In partnership with the It Gets Better Project and GLAAD, The Sims 4 is adding a brand new update that will allow its players to add custom pronouns to their Sims in Create A Sim. The news came via a quick social media announcement confirming the new feature.
Besides this new feature, the update will also implement some bug fixes. You can see a full explanation of customizable pronoun rights directly from a blog post on the community website directly below.
We’re excited to announce that starting today, you can customize your Sims’ pronouns in Create a Sim (CAS) in The Sims 4 if your game client is set to English.
To change the pronouns for your Sim, simply click on the “Hello, my name is…” tab next to the plumb. You’ll see the Custom Pronouns drop-down menu where you can choose from She/She, You/Her, He/He, and Custom Pronouns.
If you have chosen to use custom pronouns, the feature will automatically change pronouns that appear when referring to the Sim to match your selection. Although the feature has been fully tested, there may be cases where the incorrect conjugation of pronouns or the default pronoun of the assigned gender still appears due to the intricacies of English grammar. We’ll be working to improve the feature over time, so please let us know if you come across instances where the wrong pronoun is showing up in this Answers HQ thread.
Initially, the customizable pronouns feature will only be available in English, but we plan to expand the feature to all 18 languages over time. At launch, custom pronouns can be uploaded to the gallery and used in English only.
For this first iteration of the feature, we focused on pronouns. While pronouns are a very important element when it comes to making The Sims 4 more inclusive, we understand that having customizable pronouns doesn’t make the game 100 percent gender neutral. You will still see instances of gendered language in the game, such as B. Mother, father, policeman, policewoman, etc.
Making gender neutrality more inclusive in The Sims 4 is an ongoing learning and development process for us, and we will continue to update this feature over time. For now, we hope that being able to choose your favorite and custom pronouns for your Sims will make your game feel more inviting and friendly.
Fans can expect the update to go live in The Sims 4 later today.
