The Sims 4 High School Years – Expansion Pack announcement

Written by Annabelli_22

So the rumours are true, the next expansion pack will be high school themed.
A few weeks ago rumours started that there would be a high school EP coming. And today the official trailer dropped for it. Release of The Sims 4 High School Years is July 28th 2022

So here is the official description of it:

Be a good (or bad) student, join a club, start a trend, and make the most of being a teenager with The Sims™ 4 High School Years Expansion Pack*! Navigate iconic teenage experiences like attending prom, pulling pranks, experimenting with identity and trends, and forming friendships and rivalries at extracurricular events. There’s a lot to do before graduation – teen Sims can attend class, interact with teachers, and even earn money as style influencers or streamers!

The pack trailer really shows the American style of high school, with cheerleading, American Football, proms. But it also shows it’s focusing on the teenage life in general.
With after school activities, hangout spots and even a carnival.
It looks like high school is no longer a rabbit hole, but that you can play an active role in your teenagers life.
Get into detention, ask your crush to prom. and who know what else. Perhaps even sneak out at night through the window (to me it’s unclear if this is actual gameplay, or just a set up for the trailer. I hope it’s actual game play)

Base Game update

Along with a new pack, there is usually also a base game update. This doesn’t necessarily mean new free stuff, but in the trailer (and screenshotted below), we can see a Sim shaving, but what is also interesting, is that the Sim has back hair. Body hair has been confirmed on Twitter by the SimGurus to be coming as a base game update. So it’s save to assume that before July 28th, we will also be getting body hair!
