A whole new way to experience Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is coming soon with The Sims 4 Star Wars: Journey to Batuu Game Pack.
Releasing on Sept. 8 for PC via Origin and Steam, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, players will be able to create their own Star Wars story in a galaxy far, far away – The Sims-style.
The Sims 4 Star Wars: Journey to Batuu is set on the remote planet on the edge of the Outer Rim, and is directly inspired by Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. Through The Sims 4, players will be able to see the sights and sounds of Black Spire Outpost, including the Millennium Falcon and Oga’s Cantina. They’ll also set out on missions with iconic characters, including Rey and Kylo Ren, as well as get their own lightsaber and droid.
“With The Sims, we’ve always strived to create content that takes players’ imaginations beyond their limits to tell fun and unique stories in the game, and with The Sims 4 Star Wars: Journey to Batuu, they’ll be able to take their Sims on an adventure to the edge of the galaxy,” said Lyndsay Pearson, executive producer and GM for The Sims. “We’re such big Star Wars fans, and set out to create an authentic and immersive Star Wars experience for players that also embodies the self-expression and deep storytelling possibilities with The Sims.”
In this Game Pack, players will leave their homes to travel to Batuu, and choose which faction to support, as their Sims’ actions will affect who controls Black Spire Outpost. Players can choose to support Rey and Vi Moradi as part of the Resistance, pledge loyalty to the First Order and Kylo Ren, or focus simply on gaining credits with Hondo Ohnaka and the scoundrels.
As Sims set out on missions, they will increase their reputations, unlock new artifacts and clothing, customize their own droids and create a lightsaber. After players leave Batuu and return home, they’ll even be able to bring back a few galactic souvenirs with them.
“We loved the idea of giving players the opportunity to tell their own Star Wars story, and The Sims’ open-ended form of storytelling and self-expression is the perfect platform to do so,” said Douglas Reilly, VP of Lucasfilm Games. “Our fans are always looking for new ways to immerse themselves into the Star Wars galaxy, and we hope The Sims will provide that in an unexpectedly new and exciting way, where they’ll influence the world of Batuu and find their destiny in the galaxy as they see fit.”
“The talented team at Maxis has brought the rich storytelling of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to life in a wholly new way with this experience,” said Scott Trowbridge, portfolio creative executive at Walt Disney Imagineering. “Seeing Black Spire Outpost on the planet of Batuu through the unique style of The Sims is a thrill, including its authentic sights, sounds and cast of characters.”
The Sims 4 Star Wars: Journey to Batuu Game Pack is rated T for Teen and will be available for $19.99. Preorder information is available on TheSims.com.
