The Sims 4, the first SDX update, or Sims Delivery Express, is here, with a new haircut.
Maxis has described the new micro-updates coming to The Sims 4 in October. They are minor updates designed to bring more frequent updates into play. Examples given at the time included a new Build mode or Created Sim content, or minor game fixes that don’t require a full game update. The first SDX update consists of a single hairstyle, so definitely something small, but free content is free.
You notice when you start up The Sims 4 that there will be a notification about the SDX update. After performing a quick download, restart the game, which will add the new content to the game. This first update is now available for download. If you think you want more, that’s fine too, because next week we have a small collection of holiday-themed items coming up. Thanks to the SDX system now in place, you can expect more frequent updates in The Sims 4.

Characters like Bella Goth get a skin tone change to reflect their past appearances better, while characters like Dina and Nina Caliente get the same treatment. In addition, you can now experience scenarios in The Sims 4; a game mode meant to add some challenge to the game. Think fan challenges like the 100 Baby Challenge, but built right into the experience.
All The Sims 4 SDX updates are available for PC, Mac, PlayStation, and Xbox and are always free, but PlayStation and Xbox players must link their console account to their EA account to use SDX.
In other news, Sony has had a patent for player-influenced game environments, as you could see in Death Stranding approved.
