Sims 4 to Release ‘Cats & Dogs’ Expansion

Electronic Arts has announced that The Sims 4: Cats & Dogs will be released in November, allowing users to add cats, dogs and horses to their favourite Sim families.

“The new tools for customizing pets are so flexible and powerful, players can really create anything they can imagine.” (Lyndsey Pearson, Executive Producer)

This particular expansion has been hugely anticipated by players for some time. EA Games, however, did not comment until they confirmed the release this week. It is scheduled for early November, amongst a variety of new games that will hit shelves in time for Christmas.

The Sims 4 initially struggled upon its release in 2014. Critics claimed the game lacked innovation and quality, which goes against The Sims brand. However, the expansions Get to Work and Outdoor Retreat seem to have boosted user satisfaction. I have no doubt Cats & Dogs will do the same.
