Send your teen sims back to high school in the latest Sims 4 expansion pack.
The latest Sims 4 High School Years expansion pack is set for release on the 28th of July, 2022. It will be available on all major platforms and looks set to cost you around £34.99 – or so the pre order pages suggest.
Today will also be your last day to pre order The Sims 4 High School Year Expansion, so be sure to head over to one of the relevant links below to snag some pre order rewards.
Players will be able to send their teen sims back to school in the latest Sims 4 expansion pack, allowing them to experience all the trials and tribulations that high school had to offer.
Sims will be able to attend Copperdale High where school grades will dictate where Sims get into college. There’s even an option for Sims to study online for their GED.
As it’s very Gen Z orientated, fashion and self expression will also play a huge part in the latest expansion. “One of the core pillars of the pack is identity expression,” senior game designer Jessica Croft told Digital Spy.
“Being a teen is about figuring out who you are and how you might show that to the world. Fashion is a key vector of that identity exploration and expression for Gen Z.”
Copperdale high is set on the banks of Lak LaSuli – a small town that features more than just a thriving high school for teen sims. It’ll also play host to a local library, a thrift store, and an entire amusement park – equipped with a haunted house, tunnel of love, and ferris wheel.
Of course, the main focus of the game will be to send the teen sims back to school, allowing players to watch their sims go to class, take part in weekly exams, awkwardly eat lunch in the cafeteria, and play some cool classroom pranks.
Players do have the option of participating in extracurricular activities outside of hours, with football training, cheerleading practice, and other after-school clubs all up for grabs.
