Exciting news, the day is finally here. Way back in, September?, The Sims announced that they are working on making the console version of The Sims 4 compatible with Keyboard and Mouse. And today is finally that day.

At 6pm UK time the update will roll out on PS4 and Xbox One. So if you already have a keyboard and mouse available to hook up, you’re set!
But this patch will bring some other stuff too, bug fixes, new items. Below you will find some highlights, and the full patch notes can be found here.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue where terrain manipulation might crash the game when players were manipulating to close to the edge…
  • Fixed an issue where clicking various spots with terrain tools would cause an error.
  • 1st Person Mode should no longer terrify you with Sims that have missing heads. (That’s a relief)
  • Playing basketball on the Skye Fitness lot while in 1st Person Mode won’t require you to restart The Sims 4, so no more excuses for missing that 3 pointer.
  • Fixed and error when players would switch between children that were created through genetics.
  • Fixed an error when trying to place a Nightclub on a lot that is smaller than the lot that is provided.

There are a few more bug fixes that are mostly pack specific.

Have fun Simming! And we can’t wait to see if you’re enjoying the keyboard and mouse feature!
