The Sims 4's Star Wars Expansion Is Out Now, Here's What You Need To Know

Take your Sims to Batuu in the newest expansion for The Sims 4.


It's a big day for The Sims 4, as the immensely popular life-management game has added its newest expansion, Journey to Batuu. The Star Wars add-on takes players to the planet of Batuu and brings characters like Rey and Kylo Ren to the game.

There are a variety of popular Star Wars locations you can visit, too, including Oga's Cantina which plays music from the robot DJ R-3X. Players can also create their own lightsaber and build a droid of their own who will travel with them.

Throughout the expansion, players will meet up with other NPCs from The Resistance, the First Order, and various scoundrels, all of whom are trying to take control of the Black Spire Outpost.

"Players can pledge allegiance to the group of their choice and complete missions to earn their trust and some galactic credits along the way," EA said in the description. "As Sims take on new challenges and critical missions, they'll increase their reputation and unlock new rewards like starfighter access, new clothing, artifacts, and equipment, and eventually meet the leaders of the forces on Batuu."

Players can choose to align with Rey and Vi Moradi in the Resistance or embrace the dark side with Kylo Ren and the First Order. Hondo Ohnaka, a character from Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, is the leader of the scoundrel faction.

What's more, players can bring some of the Star Wars items with them back to their home worlds. Specifically, you can fight against others with your lightsaber, play sabacc with friends, or even bring your droid around with you.

The Journey to Batuu expansion is available for $20 across all platforms.
