Recently Electronic Arts announced ‘High School Years’, an expansion pack for ‘The Sims 4’ that, in addition to immersing the characters in the experience of the school years, promised important changes in terms of inclusivity, for example, choosing preferences sexual and romantic of each Sim. To prepare the game for that experience, the development studio released a free update.
The last update, released on July 26, replaces “whims” with a new section called “wishes and fears”, introduces curved walls, body hair and phone updates. However, according to GamePro, the gaming community has warned on social networks that some characters in the game are looking forward to relationships with members of their own family.
An update that adds incest by mistake
The bug has come to light thanks to the comments of the users themselves. ProfoundEnd asks on Reddit why your Sim wants to be in a relationship with their own child. A user on the official Electronic Arts forum assures that the error has allowed a romantic relationship between twin brothers in the game. And examples of this type are replicated by different forums and social networks on the Internet since the last update of ‘The Sims 4’ was released.
But the latest update not only adds incest to the game by mistake, it also opens the door for other bugs. For example, one makes characters age faster. In this case, the Sims go from babies to adults in a short time, which means that they end up dying before their time.
Hi Simmers! We are investigating the issue of Sims auto-aging. We recommend that you save games with the default “normal” lifespan while we work to find a solution.

Another bug makes non-famous characters become famous unexpectedly and from one moment to another. However, according to SimGuruNickwho is a quality designer on ‘The Sims,’ the development team welcomes player feedback, acknowledges bugs, and ensures they’re working on a fix.
The company, meanwhile, says it has completed the investigation related to the latest game update. In this sense, it has begun to apply corrections in the game. However, he also points out that he will release a patch to resolve problems by the end of the week, so we may see a new update between August 5 and 7.
