"Lovestruck" will be released at the end of July.

In the latest expansion for The Sims 4, Sims can date and be in a relationship with multiple characters at once, game maker EA Games announced. Players will also be able to date online through an in-game app.

The “Lovestruck” expansion for the game is all about love and dating in all its forms and is set in the city of Ciudad Enamorada, which is called “a gorgeous city in love” and is described as the perfect place for any romantic encounter. The city has singles bars, gyms and other places where you can meet a potential partner.

However, if a sim is having trouble meeting someone in real life, there is the Cupid’s Corner app, where you can take a selfie with your sim and upload a dating profile.

In the expansion, it will also be possible for your sim to be polyamorous, dating and being in a relationship with more than one person at a time. With the “Romantic Boundaries” feature, you can set your Sims’ levels of jealousy and boundary-setting.

“This allows for Sims to date multiple Sims without impact to other relationships”, EA Games writes.

The expansion will be released on July 25 this year on PC, Xbox and PlayStation 4 and 5.
