Sims 4 Wedding Expansion Won’t Release In Russia Due To Homophobic ‘Federal Laws’

Celebrate love, your way

Over the years, you’ve delighted us with how your Sims have found love and celebrated that love through weddings in our base game. You also shared with us your eagerness to walk down the aisle, sit your Sims down, and shed a tear of joy as you made a lifetime commitment.

When we set out to create ‘My Wedding Stories’, that was the vision we had for our global community: the joy of finding love, celebrating that love, and telling stories that have personal meaning. .

Imagining the stories our players will tell with our packs is at the heart of everything we create. For “My Wedding Stories”, we were delighted to introduce you to Dom and Cam. Their love story mirrors the experiences of so many of our community and team members.

As we moved through our brand development and storytelling process, we realized that the way we wanted to tell Cam and Dom’s story would not be something we could freely share with the world. .

A commitment to our values

The ability to tell stories – any story – is at the heart of what we do at The Sims. Withholding Cam and Dom’s story meant compromising the values ​​by which we live. We stand for the freedom to be who you are, to love who you love, and to tell the stories you want to tell.

So what does this mean for you, our players? We are determined to uphold that commitment by highlighting and celebrating stories like those of Dom and Cam, so we have made the decision to forgo publication of “My Wedding Stories” where our storytelling would be subject to change due federal laws.

Unfortunately, this means that members of the sims community in Russia will not be able to purchase this game pack.

To our Simmers around the world, we are grateful to have you in our universe.

With love and gratitude,

The Sims Team
