Sims 4’s Custom Pronoun CAS Update Is A Major Inclusivity Win

A new Sims 4 update has added the long-awaited custom pronouns feature to Create A Sim. While the already game had fairly robust customization options prior to the update, The Sims 4 does lack several features fans have often requested to be added. Custom pronoun options for character creation have been desired by many players for years, and can be finally found in the game’s latest patch.

Create ASim mode, often shortened to “CAS”, allows players to design Sims, customizing everything from their hair, clothes, and body shape to personality and interests. However, in the past the game has been limited by its gender identity options, offering only the cisgender pronouns assigned when a player chooses between the male or female icon. Over the past few years, The Sims 4 team has made an effort to expand upon the game’s inclusivity and representation, and custom pronouns for CAS were first announced at a Sims 4 Maxis event in January of this year.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

The Sims team announced a new update on Twitter that officially adds custom pronoun options to Create a Sim. The tweet mentions that the update was done in collaboration with LGBT organization GLAAD and the It Gets Better Project, a non-profit which focuses on the empowerment of LGBTQIA+ youth. Further detailed by patch notes posted to The Sims‘ official forum, now next to the section where players enter their Sims’ names, there is a pull-down menu housing different pronoun options. By default, players can choose between “He/Him,” She/Her,” and “They/Them” pronouns, but custom pronoun settings can also be inputted manually by the user where they can choose different settings for different types of pronoun usage. Currently, the update only works in English, but developers have a plan to add every language over time.

Pronoun choice and gender-neutral pronouns have been long overdue in The Sims 4, and this new update has been met with incredibly positive reactions from fans. The Sims franchise is arguably the most well-known simulation game series of all time, and in many ways sets the standard for the rest in the genre. The addition of custom pronouns in Create a Sim sets a precedent for the kinds of customization options that should be featured in every game’s character creator. The normalization of sharing pronouns is incredibly important and makes it easier for people of every gender to be addressed in the way they wish.

Until now, most of the efforts to add inclusivity and representation to the game mostly came in the form of small and free Sims 4 item sets which added things like cultural clothing or regional dishes. The addition of custom pronouns to CAS is a much broader inclusion and affects every Sim within the game. A hallmark of The Sims series has always been the possibility for players to represent themselves and others in the game exactly how they wish, and the amount of inclusivity this Create a Sim update adds to the game is a great step towards continuing that tradition.
