In their ongoing diversity efforts, The Sims 4 new update includes Hispanic food, clothing and decor.
The Sims team always tries to include as much diversity as their games allow and the latest update is no different.
In the past, we have seen a Caribbean update, Chinese New Year and Mexican Day of the Dead.
In order to allow Sims to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, the latest Sims 4 update has added multiple Latino inspired aspects.
The new content includes such things as Create-a-Sim clothing, new tattoos from Mister Cartoon, objects, decor and food recipes.
New food additions to The Sims are always a favorite of mine and some of the new Sims 4 food doesn’t disappoint.
Seven new Latino inspired recipes have been added and can be cooked on any in-game grill.
The full list includes everyone’s favorite Chicken Chimichurri Skewers, Choripan and Pinchos.
Elote, Chimi, Asami and Polo a la Brasa have also been made available.
All of these mouth-watering Hispanic food recipes can also be cooked on the new grill that has been included in the game.
As well as a new grill, Hispanic decorations include a dining set, outdoor pots, an amazing pergola and a huge mural that can be applied to outdoor walls.
As if there aren’t already enough clothing in the Sims 4, some new additions have been made.
As well as designing tattoos for the game, well-known Chicano artist Mister Cartoon has also designed the update’s new clothing.
Using his signature “Fineline” style of art, the artist has created some highly detailed clothing.
The clothing includes adult male and female tops as well as a unisex children’s top.

The new tattoo from Mister Cartoon also utilizes his style and includes the infamous Freezer Bunny.
On an added note, as part of their addressed inclusion dynamic going forward, some of the African hairstyles in the game have been retextured.
Also, all skin tones are now uncompressed by default to make them appear smoother.
Skintones and diversity in the Sims 4 have been addressed as a major issue and has now become part of their ongoing inclusion efforts.
In a recent post, EA addressed how they are going to fix skin tones in the game.
The issue is that some skin tones, specifically that of the African community, don’t appear to be fully representative of the community as a whole.
New skin tones, improved existing skin tones and sliders for more control are set to be added to the Sims 4 base game updates in the near future.
This latest Sims 4 Hispanic update is available now for free across PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
