Game developers continue to find ways to make “The Sims 4” more interesting and the easy route to that is to deliver added content, both free and paid DLCs. “City Living” is the one expected to come out this November but a couple more could be on the horizon with the rumored “Pets” and “Seasons” add-ons.

“Pets” and “Seasons” possibly for “The Sims 4” looms as a possibility after a curious exchange from a thread over at Reddit. The two potential DLCs were queried and one of the game designers (SimGuruDaniel) responded positively though it was considered more of a tease than a confirmation.

Apparently “Pets” and “Seasons” for “The Sims 4” is nothing new. They were previously requested for way back in 2014 when the game was released though nothing close to it has happened. The situation for the life-simulation game is apparently different to date with added content seen as the best way to somehow pick up from its woeful sales performance.

“Pets” feasible than “Seasons” as add-on

Of the two DLCs wished for on “The Sims 4”, the “Pets” DLC seems more realistic to wish for. Seeing pets as companions were already done in previous “The Sims” franchises so adding them alongside “City Living” could make a lot of sense.

Unfortunately, the case doesn’t hold true for “Seasons” which may be too technical to consider. Adding this DLC to “The Sims 4” will require a lot of work including going back to patch previous worlds to make it all work. Doing that carries a lot of risks, including the possible corruption of files with the wrong code implementation.

Regardless, the addition of “Pets” or “Seasons” is nothing more than a rumor for now with game developers likely exploring other things to make “The Sims 4” better. The only thing certain for now is “City Living” which comes out in November.
