It’s time to Woo-Hoo and party it up as EA celebrates The Sims’ 20th anniversary with a new update for The Sims 4

EA knows how many times their Sims have done the dirty (over a billion instances!) as the company has released a new infographic that has detailed some statistics for The Sims 4 in celebration of the franchise’s 20th anniversary. The game will also be available for free for PlayStation Plus subscribers on PlayStation 4, and there will be a couple other treats for longtime players.

Since The Sims was first released in 2000, players across the globe have been designing their perfect homes, creating unique Sims and telling their own stories. The team at Maxis Studio pulled together a special infographic highlighting fun data reflecting everything players have done in the past 20 years: including creating more than 1.6 billion Sims, building more than 575 million households, and WooHoo-ing more than 1.3 billion times. Those are some impressive numbers… and some really busy Sims!

As a part of this momentous birthday celebration, Simmers on any platform can now get in the birthday spirit by taking an indulgent soak in the special 20th Birthday Hot Tub, available in a small update going live today. Sit back, relax and take a trip down memory lane with this new in-game item.

PlayStation Plus subscribers will also get free access to The Sims 4 throughout the month of February.

The party even continues outside of the game too! Simmers can also bring their love for The Sims to life with merch from Threadless, which you can check out here.
