On EA's website, there's notes on how you can attend classes in person, hang out in the school cafeteria, and even decorate your very own locker. While there are things like homework to complete, there are also festivities like prom and being able to style your bedroom with outfits and clothes designed by Depop sellers.

The Sims 4 also partnered with community creators such as MsGryphix, freezerbunnyx, and JOL1990 to create a thrift store/bubble tea hangout spot, along with a library and the principal’s old money mansion. So not only is there reason to explore school and hang out with friends at the thrift store, there’s also reason to explore the neighborhood as well.

If you’ve yet to pre-order the pack and are worried about missing out on cool freebies, there’s good news in that you can pre-order up until September 8 to receive the Vibing Streamer Gear bonus digital content.
