What’s Included in the Sims 4 Star Wars Journey to Batuu?
With this exciting announcement today, developers have listed the key features that will be present to immerse you in the Star Wars galaxy. Luckily we don’t have to glean clues from the Reveal Trailer alone like many games do to build hype. Below I’ve summarized some of the Key Features that will be available to users at launch. Read the full announcement article from EA Games here.
Experience the Edge of the Galaxy
Sims will travel to the planet of Batuu where they can participate in a variety of activities not available on their home planet. Examples include socializing with the alien locals and exploring the unique planet of Batuu. After returning home, Sims will now have access to new decor and recipes. They’ll also be able to train with their lightsabers with other Sims.
Create Your Stars Wars Story
Take control of Butuu and determine who will hold power over the planet. Will it be the Resistance, the First Order, or outlaw scoundrels? Various missions will nudge the story -and the control of Butuu- towards one of the competing factions. In other words, your actions on Butuu directly influence and change the progression of the story. For better or for worse, it’s up to your Sims to determine the fate of Butuu.
Unite With Iconic Characters
From Kylo Ren to Rey and Vi Moradi, there will be no shortage of appearances by your favorite Star Wars characters in the new Sims 4 game pack.
In addition to everything listed above: yes, you will be able to craft your own lightsaber. To do this, Sims will have to explore the planet Butuu to collect Kyber crystals.
Equally important to mention: you get your very own droid. Just visit the Droid Depot to choose your new best friend.
