'Sims 4' Update: February 21 Patch Brings Bug Fixes and More

On Thursday, EA released a new Sims 4 game update that hammers out several game errors and other bugs ahead of the new StrangerVille DLC.

Below we've put together a complete rundown of everything the new February 21 patch notes have changed or fixed.
