Unfortunately for fans looking for more details, the developers are remaining tight-lipped, and all references to the update are titled ‘[redacted]’.
One producer for The Sims 4, going by Molly, shared that it’s the “first [redacted] I’m fully working on,” and added that they “can’t wait to share everything” with fans when the time is right.

Elsewhere, there’s precious few details available on what to expect. Salo, a concept artist for The Sims, shared that the ‘[redacted]’ update will include a new pair of shoes.
George, another Twitter user working on The Sims 4, shared that they’re currently “playtesting the new [redacted] feature,” which confirms that a new gameplay feature will be included beyond cosmetics. As the update is being playtested, there’s a chance that the mystery update may not be too long away.
It's Monday and I've got to write some funny object text this week. Then some time playtesting the new [REDACTED] feature.

Back in January, Maxis shared a roadmap for The Sims 4, however that only covered three months-worth of content – so anything beyond March is yet to be revealed.
Earlier in March, the studio launched Décor To The Max, a piece of downloadable content which included a bunch of bright decor designed for players who prefer maximalism.
There was also an update to Neighbourhood Stories, which made accidental death and other life-changing events possible for players’ neighbours.
In other gaming news, Far Cry 6 is getting a free weekend to coincide with the shooter’s Stranger Things crossover. Interested players can jump into the game without paying between March 24 to March 27.
