The Sims 4 Star Wars: Journey to Batuu is a downloadable content pack for The Sims 4 that serves as a video game adaptation of the world of Batuu and various characters and locations from the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge park. It also includes quests and original NPC characters.
Though the game is not considered canon, elements and names within the game are canon. As such, the game can be used as a source of canon information, such as the original NPCs and their names, as well as items that are acquired in the game.
The Sims 4 Star Wars: Journey to Batuu is set on the remote planet on the edge of Outer Rim Territories, inspired by Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland Resort® and Walt Disney World Resort®. As a new visitor to Batuu, Sims will experience the authentic sights and sounds of the Star Wars universe, including the Millennium Falcon and DJ R-3X's interstellar hits at Oga's Cantina. They'll also embark on exciting missions, unite with iconic characters like Rey and Kylo Ren, and get their hands on their very own lightsaber and droid.
In The Sims 4 Star Wars: Journey to Batuu, players will leave their homes to travel to the planet of Batuu where they'll have to make a choice on which faction to work with, as the actions their Sims take will lead to control of the Black Spire Outpost. Sims can choose to support Rey and Vi Moradi as part of the Resistance, pledge loyalty to the First Order under Kylo Ren or shift their focus to gaining credits with Hondo Ohnaka and the scoundrels. As Sims embark on exciting missions, they'll increase their reputation, unlock new artifacts and one-of-kind clothing, customize their own droids and create a coveted lightsaber. After players leave Batuu and return home, they can even bring back some of these items, like their lightsaber, to enjoy with other Sims they've already created.
Travelers could also shop from the following vendors: Dok-Ondar in his Den of Antiquities, Savi in his workshop, and Mubo in his Droid Depot. Travelers could buy food and drinks from Oga's Cantina, the Milk Stand, and "Cookie" Strono Tugs, along with other restaurants.
The game included new characters of various species, including Zabrak, Twi'lek, Abednedo, Human, Bith, Mirialan, and Weequay. These characters were classified as either bartenders, vendors, scoundrels, and Batuu citizens. Travelers could interact with these new characters as part of quests, asking them their opinions on Batuu, the Resistance, and the First Order.
Players could complete missions to gain reputation with three factions: Scoundrels, the Resistance, and the First Order.
To gain reputation with the scoundrel faction the travelers spoke with Hondo Ohnaka and completed missions assigned to them. Missions include gathering intel, acquiring a package for Hondo, and joining him on a mission.
The First Order Edit
To gain reputation with the First Order the travelers spoke with Lt. Agnon and completed missions assigned to them, eventually meeting Kylo Ren.
The Resistance Edit
To gain reputation with the Resistance the travelers spoke with Vi Moradi and completed missions assigned to them, eventually meeting Rey.
Non-canon content Edit
Certain aspects of game play are not considered canon: Individual's characters are not added as canonical persons, but rather serve the space of a traveler visiting Batuu, similar to the Rogue One: X-Wing VR player character. If there are relationships that players choose to enter into with NPCs, these are likewise not considered canon.
October 2014 updateEdit
Female sims, teen and older, could wear a themed Leia Organa with the appearances of Leia Organa, consisting of a fake hairpiece and a full outfit, each designed to mimic Organa's classic appearance in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.
May 2015 updateEdit
Costumes made available in this content update were also converted for use by all genders in the June 2016 update. As with the 2014 update, all costumes from this update were added to The Sims Mobile in December 2019.
December 2019 updateEdit
Another content update was released on December 12, 2019, adding a cosmetic statue of The Child from The Mandalorian to the game. Players were then able to place the statue on any lot in the world. This same content is also available in another title, The Sims Mobile.
