The contestants will remain a mystery until the permiere, but they include “familiar online personalities who each specialize in their own element of The Sims gameplay.”
Those at home will be able to do more than simply watch, as Maxis will be putting out a series of in-game challenges in The Sims 4 called the Spark’d Challenge Program that will also begin Friday, July 17. Furthermore, those who stand out and become a top creator can win a chance to be considered for a future season of The Sims Spark’d.
If players are interested in catching up on The Sims 4 before this new show, EA announced at EA Play Live 2020 that The Sims 4 base game and all packs are now available on Steam.
