This morning brings a deeper look into the gameplay for the upcoming Sims 4 expansion, Star Wars: Journey to Batuu.
Last week brought the announcement that fans would soon be able to live out their Galaxy’s Edge dreams in The Sims 4. Today, EA and Maxis offer a better look at the gameplay in the new expansion; detailing exactly how gamers will be able to tell their own Star Wars adventure.
As a new visitor to Batuu, Sims can socialize with locals to understand why Batuu is unlike any other planet, and learn more about the forces fighting for its control. The Resistance, First Order and scoundrels aim to secure the upper hand of the Black Spire Outpost, and it is up to players and their Sims to determine who will succeed. Sims can choose to support Rey and Vi Moradi as part of the Resistance, pledge allegiance to the First Order under Kylo Ren or look to earn more credits with Hondo Ohnaka and the scoundrels. As Sims embark on exciting missions, they’ll increase their reputation, unlock iconic artifacts, equipment, new outfits and critical story missions that will influence changes to the world and tip the balance of power.
In addition, players can create a coveted lightsaber, customize their very own droid sidekick to help on missions, fly iconic starfighter ships or even try out their hand at romancing a Stormtrooper. When Sims return home, they can even bring back some of these items, like their lightsaber or droid, as well as new artifacts, decor and recipes inspired by their travels. They can also play a game of sabacc, or host a playful lightsaber training session.
The Sims 4 Star Wars: Journey to Batuu launches for PCs and Consoles on September 8th.
