Players of The Sims 4 will get to enjoy a new Scenarios mode being introduced to the game this week.
As revealed on the official website, Scenarios are a new goal-based story mode within the popular life sim. Players are given a scenario (obviously) and a goal they must achieve by the conclusion. How they reach that goal, however, is up to the player.
There’s two scenarios on offer in the The Sims 4 Scenarios mode’s initial launch. One of these is entitled Making Money and the other Finding Love after a Break Up. While the latter of these is being left for players to discover, the first sees you trying to earn one million Simoleons in any way possible.
To play the new mode, players can select New Scenario from the main menu. However, at the current time players will have to use a new household. Maxis say they intend to allow players to bring existing households into the mode in a future update.
These are just the first two scenarios too. Developers Maxis have said they plan to add more The Sims 4 Scenarios to the mode in the future. You can find an FAQ on the new mode over at the bottom of the announcement post.
Scenarios are available now as a free update to The Sims 4 on Xbox, PlayStation and PC. A new garden-themed Blooming Rooms Kit DLC will also be available for purchase on November 9.
TODAY! 🥳 Players can experience goal-based stories called “Scenarios” where a player’s choice impacts the outcome😆
