Shortly after the release of the May 4th, 2015 patch for The Sims 4, an observant player read through the patch files and found a reference to "The Sims 4: Luxury Party Stuff." The existence of the pack was very quickly confirmed by Maxis on May 6, 2015. Today, Grant Rodiek posted an "announcement" for LPS on the News section of TheSims.com.
According to Rodiek, Luxury Party Stuff and future stuff packs will introduce new gameplay, in addition to the new objects and clothing introduced in previous stuff packs for TS2 and TS3. Previously, it was established that stuff packs would introduce fewer elements than Game Packs and Expansion Packs, and the announcement seems to reinforce that idea. Currently, the pack is set to be released for $9.99 USD, which is half the price of TS4 Game Packs, and half the price of most TS3 stuff packs when released.
As indicated by the name, the pack will focus on "high end, red carpet, party ‘til dawn bashes that require – nay, demand – all the trappings and majesty of the right crowd." To suit this, new clothing, accessories, and party-related objects are to be included. The pack will specifically highlight two new objects, which are, "essential for throwing a fantastic party." The first is a banquet table, which can be stocked with food prepared by Sims. There is also a new food and drink fountain, which can be placed atop the banquet table, and can dispense different drinks, chocolate, and "other delightful delicacies"
Obviously, more info will come out at and after release. Additionally, Maxis is planning an "Ask the Guru" session for May 19th, to coincide with the release of LPS. You can read more about that thread, and contribute your own questions, by going here.
