Check your Origins later because the first game update will be today via Origin and comes with ghosts, gnomes, more eye colours, bug fixes and costumes!
Ghosts: When Sims die, they now become ghosts that can appear at night. Sims can befriend them and ask them to join the household. Ghosts keep traits and skills and can do anything a Sim can, although they start a new career. Ghosts are also affected by emotions. They can start fires when they are angry and change colour to match their emotion as well as put Sims in the emotion they were when they died.
Star wars Costumes: 4 free costumes will also be coming today: Darth Vader armour, Leia’s dress and hair buns, Luke Skywalker and children can wear Jedi Robes.
Here is the schedule:
Ghosts (October 1st)
Star Wars Costumes (October 1st)
New Gnome (October 1st)
New Eye Colors (October 1st)
Pools (November 2014)
Careers (December 2014)
So basically confirming that the game was shipped before it was ready in order to match a ship date that should have been delayed in the first place.
