The Sims continues to revolutionize the gaming world after decades. Now, all gender-based boundaries have been removed from the virtual character-based game on the free update for The Sims 4. Users can now choose from any body shape, voice type, hairstyle and clothing. Also, players will now be able to change their gender any point during the game.

The Sims 4's executive producer Rachel Franklin stated that Electronic Arts and developer Maxis consulted with the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) while working on the updae. "Female Sims can wear sharp men’s suits like Ellen (DeGeneres), and male Sims can wear heels like Prince," she said.
