Meet the different groups on the planet. EA

In less than a week, The Sims 4 is going to release its newest Star Wars: Journey to Batuu Game Pack. This expansion is going to introduce players to the world of Batuu. Today we take a quick look into the different groups that players can interact with in this new pack.

The first group is, clearly, the People of Batuu. Once players arrive on the planet, they get the feel of it being a good place for an adventure. There’s going to be some interesting Sims that they can meet along with the various local specialties. However, all of that is going to possibly end as players are sure to be caught in the middle of the conflict between opposing factions.

First is the Resistance, which players are likely to learn more from DJ R–3X over at Orga’s Cantina. In order to join this faction, players need to have their Sim prove that they have what it takes to stop the First Order. Players need to start by doing some reconnaissance missions and build enough reputation in order to get access to higher-level missions. Those who can get enough reputation may even get the chance to gain the trust of Vi Moradi and hop in the cockpit of an X-wing fighter. Maybe they can even earn the respect of Rey herself.

Players can also choose to side with the First Order. While the Resistance continues to hide their presence on the planet, the First Order has established an outpost. The Black Spire Outpost is but a start and part of Supreme Leader Kylo Ren’s plan to bring order to the galaxy. As a trooper, players need to stop any plots by the Resistance. The goal here is to complete missions and protect the interests of the First Order. These include fortifying the communications are along with checking IDs on the street.

It’s not all about these two factions as there also the Scoundrels. That’s right, there are a lot of smugglers on the planet. Players looking for some less than legitimate work can talk to Hondo Ohnaka. Then there is the pirate-turned-businessman Weequay who could also have some missions available. Those lucky enough can get the chance to join a big heist and even get aboard the Millennium Falcon.

Star Wars: Journey to Batuu is set to be released for The Sims 4 on September 8 and is priced at $19.99

Player Reactions

While the thought of introducing the Star Wars universe to The Sims 4 could well be exciting, it appears it’s not getting the love it should have. Reactions so far have been mixed, with many fans voicing their disappointment on social media.

According to a report by Screenrant, the negative reaction focuses on two reasons. The first is that nobody wanted a Star Wars themed The Sims 4 DLC. The second is that the DLC may not appeal to those who are not fans of Star Wars.

Just how bad is it really? Well, the official reveal trailer on YouTube has 40K likes versus 99K dislikes. The gameplay trailer, meanwhile, has 17K likes against 30K dislikes so far.
