Death is a feature in Sims Freeplay that you unlock in the Life Dreams & Legacies Quest. The player is first introduced to this feature when they are forced to sacrifice a Sim, leaving behind a Silver Life Orb. Afterwards, all Senior Sims, once they reach the end of their life stage, will freeze in place, have an exclamation mark above their head and have a spell beneath them.

If tapped, a prompt will ask whether you want to reverse their age to the beginning of their Senior life stage, or let them pass on, leaving behind an orb and XP. The orbs can then be sold for Simoleons, passed on to another sim to fulfill their life dream or used to stop aging.

In 2017, players can now reverse aging for their Sims for free. 


  • When this feature was first introduced in the Life Dreams update in 2014, many players were shocked at the decision to kill off their Sims, since many of them became attached. Because of this, a lot of players either abandoned Sims FreePlay or uninstalled the game.
