Latest Sims 4 Patch Fixes Incest Bug, Rapid Aging

In keeping with Sims 4 tradition, the new High School Years expansion and its accompanying free update broke many features in both the base game and other expansions. A new patch has now been released which fixes some of the biggest bugs, including one that caused rapid aging and another that made sims want to hang out with their family members.

The infamous incest bug appeared in the game as part of the Wants and Fears system, which was reintroduced from previous Sims titles. An unrelated but similar bug resulting from the High School Years update, which saw adult sims tagging teenagers in inappropriate Social Bunny posts, has also been fixed.
