In The Sims 4, and the many Sims titles that came before it, players have been able to design their very own characters, choosing their clothing, hairstyles, make-up and various other aspects of their characters’ designs. However, the Create a Sim feature has limitations, with much of the CAS content (including hairstyles and clothing) being restricted depending on whether the character is male or female.
In a positive move forward, The Sims publisher EA and developer Maxis have now released a free Sims 4 update that aims to break down these barriers. The two companies also worked with LGBT advocacy group GLAAD to add other customisation options, such as the ability to change a Sims’ gender at any time. Find out more after the break.
