Next The Sims 4 update could add werewolves and pronouns

Maxis has started teasing the next The Sims 4 update, and it looks like things could be going in a very wolfy direction - but also customisable pronouns too

A prideful werewolf person could feature in the next The Sims 4 update

A teaser video featuring the next The Sims 4 update roadmap for May or June seems to suggest that the management game will add werewolves. Furthermore, fans speculate – with good cause – that the update will also finally add customisable pronouns too.

At the moment, the only way to play as a werewolf in Maxis and EA’s popular building game is with the use of The Sims 4 mods. Both The Sims 2 and The Sims 3 received expansions that introduced the lovably lethal lycanthropes, and now, after eight years, The Sims 4 could be getting them too.

The roadmap trailer (below) features the theme of exploring when the sun goes down, a strange creature hunting in the alleys, and – less subtly – something howling at the moon. Fan website SimsCommunity found other hints too, like the update appearing on the official Danish website asking if players were planning to “grow fangs”. While the English tagline is “seize the night”, the German version is apparently “unleash the beast”.

Furthermore, the page for the update featured what seemed to be a character wearing a trans flag pride shirt. While this render has been removed from the English sites, it still can be viewed on international pages. As SimsCommunity also points out, Maxis confirmed earlier this year that customisable pronouns were being added to The Sims 4’s character creator at some point this year. While it’s only speculation at this point, this could arrive at the same time as the werewolf update. Guess we’ll find out soon.
