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.
