The Sims 4 just released a free update to their Create a Sim mode that eliminates gender boundaries in character customization. So now your Sims can have any type of physique, walk, or tone of voice regardless of their gender.
The more than 700 pieces of content that had previously been tied to a specific gender will now be available to all Sims. So that means all the hair, clothing, and accessory options will be available to all created characters. Now female Sims can have short hair and wear blazers and male characters can have long hair and earrings.
Maxis posted the news on their official blog with this statement, “The Sims is made by a diverse team for a diverse audience, and it’s really important to us that players are able to be creative and express themselves through our games. We want to make sure players can create characters they can identify with or relate to through powerful tools that give them influence over a Sims gender, age, ethnicity, body type and more.”
The company said they were excited to see all the different Sims players create, and they encourage everyone to have fun and be creative.
