No E3 and now no EA Play I was expecting an announcement for the next EP at EA Play with a release in August. Are they going to do Gamescom again and set for late fall early winter release again? Or have they decided to make the next EP's announcement lowkey because of the poor reaction they got from GT's announcement.

Whichever it is this uncertainty and silence is now starting to irritate me.

My eyes are virtually worn out from all the rolling they have been doing. Thank goodness there are plenty of other good games to play these days.

The year is almost half over, and we've been given a lot less content this time. I wonder if they're pushing it all together towards the end of the year. Based on "Spring 2016," I'm kind of expecting the restaurant GP sometimes in June, not may.

Also, since I don't think they have anything else planned for Summer, they may get an EP in for Fall, and maybe a stuff packs or two after that before wrapping up the year.

That's four or five stuff packs, a game packs, and an expansion pack.
Exhilarating.

They did this last year too I was hoping they'd show some clips of the next ep at it I'm starting to feel like Sims FreePlay is getting more updates and content than Sims 4 So far, I've seen "Sims FreePlay: Boutique Hair Event", "FreePlay just got a spa update", "Open your #TheSimsFreePlay game and start collecting to help us out!" and those announcements were released via Twitter within the last 24 hours

The two new packs were advertised as Spring/Summer of 2016. Does June count as Spring? I was thinking that gp3 would release in late May, with the new stuff pack later in Summer?

New info about the Sims 4 Gamepack and a release date for a new bundle. Hopefully the gp will release at the same time?

@matrix54 I'd argue that it was a combination of both being announced too early as well as mispromoted. The promotion was a disaster but also if you go back to the first trailer you can clearly see that the EP was barely finished, they were still in the midst of working on it. I believe they even admitted this when they announced the delay since they said it gave them more time to polish up things and even add the diving board and don't wake the llama.

The end product turned out to be drastically different than that what we had seen first promoted. Had it not been delayed, and released in the state of the original promo, reception would not have been so good.

On the contrary.

Quote:
Across our portfolio of live services, we launched hundreds of content updates
throughout the year, bringing players deeper into their favorite games. Our Sims 4
player base grew by almost two-thirds throughout the year, and our Battlefield franchise
saw 9.4 million unique players in Q4 alone.


I think they just won't be there because it looks like they'll just have a SP to announce. They are on a really tight announcement schedule nowadays so anything new we get from the game will come one or two month after hearing about it. We already know that we are getting the dining pack this month and the kids stuff pack next month likely. I'm guessing that's why.

I wonder what all of that experimental cuisine stuff is about. I'm guessing it's some level 10 cooking skill dishes. That, or they added another cooking skill, with all new dishes? We'll see.

It bugs me that these tables are square-ish and not round, they don't feel like restaurant tables but more like the basic tables with a cloth on top. Also they ditched their "Get ..." trend; too bad it could have been "Get Eating"

The list isn't eve done yet. Trust me, the opportunity to be sassy will come, and I'll right there with you, but we have to wait a while lol

Also, we don't know if they got ride of the "Get-" yet, since that's expansion pack exclusive.

If that bundle release is correct then that would mean they're announcing the pack tomorrow because they always announce 2 weeks before release. I doubt that date is right since that is a Thursday and they only release on Tuesdays. Thursdays are patch days.

I wonder if they are going to add the blogging feature back in from TS3, since there are a lot of food and restaurant blogs and the sims already take pictures of everything. Although I didn't use that much in 3 (I only remembered it now because I saw Youtubers Life on Steam) I think it could be a big thing in this game since the sims are always on their computers, phones, and tablets. It feels like a big social aspect that's missing.
