The Sims 4 have dropped a brand new Delivery Express (SDX) this month on June 20, featuring a new R&B station arriving to the base game alongside book recolours and a new scenario to challenge yourself with.

Following May's previous SDX update, which saw the Caliente family receiving a new and improved makeover in The Sims 4 and the introduction of some Jewish foods, Maxis are keeping the updates coming with some additional goodies to utilise in your save files.

The latest update continues the trend of bringing great additions to the game, so if you want to get a first look at June 2023's SDX in The Sims 4 and all that arrived in the free update, read on.

To implement the SDX update in The Sims 4, all you need to do is to launch your game and ensure you've followed the below steps:

  • In the main menu, you should receive a pop-up in the right-hand corner to say a new update has begun (or to ask for you to allow the update depending on if you have game updates set to auto-download).
  • If you haven't yet done this, navigate to your 'Game Options' menu.
  • Next, select the 'Sims Delivery' tab on the left side of the screen and then tick the box labelled as 'Automatically Download'.

That's it! You'll now be able to access the latest updates to The Sims 4 - neat, right?

Note: The following game additions are free for all base game players.

The Sims 4 Delivery Express updates (June 2023)

R&B music station in The Sims 4

Arguably one of the coolest parts of The Sims 4's latest SDX drop is that of the R&B Station. New music to listen to (and Simlish music at that) is always a welcome treat, and this station sees the arrival of a Simlish version of Baby Tate's 'What's Love' alongside plenty of others.

If you're looking for a new challenge, Maxis has added a brand-new scenario to get stuck into in-game: the Family Fortune scenario. Here, you'll play with the Landry Household, compiled of Ava, Eddie, Nyssa, and Lila. 

The scenario centres around these family members and Nyssa's family attempting to "get their hands on their grandmother's fortune". There are a few potential story endings here too - and it's marked as being an Intermediate difficulty. 

Book decor new swatches

If you're a decorator, this one's for you. Perfectly coinciding with the recent Book Nook kit release, this SDX update for June adds a few additional swatch recolours to the base game 'Vintage Books' decorative item to decorate your Sims' homes with. While there's not too much more to say here, who doesn't love new swatches? Yay for recolours!

In the image above, you can see the full range of swatches for the books, including the new recolours.

So that's everything on the most recent SDX in The Sims 4 - what're you most excited to take a look at in-game? For more news and guides, be sure to check out our Sims homepage for all of the latest, or find out how to enter CAS full edit mode in The Sims 4 to overhaul your own Sims.
