For the first time in its 16 year history, The Sims is removing gender boundaries. An update on Thursday for The Sims 4will allow users to create an avatar with any body type, walk, or voice, regardless of gender. The Sims has given users the option of same-sex relationships for years (that earned it an ‘adults only’ rating in Russia), but until now, users have been restricted to certain clothes and hair options assigned to the respective gender of the avatar.
Rachel Franklin, executive producer of The Sims 4, announced to the Associate Pressthat the 700 options previously restricted to only male or female aviators will now be made available to ‘Sims’ of any gender. The expansion of gender customization options will allow male ‘Sims’ to wear heels and skirts and female ‘Sims’ to dress in suits and short hair. The update will also allow users to change their gender at any time.
