The Sims 4 has introduced over 1,000 new swatches into the game that allows players to choose from even more item variations.

In the latest Sims 4 update, EA has added 149 new color options to the base game, which totals 1,200 new variations altogether. There are far too many for us to include here, however, the latest update’s patch notes has them all listed.

For those who are not well versed with The Sims 4, this basically means that items such as furniture and curtains have now received additional color and design options - meaning players will be able to co-ordinate their Sims houses much easier, or not so easily considering how much choice is now involved. 

Alongside the new swatches, it was also revealed that The Sims 4 is introducing two new international kits. The first kit, Fashion Street, was inspired by the vibrant and high-contrast patterns found in Fashion Street, Mumbai, and features new clothing items made in collaboration with fashion expert Shruti Sitara Singh.

The other, Incheon Arrivals, was inspired by the always busy Incheon airport in South Korea. For this kit, EA enlisted the help of content creator Jazzy Cho to create a range of stylish but comfortable outfits for your Sims to hypothetically wear aboard a flight in or out of the South Korean city. 

Prior to this kit, EA also announced a Sims 4 Spa Day expansion pack which brought the likes of face masks, yoga, manicures, and other self-care rituals into the game. Not only this, but it also added a new 'Inner Peace' aspiration and 'High Maintenance' trait for your Sims.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
