The Sims 4 Will Now Let You Add Your Furry Friends to

first_imgStay on target In The Sims 3 you could have dogs and cats as members of your family, but until now there’s been no way to get them in The Sims 4. Fortunately, at Gamescom Electronic Arts has announced that three years after its release, The Sims 4 will finally be getting pets.An upcoming expansion called Cats & Dogs will add a ton of new features to the game that centers around creating and taking care of pets. You’ll start the process by creating your fuzzy friend in the ‘Create a Pet’ tool. Your animal’s age, breed, and personality will all be adjustable. You’ll also be able to mix breeds and design your pet’s coat and features.Once you get into the game, you know you’ll just have to accessorize. In a completely new feature for The Sims, Cats & Dogs will add a number of different clothing options and pet-centric items so your pupper or kitter can get pets in style.However, owning a pet is a lot of responsibility. You’ll have to make sure they stay happy and healthy. Unlike their The Sims 3 predecessors you won’t be able to control your pets directly, they’ll have their own personalities and desires. You’ll need to make sure your avatars tend to their needs and keep them happy and healthy.As with your human Sims, animal Sims will have an aging process. One of the sadder aspects of the new expansion is that you’ll get the joy of seeing your puppy or kitten grow into an adult, age, and eventually pass away. In this case, I hope there are cheat codes because I don’t need that kind of stress in my life.There will also be a new occupation line added with this expansion. Players can choose to become veterinarians. Going down the road will let you start and run your own vet business and help the community’s animals. You can open your business in a brand new locale that’s added with Dogs & Cats: Brindleton Bay.The new neighborhood will contain pet-centric activities like obstacle courses and fetch, and you’ll be able to adopt a stray you find there to be your new fur-covered roommate.Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but you’ll be able to pick up The Sims 4: Cats & Dogs on November 10 on Mac and PC.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
