A free update to The Sims 4 is now available and it includes pools, as promised last month.

Pools can be created using Build mode, which means you can create all sorts of nifty swimming areas – even diagonally – easily and fast.

Players also have the ability to adjust pool depth by adjusting wall heights, and even create rooftop and infinity pools.

There is also a new line of swimwear in Create A Sim, which will ensure they look smashing as they sit along the pool ledge and chat with other Sims.

The funnest bit? Death by Drowning is back as are ghosts walking around in swimwear.

Have a look at the pool screenshots and trailer below, and log-in to your Origin account to apply the latest The Sims 4 update.
