The Sims 4: Aspirations and Traits List Revealed From E3 Demo

By   /   Jun 13, 2014

The upcoming new Sims 4 is going to feature plenty of aspirations and traits. While EA is going to be taking its sweet time in revealing each and everyone of them, The Sims fansite SimsVIP has gone ahead to reveal a comprehensive list.

They warn though, that the list is from the E3 “Create-a-Sim” demo and may vary from the final version of the game.

The site has also confirmed that players can change out their Aspirations at any time during play. This is in contrast to the last Sims installment where Aspirations were pretty much set in stone.

While there are only 10 categories listed, some of them have sub-options that’s related to the main one. For example, Deviance gives players the option to aspire to either be a Public Enemy or Chief of Mischief. It certainly adds variety to the game.
