It''s time to get back to high school with the Sims 4 High School Years expansion kit, which will be released on July 28. The thought of doing those years over again makes my palms sweaty. Those years were frustrating, not to mention acne ridden and I personally wouldnt do that again in real-life. But getting to send some of my Sims to high school sounds like a bad game. Didn''t forget to go prom!
In a release, your Sims will attend Copperdale High (definitely not Riverdale) and tell personal stories of self-discovery and drama, according to High School Years lead producer George Pigula. An announcement trailer demonstrates the highs and lows of those teens years, from walking the halls of Copperdale High and dealing with awful locker stench to football games and cheer practice.
Sims will learn to juggle school and extracurricular activities, form lifelong friends, and experience big events, according to Pigula. With the addition of a Trendi app, players may even develop their own fashion likes & dislikes, according to Depop sellers. High school is an incredibly stressful time, and we wanted to give players the opportunity to create and customize their own personalized high school experiences before they reach young adulthood.
Teen Sims will experiment with classes and clubs, but they will also hang out at local boba spots or go on dates at the Plumbite Pier, which appears to be an adorable fair right out of a music video. Of course, theres a Copperdale High prom which means you will get a second chance at nailing that promposal and picking a dress that doesn''t make you cringe years down the line.
Sims also worked with Depop to expand in-game fashion. I would have loved this dress in high school and then sell them on the in-game Trendi app. The clothes were designed by prominent Depop vendors such as Bella McFadden (iGirl), Lapoze McTribouy (Sooki Sooki Vintage), Selena Williams (Selenas Shop) and others.
We will not know until July how true this experience is to us on the back. However, fans have already identified a detail that make the experience even more than Superman S we were all drawing:
