Pools are back in The Sims 4
In a move that might surprise anyone who hasn't been paying attention to The Sims news, EA Maxis have released a major game update via Origin. The patch adds a number of features, including the much-missed ability to build swimming pools for your Sims.
As well as the new pool-building tools, the update also sees the return of ghosts after a Sim has died, and is rounded out by swimming outfits and a set of Star Wars costumes (although no Darth Bikini, sadly).
I know, I know. We were all expecting it to be an expansion pack. Perhaps EA have changed their ways? Perhaps we'll be seeing many more major features added to the game for free? Perhaps they just wanted to avoid a PR nightmare? You be the judge.
