selecting your particular garments. My Wedding ceremony Tales gives extra attire and tuxedos with a variety of conventional and trendy choices. Buy a bouquet to toss on the reception, taste-test to seek out the right cake and pick a topper. The brand new pack lastly differentiates a marriage cake from a birthday cake with completely different colours, sizes and styles.
One in all my favourite elements about My Wedding ceremony Tales is the group management choices. Anybody who’s performed The Sims is aware of the frustrations of attempting to corral occasion friends. Creating a gaggle helps, however the brand new pack gives useful instructions for friends to take their seats for the ceremony, stroll down the aisle, collect for the bouquet toss, throw rice, eat and drink. There’s additionally a brand new sluggish dance possibility so your newlyweds can have a correct first dance.
In true Sims vogue, this pack embraces range with wedding ceremony choices. As an alternative of a one-size-fits-all occasion, My Wedding ceremony Tales says it will have choices to host conventional Chinese language weddings with customary tea ceremonies with household, for instance. The pack additionally contains crimson attire worn in Hindu ceremonies, in addition to the choice to incorporate henna tattoos. Wedding ceremony garments embrace fashionable pantsuits in case your Sim is not a fan of attire. It is refreshing to see gender-neutral variations of wedding ceremony roles and occasions.
The pack’s reveal trailer advised the: displaying off friends really sitting in the course of the wedding ceremony, the couple strolling down the aisle and dancing on the reception — and getting the choice to resume their vows later in life.
