What an exciting time to be a Simmer! The Sims 4: Growing Together has just been released this March 2023, yet The Sims 4 is already launching another batch of new kits this month, starting with the Greenhouse Haven and the Basement Treasures. In this article, take a look at everything you need to know about these new Sims 4 kits, plus check out the fresh April update for the game!
Hello to Two New Kits for The Sims 4!
Last April 11, 2023, the official account of The Sims tweeted a teaser about an all-new hot update coming to the Sims 4, as well as four new kits that will be launched from the months of April to June. Then, just this April 18, the team behind The Sims 4 excitingly unveiled the first two kits that will spice up our game—the Greenhouse Haven Kit and the Basement Treasures Kit. Read on below to learn about these new game additions!
What is the Greenhouse Haven Kit and What are Its Features?
According to an official article from The Sims 4, “The Sims 4 Greenhouse Haven Kit provides a Sim with a serene retreat from the hustle and bustle of the busy world. Sims can create a peaceful and serene greenhouse in their home with lively and versatile gardening decor.” With the Greenhouse Haven Kit, we think that it’s really interesting how our Sims can now further focus on building their own peaceful dwelling for their plants in the game. Albeit much of the details are still a mystery to us at this point, so far, here are the following features we know of about the Greenhouse Haven Kit!
1. Create All-New Greener Spaces
With the Greenhouse Haven Kit, your Sims can dabble further into pursuing their passion for gardening. The kit provides a set of refreshing new pieces that are perfect for creating a lovely greenhouse. This dedicated space can then be filled with plenty of flora and decorated with intricate details that will invigorate your Sims’ lives.
2. Bask in the Sunlight with Refreshing new items
Thanks to our fellow Simmer SimMatically, we get to have a special sneak peek at the new items for the Greenhouse Haven Kit. From the looks of it, it seems like we’ll be having a new set of windows, some plant pots and crates, an exhaust fan, and all-new gardening clutter, among other things.
3. Revive the Neighborhood with All Things green
The greenhouses that your Sims will be able to create through this new kit can totally enliven the neighborhood they live in, contributing to the rise of more environment-friendly and ecological spaces. If your Sims have the Green Fiend trait from The Sims 4: Eco Lifestyle, then this kit is definitely for them!
What is the Basement Treasures Kit and What are its Features?
“The Sims 4 Basement Treasures Kit encourages Sims to create the classic hand-me-down basement room, challenging Sims to deviate from the pristine and embrace the imperfect with grungy and aged decor. From Grandma’s old, worn furniture to thrifting finds, every piece has a story and potential for a new life,” is the official description for this kit in the aforementioned article of The Sims 4. Much like the Greenhouse Haven Kit, there isn’t plenty of information available for the Basement Treasures Kit yet. But as we did our little research, we found a handful of interesting features about the whole new kit. So, here are the things you can expect about the Basement Treasures!
1. Dwell in Comfortable Spaces from the past
The Sims 4 Basement Treasures Kit provides quite an exquisite touch to the game, as this is the first time that we Simmers will actually be introduced to the availability of aged and worn-out objects. It’s amazing to note that such objects can provide the game with immense charm, as the concept introduces nostalgia, comfort, and familiarity into the home.
2. Enjoy the Warmth of Old and Loved Objects
Simmer SimMatically also revealed a glimpse at the new items for the Basement Treasures Kit. If you take a closer look at the set of objects, you can see charming new inclusions such as old models of televisions, worn-out chairs, pre-loved mirrors and picture frames, and a whole lot of other interesting clutter that will give your basement that warm, familiar vibe from the past.
3. Have a Trip Down Nostalgia Lane with Old Mates
Creating a basement for The Sims 4 sounds like the next perfect thing that we can accomplish in the game, especially since deeper ties with friends and family have been established among Sims through The Sims 4: Growing Together expansion pack. The idea of spending quality time in the basement with familiar faces and old friends evokes such a precious and sentimental feeling, and we think that the release of the Basement Treasures Kit will successfully capture this.
Plus! Two More New Kits Coming to The Sims 4
Mark your calendars now, because the Greenhouse Haven and the Basement Treasures will be available starting April 20, 2023! And, if you are already pumped up for the release of these awesome kits, then you have to prepare your heart further because more good things are coming to us, Simmers! In their recent news article, The Sims 4 promised to launch a total of four kits from April to June, thus, we can expect that two more kits will be introduced in the game in the next few weeks!
Also: An All-New Game Update this April 2023
Apart from the launch of the said two new kits for The Sims 4, we have also received a fresh update for our game this April 2023. The Sims 4 Direct Communications tweeted on April 18 that the recent update “has several bug fixes, including fixes for infant food preferences & chefs not entering restaurants, as well as new underwear options, & new decorative spots for bathroom items & more.”
The changes that will occur to the game through this patch update are massive, as it will include plenty of fixes not just with the base game, but with the existing expansion and game packs as well. To find out the entire list of changes in the game due to the April 18 update, head on to this Sims 4 patch note article.
