Sims 4 Patch Fixes Hibernating Babies, Grim Reaper Dating
EA deploys launch-day patch for just-released PC simulation game; full patch notes here.
One issue cleared up through the patch is a bug that makes the game hang up after you've gone on a date with the Grim Reaper. "The Reaper still loves ya baby, he is just too busy to go on a date with every lovelorn Sim that vies for his attention," EA writes.
Another Sims 4 bug that the patch aims to fix is for an issue where "babies were incorrectly hibernating within household inventories."
