The Sims 4 has gotten various DLC packs since launch, which have covered all sorts of aspects of a Sims’ life, but one thing they haven’t focused on much is what Sims eat and drink. Given that the kitchen is a source for great fun or disaster (oven fires are one of the most common Sim-death methods, after all) it wasn’t a huge surprise last week when a leak suggested that The Sims 4 Cool Kitchen Stuff was on the way.
Online retailer Amazon jumped the gun by revealing that a Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat/Cool Kitchen bundle would be available from October. And while EA hasn’t confirmed the existence of that bundle, the publisher has confirmed The Sims 4 Cool Kitchen Stuff pack, so you can find out more about that after the break.
The Sims 4 Cool Kitchen Stuff – Everything You Need to Know
The bulk of The Sims 4 Cool Kitchen Stuff‘s content will be cosmetic, as is usually the case the for stuff packs. It will feature new appliances and furnishings including “stylish cabinets”, “frosted glass doors”, and “stainless steel appliances”. Additionally, there will be new hairstyles and clothes for your foodie Sims to dress up in.
However, the coolest, and more headline worthy features of The Sims 4 Cool Kitchen Stuff are its ice cream maker and its dishwasher. The new ice cream maker allows your Sims to make ice cream, gelato, or soft serve in 30 different flavours and there will be various toppings too, including banana slices, whipped cream and sprinkles. Sims 4 producer Graham Nardone has also revealed that some of the “exotic” flavours of ice cream won’t melt and that if you have the Get to Work expansion pack, you’ll be able to sell ice cream in your store.
As for the dishwasher, that will help some of your muckier Sims clean up the place. And there’s also some good news about those who don’t pick up The Sims 4 Cool Kitchen Stuff – dishwashers will be available to all Sims 4 players for free in an update next week, so we’ll give you more info on that once we have it.
The Sims 4 Cool Kitchen Stuff will be released on PC and Mac on August 11, 2015. It will cost $9.99.
