The Sims 4 has revealed its next two DLC kits, one of which is camping themed, and will finally introduce new items for Sim kids.
A new announcement from The Sims 4 has revealed two upcoming kits for the game, Moonlight Chic and Little Campers, the latter of which will contain a variety of content for Sim kids. Since its release in 2014, The Sims 4 has received an incredible amount of DLC – the most of any title in the Sims franchise. Sims DLC comes in a variety of sizes and helps expand the game by offering new mechanics, items, and clothing.
DLC for The Sims 4 comes in four different sizes, the largest of which is Expansion, followed by Game Packs, Stuff Packs, and Kits in descending order. Kits are the newest addition to the franchise and tend to focus on a very specific theme – like plants or retro clothing – and each contain around 30 pieces of furniture or clothing items. Although EA has been criticized by some fans for the small amount of content, the DLC format is still popular with many gamers. Two new kits, coming in May and June 2022, were first announced in the latest Sims roadmap released earlier this month, with a focus on a nighttime theme.

Sharing the news on Twitter, The Sims have officially unveiled the upcoming Moonlight Chic and Little Campers kits. Moonlight Chic will be a CAS focused kit based on Parisian fashion and will feature a collaboration with designer Paola Locatelli. Fans can expect “sophisticated sets, flowing shirts and a fitted dress” from the clothing-based DLC. Meanwhile, Little Campers is teasing exciting new content for Sim kids – something fans have been asking for. According to the post, Little Campers will inspire “creative family fun” with items like an outdoor projector made out of a bed sheet, ceiling forts and DIY toys. Both kits are scheduled for release on May 26th.

While the Sims community’s opinion of kits hasn’t always been positive, these two upcoming DLCs are undoubtedly intriguing. Many players have long wished for more child-specific items to enhance in-game family narratives, and a collection of romantic Parisian fashions is sure to enhance romantic storytelling as well. While The Sims 4 already pushed into fun outdoor stuff with the Game Pack Outdoor Retreat, most of the pack is more focused on adult activities. Many fashion kits have been released for the game since the kits were introduced and although some of the clothing items featured in the new promotional images appear to be somewhat similar to the outfits offered in the Carnaval Streetwear kit, the new romantic slant is in the variety it will offer is promising.
Some fans of the game might be more excited about the supposed release of the Sims Werewolf game pack, which was also teased during the recent roadmap promo, but the new kits also have the potential to feature several new gameplay elements – somewhat quite Atypical for kits in the past. When it comes to the sims 4, Storytelling potential is an important component to consider for any new DLC release, and the addition of new family camping storylines and romantic date nights could well add a significant amount of potential narrative for players to explore.
