The Sims 4 gets epic wood, greatly reduces career options

the sims 4 epic wood

Sorry miss, you can never be an athlete.

Welcome to another fascinating edition of good news/bad news about , courtesy of the advertising campaign. This episode follows our last foray into the weird state of The Sims 4, featuring modding support (yay) and a rather small game world (boo.)

The good news this time is … okay, a little tenuous. It’s mostly a bizarre little trailer about one woman and her love for ‘epic wood’ (their words, not mine.) In short, it suggests that if you fancy doing so you can design your entire Sims home around a wooden theme. This probably doesn’t offset the ditching of Create-A-Style and the inferior-sounding colour wheel that replaces it, but hey. Wooden stuff is nice, right?

In somewhat worse news, here’s the full list of careers (and accompanying paths) that will be available for your Sims in The Sims 4 base game:

  • Entertainer: Musician/Comedian
  • Writer: Author/Journalist
  • Painter: Master of the Real/Patron of the Arts
  • Secret Agent:  Diamond Agent/Villain
  • Criminal: Boss/Oracle
  • Astronomer: Space Ranger/Smuggler
  • Culinary: Chef/Mixologist
  • Tech Guru: eSport Gamer/Start-up Entrepeneur

Hope you didn’t have any plans to send your Sims into business. Or make them athletes. Or doctors. Or encourage them to join the police. Or basically get involved in any of the now missing career options from previous Sims games.

As for the latest word on the size of worlds and neighbourhoods, here’s a concise post on NeoGaf that sums up the size of each map portion. It’s not too encouraging.

Still, wooden stuff eh?
