The Sims 4 is getting bunk beds at long last

After what feels like an eternity, Maxis is finally bringing bunk beds to The Sims 4, along with some unknown trait improvements.

The Sims team teased bunk beds a couple of weeks ago, tweeting a not-so-subtle silhouette of the furniture. Bunk beds originally made an appearance in The Sims 3: Generations Expansion Pack, and players have been begging for their return in The Sims 4 since the game's release in 2014. There are a ton of mods and custom content out there that try to make bunk beds, but usually with unintended wacky animations or visual bugs.

It might seem wild having people get worked up over something like bunk beds, but The Sims 4 has had a severe lack of family-oriented gameplay options for years now—toddlers weren't even in the game at launch and babies are literally objects you can place in your world from debug.

There are also some cryptic "trait improvements" mentioned in the tweet, though it doesn't go any further about what those could be. One potential change could be the removal of the 'vegetarian' trait, instead making diet options a separate choice. Traits have been watered-down massively in The Sims 4, usually only providing small mood boosts or decline, so hopefully, these changes will give your Sims a bit more personality than they do right now.

The free update goes live tomorrow (March 23) at 10 am PT/5 pm GMT.

A fresh writer in the industry, Mollie has been taken under PC Gamer's RGB-laden wing, making sure she doesn't get up to too much mischief on the site. She's not quite sure what a Command & Conquer is, but she can rattle on for hours about all the obscure rhythm games and strange MMOs from the 2000s. She's been cooking up all manner of news, previews and features while she's been here, but especially enjoys when she gets to write about Final Fantasy, Persona, The Sims, and whatever other game she's currently hopelessly fixated on. There's a good chance she's boring another PC Gamer writer about her latest obsession as we speak.
