Family dynamics determine the type of relationship two family members share, with options including ‘Close’, ‘Distant’, ‘Difficult’ and ‘Pranksters’.
Different dynamics result in different ways that family members interact with one another, and that will potentially lead to more nuanced family relationships. In theory, you will be able to decide how close two siblings are and whether or not a spouse has a strained relationship with his or her in-laws.
Meanwhile, social compatibility determines the natural chemistry that two Sims share. Good compatibility will make Sims click and get along, while poor compatibility will make them more likely to clash.
Likes and dislikes have a say: if Sims have similar interests, they’re more likely to be compatible.
At the same time, new milestones will be added that mark a Sim’s growth, from falling in love as an adult to losing teeth as a child.
In-law visits are also teased in the trailer. The promo shows a grandfather showing up for a “temporary stay” and seeing his grandchildren, though full details on how this new feature will work have yet to be revealed.
