The Sims 4 is Getting Two New Eye-Catching Kits

The Sims 4 Everyday Clutter

The Sims 4 will get two new kits, The Sims 4 Pastel Pop Kit and The Sims 4 Everyday Clutter Kit, arriving next week.

You will have to purchase the kits – they aren’t free – but that’s how The Sims 4 is making its money these days. In case you missed the news, the base game is now free on PC, Xbox and PlayStation but any extra content has to be purchased. And, believe us, there’s an awful lot of extra content.

So will these two kits be worth having? It all depends on your personal preferences and the design choices you force upon your hapless Sims. The Pastel Pop Kit is, as the name suggests, heavy on pastel colours but it’s also a collaboration with Sims YouTuber Plumbella. The included items are inspired by the 60s and 70s and are designed to lend Sims’ home a softer feel.

The Everyday Clutter Kit, on the other hand, “encourages players to create spaces that look loved and lived-in”. You know, in case leaving plates on the floor wasn’t enough. You can add, amongst other things, coffee cups, jewellery boxes and what appear to be fishing trophies. We say “appear”, because we’re pretty sure they’re just Big Mouth Billy Bass knock-offs.

Both kits will be available this November 10th, across both PC and console, likely priced at £4.99/$4.99. You’ll need the basic The Sims 4 game but it’s now free to download across all platforms. And if you’re unsure what content is worth having, check out our list of the Best Sims 4 Expansion Packs.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
