The Sims franchise, among other things, is known for its spectacular death sequences.
Now, one of the most popular in-game factors behind death in the series has arrived in The Sims 4. This has been re-introduced in the game courtesy of a new update that has been rolled out for free. Ever since the first installment in the series was launched, players have been looking for innovative ways to kill their Sims. The gaming community frequently sends out requests for fresh death scenarios to be introduced in the game.
Unlike several other games, a death in The Sims 4 has a certain amount of gravitas attached to it. There are also times when somebody’s death makes you chuckle owing to the funny circumstances that led to them losing their life. A while back, a fan shared an interesting story pertaining to the death of a Sim. The incident revolved around the Sim making predictions about their own death through a painting.
In the last couple of years, The Sims 4 has brought to the fore several innovative ways for Sims to embrace death. A large number of players are of the opinion that killing Sims in The Sims 4 is much tougher than eliminating them in any of the other games in the franchise. One of the major reasons behind this is the fact that the items available to kill Sims are available in limited quantities in The Sims 4.
