The Sims 4 will soon receive a patch with several bug fixes for the game pack My Wedding Stories, which has been plagued with glitches since release.
The Sims 4 team has announced a myriad of bug fixes set to be released for The Sims 4: My Wedding Stories game pack. The game pack is the latest expansion released for The Sims 4, which has received over 30 DLCs of various sizes since its release in 2014. The Sims 4 has an incredibly large player base, having sold over 36 million copies, and has one of the most active communities in gaming.
Over the years, many Sims 4 expansions have added activities and life events for Sims to experience. The latest game pack, My Wedding Stories, aimed to expand upon in-game weddings, adding new events like rehearsal dinners and engagement parties alongside new wedding day activities like throwing rice and cake cutting. However, upon release players found the pack to be extremely glitchy, with almost no wedding activities working properly. In the past, EA has been criticized for releasing Sims 4 expansions before they are in full working order, instead choosing to patch the games post-release.

The Sims Twitter account announced a “Laundry List” of upcoming fixes that will be coming to My Wedding Stories. The tweet provides a link to the full list on the EA website that details specifically what fixes players can expect. The list is quite long, encompassing almost every wedding activity in My Wedding Stories. The patch will also have extensive improvements involving coordinating wedding activities. Currently, in the game pack, many NPC Sims will ignore player commands to participate in activities, such as refusing to sit for the wedding. All in all the post lists 13 fixes coming to My Wedding Stories, however, no release date for the patch has been announced.
Although many players will be relieved they may soon have a functional game, the fact that the patch was necessary in the first place has been incredibly frustrating for fans of the series. Over the years, The Sims 4 has received many patches, but many of the patches have addressed in-game issues that involve core gameplay functions which clearly should have been fixed before release. My Wedding Stories is the latest example of a Sims DLC being released before it is ready, only to require large patches afterward. Considering the fact that almost no elements of the new wedding features worked properly, many fans are left wondering how the pack was deemed ready for release.
The Sims series has a huge community surrounding it, and many have given EA harsh feedback online since My Wedding Stories was released. Despite its issues, The Sims 4 does have many engaging gameplay elements that are beloved by players that keep them coming back to the game. There’s been no indication of The Sims 5 releasing any time soon, and DLC content for The Sims 4 shows no signs of slowing down.
