Swimming pools will be added to The Sims 4 in November. When it was revealed before launch that The Sims 4 would not include swimming pools, a staple design element of the series, gamers were disappointed. EA Maxis explained that pools wouldn’t make it for release, but that they hoped to patch them in later along with other features that fans expected for the fourth Sims game. SimsVIP was able to capture a presentation in which developers announced the return of swimming pools as well as additional careers to The Sims 4. Despite speculation to the contrary, swimming pools will be added to the game for free.
As an added bonus, players have been immediately gifted with Star Wars costumes for their sims. Darth Vader makes everything better!
