One thought on “The Sims 4 Update Ends Gender Restrictions for More Immersion”

  1. I think that if EA decides to begin work on a fifth edition of The Sims, these new gender options will likely be a feature in the game at the start. That, and they’ll likely be re-implementing the color and texture customization options we saw in The Sims 3, while keeping and improving upon the current emotion system.
