The Sims 4 Star Wars Game Pack
Journey to Batuu DLC Additions and Gameplay Features
Star Wars: Journey to Batuu. The Sims 4 is in there, too.
The Sims 4 Journey to Batuu Game Pack aims to let players enjoy an authentic Star Wars experience by letting them take a trip to Batuu. While adventuring there, they'll be able to meet Star Wars characters, collect some iconic items like lightsabers and droids, and bring those items home once the trip is done. Journey to Batuu has a September 8, 2020 release date.
Where Does This Come From?
Who are these characters? Check out the blog linked below to learn about Galaxy's Edge and the characters involved in the Disney attraction.
A blogger named Crazy Cat Nerd did an excellent write-up that you can read on her blog which will explain Batuu, the factions and characters involved. This pack has a tie-in with a Disney theme park attraction called Galaxy's Edge. If you are a Sims player who wants to understand what is going on in this pack and who the characters are, I highly recommend you visit her blog to learn more.
Batuu: A Star Wars Outpost
The Outpost at Batuu
Players will get a phone call offering them adventure, which leads them to the world of Batuu. It's an outpost in the Outer Rim in the Star Wars universe. You'll find three separate factions here: smugglers and scoundrels, the First Order, and of course the Resistance. Each of these groups is attempting to take control of Batuu as a valuable trading outpost.
You'll work for multiple factions in order to increase standing.
Missions sound like they are the primary gameplay. You'll develop a reputation with each faction as you perform missions for them. This may involve spying, sabotage, collecting, or making repairs and flying starships.
You can purchase and customize droids in Journey to Batuu
In order to assist you with missions for the three factions, you'll be able to purchase your own Droid at the Droid Depot. It would appear there are both R-series Droids (think R2-D2) along with B-series, like BB-8 in the new trilogy. These can assist you on missions, and you're able to at least customize the color. They apparently can be instructed to help you by providing distractions and helping with repairs.
Fitness skill is used for lightsaber combat. It seems there will mostly be friendly duels.
Lightsabers are also included in the pack. You'll have to collect Kyber Crystals (not our typical Sims collectibles) and get a hilt to make your own. Lightsabers use the fitness skill to determine your ability with them.
Back at Home
Decorate your home with items you bring back from Batuu.
This is a travel experience, not something that is going to have a lot of impact back in Sims-ville. You will be able to bring your Droid back home, and use your Lightsaber in friendly duels with Sims. Additionally, there are objects you can use to decorate your home (and of course you'll get access to the assets they used to make various things on Batuu). It's not a pack that is extensively integrated with the rest of the game, and comes across to me as a very contained experience due to these things.
Thus far, I'm not aware of any new skills or careers, just missions and galactic credits you can spend when on Batuu. To take advantage of this pack, you'll need to cheat or travel to Batuu.
My opinion doesn't belong on this page, but I've definitely provided one.
Because I know that some people are excited and would prefer my main pages to be about the actual content, I've kept my opinion on this pack separate. It's evolving, but you can read my thoughts here if you are interested in what I think.
