In a galaxy far, far away…
There was a Simulation Game and a universe, one day, they will collide — and so happens The Sims 4 X Star Wars: Journey to Batuu Game Pack is coming this week.
Journey to a new world, Batuu – also known as the world from Disneyland’s Galaxy’s Edge theme park, your sims can now explore and adapt the light (or dark side) to their lives.
The Sims 4 Star Wars: Journey to Batuu Game Pack
Release Date: 8th September 2020 (Australian Release)
Available on EA Origin, requires The Sims 4 Base Game to play.
Create your Sim’s unique Star Wars™ story as you explore the remote world of Batuu, from Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland® and Disney World®, in The Sims™ 4 Star Wars™: Journey to Batuu Game Pack*. Will your Sim join up with the Resistance, fall in with the scoundrels, or enlist with the First Order? It’s up to you! Build up your Sim’s reputation to unlock missions, purchase a lightsaber or droid, and meet iconic Star Wars™ characters like Rey and Kylo Ren.
Experience the Edge of the Galaxy — Your Sims are definitely not at home anymore. From the Millennium Falcon to the bustling cantina and unique attire of Batuu, Sims will be surrounded by the iconic sights and sounds of Star Wars™. When your Sim returns home, bring back new decor and recipes inspired by your travels, play a game of sabacc, or host a playful lightsaber training session.
Create Your Star Wars™ Story — The Resistance, First Order, and scoundrels are fighting to control Batuu, but your Sims’ actions determine who will succeed. As Sims undertake challenges and special missions, you’ll tip the balance of power. Unlock rewards like starfighter access, new outfits, and critical missions on Batuu. And who knows? Maybe you’ll find your Batuuan special someone!
Unite with Iconic Characters — Completing missions earns your Sim reputation points, and as you rack them up, you get closer to meeting the leaders of the forces on Batuu. Possibilities shift depending on your Sim’s actions—will you choose to support Kylo Ren in his efforts to uncover the Resistance base or join Rey and Vi Moradi in the fight against the First Order? Whichever path your Sim chooses, Hondo Ohnaka and his scoundrels are always there if you need a few extra galactic credits.
Get Your Own Lightsaber and Droid — Explore Batuu to find parts for the most coveted Star Wars™ artifact: a lightsaber. Collect every piece to construct a blade that’s all your own. Then invite other Sims to spar in lightsaber challenges! Or visit the Droid Depot and purchase your very own droid to help on your adventures… and maybe zap a few Sims. You can even bring your droid friend home with you so you always have that plus-one for parties!Taken from EA Games Origin Client
First thing that comes to mind is; How is this going to be integrated into the existing Sims 4 games? Will there be Storm Troopers marching up the street? I hope they have a way to keep it “canon” as possible. I am a bit of a fan of Star Wars, not as much as others — but I want to play The Sims, not a Star Wars Game.
Worst case scenario, you can just disable the pack, or don’t buy it at all!
As part of the EA Game Changers Network, I will be able to give you a detailed review on the day of release for you to decide if this pack is for you, or if you might be giving this one a miss.
