The Sims 4 Holiday Celebration Pack gets a Diwali-themed update. The DLC, which is free to download for players on Windows PC and Mac, already includes items such as ugly Christmas sweaters, Christmas lights, and a Christmas tree.
The Holiday Celebration Pack arrives ahead of several other major Sims 4 content drops, with The Sims 4 Cats and Dogs expansion pack also set to arrive soon.
The Sims 4 Gets Free Diwali Content Update
This week The Sims 4 Holiday Celebration Pack got a brand new Diwali update to celebrate the Hindu festival of light. The pack, which can be downloaded from the “Your Collection” section in the game’s main menu, introduces nine decorative objects and nine Create a Sim items.
These decorative objects include: Diya (clay lamp), three rangoli inspired rugs with colourful patterns, a 3×3 grid of candle lights which can be placed on top of other objects (including the rangoli rugs), and four different types of wall-hanging string lights that can be mixed and matched and overlapped to decorate your Sims’ homes.
Meanwhile, the new Create a Sim Diwali items include: full body outfits for adults (men and women), full body outfits for children (boys and girls), a bracelet accessory for women, earrings for girls, hair for a woman, hair for girls, and shoes for boys.
The Sims 4 has previously received updates in order to to be more inclusive to all of its players, such as the update that removed gender restrictions for Create a Sim items and allowed players to make transgender Sims. The Diwali update for The Sims 4 Holiday Celebration Pack can be seen as another effort to include everyone, with many Hindu players already celebrating the unexpected update.
What’s also positive is that the Holiday Celebration Pack and its Diwali content should eventually come to the console version of The Sims 4. The game’s development team has confirmed plans for parity between the console and PC versions of the game though it’s unclear exactly how long after launch PS4 and Xbox One players will have to wait until they can celebrate Diwali in-game too.
