Free spooky update for The Sims 4 and pools are coming in November

The Sims 4 October 2014 update

Maxis' Sims 4 is receiving some free content for the next three months, including ghosts, Star Wars costumes, and those pools everyone's been craving.

A free content update has arrived on The Sims 4, all in a spooky and Halloween style. The new update, which is the first of three coming over the next three months, includes ghosts, Star Wars costumes, and extra eye colours.

After you've downloaded the new update any of your Sims that die will now be able to rejoin the game in spectral form. They'll maintain the characteristics of their living selves, but with added behaviours depending on how they passed on.

The Star Wars costumes include Luke Skywalker's X-wing pilot suit, Leia's robes, Darth Vader's suit, and Yoda's gettup too.

The update has also fixed some minor bugs, and the devs mention a few things about the upcoming November and December updates too.

Pools return to The Sims franchise in November. The missing pools have been the subject of many a debate since it was revealed they wouldn't be in the game at launch. Rest easy now players, you'll be able to drown your little Sims this November.

New career paths will be included in December's update as it's 'Put-Your-Sims-To-Work Month.'

Again, these updates are completely free, so all you have to do is log in to Origin and download the latest patch for the game. Take a look at the announcement page for further information, and also the October Ghost update page to learn how they work.
