It's beginning to look like a Sims 4 University Life expansion pack may be announced in the near future. The long-running Maxis series just recently released the spellbinding Realm of Magic game pack for Sims 4, which allowed players to travel through a magic portal to another realm and imbue their Sims with powers and spells, and now it appears fans of the life simulator will have even more content to look forward to in the upcoming months.
The concept of a college-themed experience inside The Sims originated in 2005 with The Sims 2 University. The first additional content pack for The Sims 2, University added the ability to send young adult Sims to a separate town-like school area that included classes, dorms, and private homes. Also a purchasable expansion for The Sims 3, the pack offered players the option of choosing their Sims' majors, such as Biology, Drama, and Mathematics, which would influence the types of jobs they qualified for later on in their lives.
According to a report by TheGamer, a recent Tweet by rapper Beau Young Prince indicated a University Life-style expansion pack is coming to The Sims 4. The musician had previously tweeted a video showing him in a recording studio with the caption mentioning he was "Working on something big with the SIMS game," and that led multiple fans to speculate the music was for the next iteration of the University pack. Almost two weeks later he replied to the original thread, stating "You guys guessed it right."

This is not the first time a University expansion has been rumored for The Sims 4. The fan site SimsCommunity recently noticed the social media profiles of one of the new Sims 4 cover art characters described that particular Sim as a top athlete at university, as well as the profile of another Sim which mentioned the photography profession, something only added into the game in the recent Sims 4 Moschino Stuff Pack update. Since every other profile mentioned things the game already included, many fans assumed this meant a college expansion could be coming soon.
Although it may sometimes seem like there is so much additional content it can be hard to determine which are the best Sims 4 expansion packs, previous entries in the University series have been both well-received by fans and reviewed highly by critics. Most of the larger expansions Maxis releases also tend to include additional content like new items for Build and Buy Modes, new jobs, and new ways for Sims to interact with each other. If rumors are to be believed, The Sims 4 may be going back to school soon, so players should take note and brush up on all the things they didn't know Sims could do.
