The Sims 4 celebrates the heart and soul of the Sims themselves, giving players a deeper connection with the most expressive, surprising and charming Sims ever in this single-player offline experience.

The Sims 4 encourages players to personalize their world with new and intuitive tools while offering them the ability to effortlessly share their creativity with friends and fans.

The Sims 4 brings all new ways to play with life; powerful new creative tools, all-new Sims with enhanced emotion and intelligence, and a gaming experience where players control the mind, body and heartof their Sims to bring their stories to life like never before.

Stuff Pack dreams are about to come true for fans of The Sims 4. Maxis announced an exciting new partnership between The Sims 4 players and the Maxis Development Team where, for the first time ever in The Sims, players will help create an all-new Stuff Pack. Starting today, players can participate in the first round of voting to help select an overall theme for the new pack.

By voting on The Sims blog, Sims community members will help guide the pack through each of the critical stages of development. Maxis will be asking players the same questions they ask themselves during the process. While development at Maxis has always been collaborative and influenced by community feedback, the development of the new Stuff Pack will be transparent in a brand new way. Players will have the chance to be included in choosing the specific features through numerous rounds of voting, and participating in a new dedicated section of The Sims forums, while gaining insight into the meetings that take place during development.

The full scheduling for community voting includes:

  • Theme Vote (April 3rd - April 6th): Select the overall theme for the pack. Every part of the pack will be influenced by this key decision.
  • Art Style Vote (April 10th – April 12th): Players will select between proposed art styles for the pack, which will guide Maxis concept artists in the objects and clothing they create.
  • Objects & Clothing Vote (May 18th – May 21st): Fans can browse through the concept art developers have drawn for the pack, and select their top choices to help determine which objects and pieces of clothing are included.
  • Feature Vote (June 23rd – June 26th : Players get to select the top gameplay feature(s) they want to have included in the pack.
  • Pack Icon Vote (Fall): Players can peruse different icons and help select the one that will appear in the pack's box art and within the in-game catalog.
  • Pack Title Vote (Fall): Fans will help select a title that best summarizes the pack's atmosphere and content.
