Welcome to The Sims Wiki News, SimNation's #1 news blog. I'm your host, LostInRiverview. Let's start the show!
The Sims News
Cool Kitchen Stuff
Last week, I mentioned a rumor about Cool Kitchen, which was rumored to be the next game pack. Well, it turns out that I was half-right; The Sims 4: Cool Kitchen Stuff was officially announced this week! As the name implies, this stuff pack will pack lots of new stuff for your kitchens. To read more about it, including some (literally) cool new features, check out Nikel's CKS announcement blog.
Additionally, EA has announced that dishwashers are coming back, via a free game update this week. Keep an eye on our list of recent updates to see when this has been implemented.
Update - The Sims 4 at Gamescom
SimsVIP has reached out to EA, regarding The Sims 4's presence at Gamescom 2015, which starts this week in Germany. According to EA, TS4 will have a behind-closed-doors presence at the convention, and will be covered during EA's press conference on August 5th.
SimsVIP will be at Gamescom and will also bring live coverage of the EA press conference. Be sure to keep track of SimsVIP on Twitter for the latest Gamescom news.

As always, if you have a matter that should be considered by the community at large, please do not hesitate to start a new thread.
