The Sims 4 update to include 'difficult' family relationships

The Sims 4 upcoming update will include ‘difficult’ family relationships, something that I think we can all relate to.

There is no question that The Sims is one of the most popular simulation games in the video game industry. After all, there’s a reason that it’s been ever-popular since its inception on PC way back in 2000.

Since its initial release we’ve had multiple sequels, tons of expansions as well as a seemingly endless flurry of content updates. Its continuous support is what keeps devoted fans coming back year after year.

While labelled as a life simulator, The Sims is also very tongue-in-cheek and fans can make it as realistic or as silly as they choose. However, its most recent update looks to be the most relatable yet by incorporating difficult families.

As reported by The Gamer, the Growing Together DLC looks to bring the family drama into our Sims 4 life when it arrives on 16th March. Growling Together will allow you to create any family members you choose and how you interact with them, well, that’s of course totally up to you.

When creating your dream or nightmare family member, you can choose their dynamic types such as Close, Distant, Difficult or Jokesters. However, as with all interactions in The Sims 4, that relationship dynamic can change organically depending on your in-game choices and actions.

“Settle in San Sequoia, a bustling town with historic roots, and live a rich family life full of sleepovers, drama, and self-discovery,” reads the description in the Growing Together reveal trailer.

“Let your parents move in with you – or don’t – and see how that affects your relationships. Navigate a midlife crisis and come out with new personality traits. Meet a stranger and have instant chemistry – or instant friction. There’s a lot to experience, together.”

In a most recent update to The Sims 4, the popular life simulator became even more inclusive by incorporating trans customisation options.

The Sims 4: Growing Together has an RRP of £34.99/$39.99 and will be available for PC/Mac, PlayStation and Xbox.
