The Sims Freeplay Faces of the Future Update [October 2022]

Presented by the EA Creator Network.

It’s time for a major Sims glow-up with the latest update for The Sims Freeplay! Be sure to update your games when the update goes live at 9.30PM UTC Tuesday 18th 2022.


Here’s all the info from the official blog:   

Sul Sul! 

For our 10th birthday last December, we reminisced on the incredible historical milestones we have achieved in The Sims franchise and teased our bright future of exciting content to come! In the latest update of The Sims FreePlay, we’re delivering on our promise to give you more tools to express and represent yourself. Thanks for sticking with us as we continue to grow! 

Base Game Improvements

New Sim Faces

We’ve seen all your feedback about our Sim appearances, and we hear you. For the first time ever, we’ve permanently refreshed the faces of elder, adult, teen and preteen life stages so you can finally create Sims that reflect your true selves. 

We get it – our Sims have been looking a little dated! They were originally designed to suit 2011 phone specs and modelled on The Sims 3.  The new faces will automatically apply to every Sim in your game (excluding infants and toddlers), including non-playable characters and the Sim Tracker! If you’d like to explore the options, jump into Create A Sim by using a Wardrobe. 

There is still a path ahead of us with continual growth for true representation in our game, so we’ll make sure to keep you updated on our future development over time. We can’t wait to see what you create, and we’d love to hear what you think about the new face improvements, so chat to our SimGurus on Twitter!

Shared hair, glasses & earrings across all genders

In the first step in our ongoing efforts to expand our representation options, we’ve made it possible for all of our 500+ hairstyles, earrings and glasses to be shared between ALL genders in ‘Create A Sim’. 

Try this out by by using a Wardrobe or by adding a new Sim in an empty lot to view all the non-gendered options you’re now able to mix and match! This permanent improvement is free for players of all levels! Note: This does not apply to sharing between life stages, and currently does not apply to tattoos or makeup.

Sim Path Finding – Smooth Walking

We’ve updated the walk tracks on the ground, so Sims no longer turn corners in sharp square paths! You’ll notice now that Sims have smooth rounded walking for more realistic pathfinding when they undertake any action in the game. Once you see it, you can’t unsee it! 


Premium Perks – New Feature

A new event system, Premium Perks, has arrived! As you spend Social Points anywhere in the game by simply shopping in the Home Store and Online Store, you’ll earn Premium Perk Points to unlock exclusive progression prizes as you fill the progress bar. 

Available to players at Level 16+, the event can be accessed in your Active Tasks menu, and you’ll see a pop up at the top of your game screen when an event is active. 

1 SP equals 2 Premium Perk Points! Be sure to keep an eye on the timer, because the event duration is only 10 days (with a two-day rolling start). 

The first season of Premium Perks delivers exclusive witchcore rewards like cauldron-ready outfits and exclusive enchanting objects that include a double bed with celestial blanket, vanity desk with crystal ball, wall hanging moon phases rug, and more. 

‘Botanical Beauty’ Live Event

Bring the outdoors inside with lush greenery! The ‘Botanical Beauty’ Live event delivers a greenhouse mansion filled with potted and hanging plants in every room!

  • Hanging egg chairs
