Family, Food, and Vibrancy
Admittedly, Hispanic Heritage month is a largely American phenomenon. Our proximity to both Central and South American countries has an encouraged a free exchange of culture, ideas, language, and foods. Yet, the contributions of Hispanic people is evident worldwide, and this is what Maxis, the minds behind the popular Sims 4 franchise, seek to highlight this October.
In an update dropping October 6th, 2020, Sims 4 developers will showcase hispanic culture as an amalgamation of many cultures, including Brazilian. As a part of this free, base game update, players will receive beautiful new pots, traditional coal-based grills, mosaic tables, lovely new chairs, and stunning murals.
Focusing on the unifying themes of bold, vibrant colors and tight-knit family, Maxis has also included and male, female, and children’s CAS items in this update.
Bold new tattoos, almost Aztec-like in appearance, have also been added to base game.
If this were not enough, in addition to the theme
of vibrancy and family, the Sims 4 team has “exploded” the available grill recipes. All grills will now include recipes for elotes, grilled plantains, and many more delicious, traditional Hispanic dishes.

I like those grills a lot. The colors are lovely. The pots are very nice, too. All and any of the CAS items look..., well, I don't like those.

I like the items, even the CAS -- for people who don't use CC (or who can't, like console players) any free items, even reskins, are a Good Thing. I really like the new recipes; I'm turning the Rattlesnake Juice bar from Base Game into a Latin restaurant, with the new recipes, the ones from Jungle Adventures, and the Latinx foods from City Living (taquitos, burritos, etc.). Now if they'd just add horchata to the beverage menu...
