The Sims 4’s first Stuff Pack in two-and-a-half years arrives – Home Chef Hustle – has been given a release date, and will be introducing some hardcore small appliance action to all platforms from next Thursday, 28th September.
The Home Chef Hustle Stuff Pack basically features four main components: there’s new kitchen decor, new cooking attire, new small appliances, and the ability to cart your culinary creations outside to sell at a food stall and make some Simoleons along the way.
In terms of decor, you get counters, cabinets, and matching home appliances (oven, fridge, and dishwasher), all taking a cue from European designs, while the new small appliances take the form of a Stand Mixer, Waffle Maker, and Countertop Pizza Oven – the latter also capable of cooking focaccia bread if pizza isn’t your thing.
Each chefs will be able to don new hairstyles, food-themed accessories, and aprons, wearing it all out onto the street as they try their hand at running a thriving food stall. This is all focused on the new Anywhere Any Fare Food Stand, which players can customise with a new name and decide what food they want to serve.
The Sims 4’s Home Chef Hustle Stuff Pack will launch for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC (via the EA app, Origin, Steam, and the Epic Store) on 28th Septeber, and should cost around £8.99 – assaying EA hasn’t decided to crank the usual Stuff Pack price.
It’ll be accompanied by a free update for the base game adding new recipe filters making it easier to ind the meal you want to make, plus the ability to jettison the ludicrously over-sized cupcake maker and simply make all your cupcakes in the oven.
