Everyone who has ever played The Sims knows where each household eventually ends up: with every family member trapped in a bathroom with no toilet awaiting their inevitable demise. Now, like some sort of evil, soul-possessing demon,a new Sims first-person mode will let you watch them croak (or do other things) through their very own eyes.
OK, you can also do regular Sims things, like cook, clean, pet a cat, or decorate a bedroom with pink arm restraints for the more adventurous lovers out there. We’ll see if you can actually “woo-hoo” in the bedroom in due time, I’m sure.
The new view is included as part of a free update set to release on Nov. 13, including a new “style influencer” career path, just before the “Get Famous” expansion releases on the 16th.
Folks have already got some interesting (read: mildly devious) ideas on how they’re going to put the new first-person mode to the test. One mom is clearly looking forward to installing the Wicked Whims mod, which expands The Sims options for sexy time. Here’s hoping you don’t scar the little ones, ma’am.
Ok so the sims 4 is gonna have first person camera soon and honestly it’s made me even more determined to get a new pc so I can put the wicked whims mod in my game.— ✨Karley Danielle✨ (@GlitterMermaid4) November 7, 2018
I can’t atm because my kids share my computer and play sims and they definitely can’t see that mod 😂😂
My first impressions on the sims 4 having a first person mode was Wicked Whims is about to become a bit too realistic. *shudders*— MidnightAura🦄🐾 (@MidnightAura86) November 6, 2018

In the interest of keeping things not-entirely-adults-only, Sims global community manager “SimGuru Kate” and Maxis build engineer Steve Lansing mentioned on a recent Twitch stream that players will be able to use the first-person view to give house tours, as well as utilize it in fan-made “machinima” videos. I’m sure fans will keep things strictly HGTV levels of family-friendly.
Then, of course, there are the more, ahem, aggressive folks.
Gonna set Sims on fire in first person. Yeehaw.— maedi | maddie maree. (@maediocre) November 6, 2018
