Sims 4 Update Bug Makes Sims Look Hilariously Wrong

The Sims 4 update just came out, and it seems to have broken something, as existing Sims have been turned into dumb, weird versions of themselves. The Sims 4 patch, like many others in the past, seems to have some hiccups early on.

So far, “The Sims 4” has been out for nearly ten years, but the game content has never stopped. Between The Sims 4 and EA’s regular production of new content in the form of Stuff Packs and Expansions by fans, the game has been thriving with meticulously recreated scenes and people.

Part of getting Sims 4 players involved requires the release of patches and updates, and the latest ones have confused some existing players. The Sims 4 was updated to version 1.97.42 on April 18. After downloading the update and launching the game, many players reported changes to their Sims, with squinting eyes, severe underbites, scrawny necks, and even broken razor teeth. Thankfully, not every player experiences these issues after the update. For those people, however, even The Sims 4’s prefab homes have been changed, making the entire game look weird.

The Sims 4 social account notified its followers that the developer is aware of the issue and is investigating what went wrong with the update. While they haven’t given an estimate for when the issue will be resolved, players may be happy to know it’s been investigated. So far, this problem has been less severe than previous Sims 4 bugs.

Interestingly, the latest update is mostly about adding small features and fixing a ton of bugs. It’s unclear how graphical glitches like this one managed to work around. Unfortunately, there currently doesn’t seem to be a way around this glitch, as players have reported that even resetting their Sims or changing their physical traits doesn’t seem to fix the issue. Thankfully, there don’t seem to be any major add-ons, so the core gameplay remains intact and the game is playable. This is a far cry from the glitch that causes Sims to age so abnormally quickly that they die unexpectedly before the player even knows what’s going on.

The Sims 4 is now available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
