Whether or not you’re a fan of the most recent films, it finally feels like there are some good Star Wars games coming out. Last year’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was a fantastic return to form, and the upcoming Star Wars: Squadrons looks set to continue that trend this holiday. Then in 2021 we have LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga to look forward to – it’s good news for franchise fans.
One thing we hadn’t expected is a The Sims 4 crossover expansion, but EA’s putting the license to good use next month with the Journey to Batuu expansion. “The Sims 4 Star Wars: Journey to Batuu is set on the remote planet on the edge of Outer Rim territories, inspired by Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland and Disney World,” reads the press release. “Sims will experience the authentic sights and sounds of the Star Wars universe, including the Millennium Falcon and DJ R-3X’s interstellar hits at Oga’s Cantina.”
You’ll also get to “embark on exciting missions” and buddy up with heroes like Rey. Honestly, it all sounds pretty fun, but it’s such a shame The Sims 4 is so poorly optimised for the PlayStation 4. Nevertheless, you can check out the trailer for the new content above.
Never cared for Sims 4, but this actually might make me give it a try.
@tatsumi It should be the best game ever, but it runs very poorly on PS4.
@get2sammyb No problems, I got a high end PC with Origins Premiere Access
@get2sammyb It has performance issues and bugs on high end PC.... I would know, I’ve put more time into it than I should have.
I know this is getting trashed online, but this is like the ONE thing that could bring me back to Sims 4, even if just for a little while.
I’m both repulsed and intrigued by this. Just when you fee Star Wars couldn’t sell out any more you get this. But I loved galaxy’s edge so much I think it’s my spirit home lol
I’ve never bothered with Sims, what do you actually do? Just interested now because of the Star Wars theme!
@Jaz007 Disappointing. I get that it's a complicated game with lots happening, but I wish they could clean it up a bit on all platforms.
@BigP You kinda just do whatever you want. Build a family, give them all roles and jobs, make friends, etc etc.
There's no real set goal, but there's absolutely loads to do. You kinda set your own goals.
@get2sammyb Thankyou! Definitely going to look into this when the Star Wars theme is out.
@BigP Basically it's a life sim, but cutesy and corny compared to other games like Second Life.
@get2sammyb I have a few main characters I've sunk an obscene amount of time into but after a while these saves specifically got so laggy and bug-ridden that it basically became unplayable.
Sad really. I ignored this article for days precisely because I know, while this DLC sounds great, I can't do much with it unless I start from scratch. And then how long will that last?
