The Sims 4 High School Years Expansion Pack Arrives This Month

The Sims 4 High School Years Expansion Pack

The Sims 4’s latest add-on, The Sims 4 High School Years Expansion Pack will send you back to high school.

It might seem like a bit of an anticlimax after the life-sim’s latest pack let you become a werewolf, but we’ve got our fingers crossed for some kind of “teen wolf” style in-game event. You can expect the expansion to be skewed towards an American view of secondar.., sorry, “high” school, but there should still be potential for some silliness.

“Teen Sims will learn and grow, express themselves and transform their lives throughout the roller coaster of puberty,” reads the blurb, though we should hasten to add that’s not a real roller-coaster. Yes, your Sims can chill out at a pier which does feature a ferris wheel, but you can’t condense all the uncertainty of growing up into one theme park ride.

It’s a bit of a shame, really – you could get on at one stop, scream for a few minutes and then, when you get off, find that it’s all done and over with. Still, getting drunk, going on dates, purchasing fashion items from real life designers and – as a last resort – going to actual class should keep you busy.

You can find out more about The Sims 4 High School Years Expansion Pack here, and get your hands on it when it lands on PC and console (it’ll require the original The Sims 4) this July 28th. That’s assuming, however, that you can stomach the price.

Wait, what? The bad news is that while The Sims 4: Werewolves costs $19.99, this pack will set you back twice that, costing $39.99 (or your local equivalent) across all platforms. Yes, it’s meatier than your average The Sims 4 add-on but given that the main game can also be had for around $19.99, it may a bit too rich for some The Sims 4 fans’ blood.
