Next February 17 will be available my Wedding Stories, the new expansion of The Sims 4 around the world. Well, all over the world, less Russia. Through a statement, developers have confirmed that this content will not be available in this country , since it would go against the regulations of this nation.
In a recently published communiqué, it was announced that My Wedding Stories will not be available in Russia, as it violates federal laws that prohibit content related to relationships between people of the same sex. In this expansion, Players have the possibility of experiencing different weddings, including Dom and Cam, a homosexual couple . This was what was commented about:
“When we set out to create ‘My Wedding Stories’, this was the vision we had for our global community: the joy of finding love, celebrating that love and tell stories that have a personal level.
The ability to tell stories, any story, is the nucleus of what we do in the Sims. Retain the history of Cam and Dom meant compromising the values for which we live. We are committed to the freedom of being who you are, to love who you love and tell the stories you want to tell.
So, what does that mean for you, our players? We are firm in maintaining that commitment, highlighting and celebrating stories such as Dom and Cam, so we have made the decision to renounce the launch of ‘My Wedding Stories’, where our narrative would be subject to changes due to federal laws.
Unfortunately, this means that members of the SIMS community in Russia will not be able to buy this package of games. “
In this way, the development team had the opportunity to edit the Wedding of Dom and Cam to publish this expansion in Russia , but in the end they decided not to publish my Wedding Stories in this country, as it meant to eliminate content that It makes clear the importance of representation.
_ MY WEDDING STORIES_ will arrive at The Sims 4 on February 17 . On related topics, this would see a realistic version of The Sims.
