Get ready to take care of some lovely pets because The Sims 4 is ready to introduce some little furballs. The ‘Cats & Dogs’ expansion pack will be released on November 10, 2017.

The Sims 4 was released back in 2014 and immediately found itself facing controversy due to lack of features. However, Maxis and Electronic Arts have since added a lot of features through free patches along with expansion packs to keep fans happy. Now, after three years, you’ll be able to raise pets too!

The upcoming ‘Cats & Dogs’ expansion was revealed during Gamescom. It comes with a ‘Create A Pet’ tool which will allow players to customize their animal friends. They can select the breed, age, color, fur, and more. The expansion will also introduce a new ‘Veterinarian’ profession. Sticking with the new profession will enable your Sims to run their own business and help animals in the community.

Of course, they’ll be new interactions and activities to choose from. You can play fetch with your pet, make them run obstacle courses, and more. There’s also an option to pick up a stray.

Your pets will also have an aging process. It’s up to you if you wish to see your pets grow old and die or you can always use some cheat codes to make them immortal. Who wants to go through the added stress of seeing their pet die of old age, right?

Also, unlike The Sims 3, you won’t be able to directly take control of your pets. Maybe that’ll change with a patch down the road.

Your Sims can also visit a new area called Brindleton Bay which is featured in the reveal trailer.

Talking about the reveal trailer, you might notice a queer couple getting married. It has been confirmed that the same couple will come premade in the expansion.
