The latest downloadable content (DLC) for The Sims 4, the hugely popular free-to-play life simulation game, has been revealed and takes the form of two highly anticipated kits.

The new kits are the The Sims 4 Castle Estate kit and the The Sims 4 Goth Galore kit - two themes that were selected by the The Sims 4 community in a vote last year. As the name would suggest, the Castle Estate kit adds 25 build mode items themed around castles. This includes new windows, decorative columns, and, of course, a very imposing front gate.

Although it doesn't quite look like everything that you would need to truly build the castle of your dreams, it should be a good compliment to some of the pre-existing castle-like items that were released as part of the larger The Sims 4 Discover University expansion pack. You can see all of the items included in the Castle Estate kit below:

The other new kit, Goth Galore, is focused on clothing for your sims and contains 24 pieces of fashion inspired by goth culture. This is definitely a welcome addition and some of the new makeup options alone here will probably make it a worthwhile purchase for me. These are all the items included in the Goth Galore kit:

For those not already familiar with how The Sims 4 handles its DLC, kits are bite-size add-ons that add a small smattering of build mode items, clothes, or even new mechanics to your game. They cost $4.99 / £4.99 and are a good way to get some extra content without breaking the bank - that is if you’re willing to shell out the cash.

Both of these new kits will be available to purchase tomorrow (January 18, 2024) and are coming to every platform where The Sims 4 can be played, which is PC, Mac, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One.
