As a series, Maxis’ The Sims is enjoyed the world over. With so many different cultures invested in the life simulation games, Maxis has done well to accommodate their different tastes. In an upcoming update, another culture will be finally introduced: the Muslim culture.

Revealed through a monthly developer stream, Maxis revealed that a host of Muslim cultural items will be added to the title. Alongside architectural items inspired by Muslim buildings; clothing items will also be added.

These new items will all be included as part of the game’s fifth anniversary update. For female Sims, a hijab will be available and can be mix-and-matched with any other clothing item you wish. Patterned dresses, traditional cultural shirts and more will also be introduced. As for buildings, pointed archways, gorgeous ornate doors and patterned windows will be available to use.

“Not only do we have our fifth anniversary content, but we’ve got a set of new Muslim-inspired content coming to the game as well,” the team announced on the livestream.

Alongside this new Muslim cultural inclusion, gameplay tweaks are being introduced. The big one? Customisable, configurable stairs! From now on, players will have more control over how staircases are built. You can even make a maze of staircases!

Maxis’ inclusion of different cultures and lifestyles, including an awesome LGBT update for Pride, is making The Sims 4 a fantastic escapist paradise for many.
