The Sims 4 Get Together Expansion Pack is Coming November 2015

Written by Snow on . Posted in The Sims 4 Get Together

Live it up in Windenburg!

Your Sims’ wanderlust is at a fever pitch. They want to go somewhere totally different – a place where they can make new friends, see new sights, and have new experiences. They want to bust a move at a secret dance party at the Ancient Ruins. They want to enjoy a delicious espresso in a swanky Café. They want to live it up like they never could before. They want something... new. And soon, they’ll get just that.

We’re excited to announce that The Sims 4 Get Together Expansion Pack* releases worldwide this November! Here’s the first trailer, giving just a taste of what it has to offer.

The Sims 4 Get Together introduces Windenburg, a European-inspired World with a mix of vibrant, modern architecture and classic buildings and styles. From the charming countryside, to the bustling town square and luxurious island, Windenburg is filled with new things for your Sims to see and do.

But you’re not going to be exploring these new sights alone. As the name suggests, Get Together is all about your Sim having fun with their friends, whether they’re leading their own exclusive Clubs or exploring Windenburg.

Your Sims will be able to join different Clubs, each with their own interests, personalities, and styles. They have defined behaviors that dictate how they tend to act, including how they treat other Sims, and what they do or don't like to do. There will be a variety of Clubs waiting for your Sims when you first load up the expansion pack, but you’re also able to create and customize your own. You can set their requirements, decide what behaviors they have, choose their preferred hang outs, and even give them distinct rewards.

Hanging out with groups of friends makes Get Together feel truly unique. Your Sim’s in-game friends will act a lot like your real ones – whether you’re going for a dip in the Natural Pools along the bluffs or just lounging around in the pub, groups will engage in new, exciting ways. Your Sim can take on their friends in a game of foosball, or try on outfits together with the all-new Walk-in Closet. They’ll hang out and share experiences together in fun, new ways.

Your Sims will also be able to level up Dancing and DJing skills, both of which should make for even more energetic gatherings. Pump up the crowd by creating the perfect mix on the DJ booth, or start busting out some new dance moves in an Underground Disco.

We can’t wait to start going into more details on what makes this expansion pack special. Expect to hear more in early October, and get ready to explore Windenburg this holiday season when The Sims 4 Get Together Expansion Pack releases!

Your Sims will look good as they create new delicacies thanks to new hairstyles and apparel perfect for any chef-to-be.

But besides making things look cooler, your Sims will also have a lot more cool stuff to do in the kitchen (pun intended).

Locked Doors and Half Walls Are Now Available in a Free Update!

Written by Snow on . Posted in Patch

Lock that Door

Want to keep customers out of the back room of your Sim’s retail store? Want to lock the door to your Sim’s room so they can crank up the music and have a dance party for one? Want gender-specific changing rooms in your gym? Boot up The Sims 4 and you’ll be able to download an Update to the game that’ll let you do just that! Locked doors are coming to The Sims 4, and they’re going to be free* for everyone who downloads the Update. They’ll be joined by half walls, which will let you divide areas while still keeping them open and modern.

TS4 570 HALF WALLS 01 001a

First, let’s talk about locked doors. After the release of The Sims 4 Get to Work* we heard the calls for employee-only rooms loud and clear, so we made sure to include that option. There are also more standard locks, like the ability to lock a door so only your Sim can get in, or being able to lock it for a household. If you’re tired of random Sims walking into your Sim’s room and taking a nap on their bed at 2:00AM, you’ll be able to prevent that with door locks. We’ve also added new gender-specific doors to the catalog, which open up some cool possibilities for improvements to some of the Venues in the game.

Half walls were exciting to work on, too. Most of the time, we’ve seen players asking for them to put around their counters, so we absolutely included a size that works for that. But we also wanted to allow for more creativity, so we added four additional sizes, bringing the total number of half wall sizes to five.

The three medium heights give you a range of options for living room dividers, borders for stoves and counters, or eye-level spots to hold fancy decorations. They’re also a handy place to put your drink! We also added a low (1-1/2’ height) wall that works great as an architectural border piece, as well as a tall wall that can be used to make enclosed spaces within rooms, especially when using taller full-height walls. Half walls are super easy to place, too – if you’ve ever put a fence down in The Sims 4, you already know how to build a half wall.

The Update is now available, so get ready to start building half walls and locking doors – and don’t forget to share your new creations on The Gallery when you do!

7 Things You Need to Know About The Sims 4 Spa Day Game Pack

Written by Snow on . Posted in Game Pack

Ready to Relax?

The Sims 4 Spa Day Game Pack* is coming on July 14, and we’re really excited for everyone to get their hands on it! In the announcement last week, we talked about how this game pack includes the Spa as a new type of Venue, a bunch of great new objects, and even the new Wellness Skill. Today, we wanted to dig a little deeper into the experiences and gameplay that await when you download the pack.

There are three new Maxis-made Spas, as well as a new Gym. After downloading The Sims 4 Spa Day, you’ll notice four new buildings in your My Library page within The Gallery. There are three Spas, ready to be plopped in any 20x30 lot you want. Aham Ashram Yoga Studio focuses on offering top tier yoga instruction; Center of Center Massage provides highly-trained masseuses and reflexologists to work out all your kinks; and Perfect Balance Spa has everything to enhance your wellness including a sauna and meditation! There’s also a Gym that includes some of the new objects found in the game pack.

You can make your own Spa. Of course, if you’re feeling creative and want to make a Spa of your own, you’re able to do that too. Once you’re done, you can share it to The Gallery and watch as Simmers from all around the world comment on and download your relaxing establishment.

The Wellness Skill gives your Sim a ton of new stuff to do. Practicing yoga, giving massages, and meditating all improve your Sim’s Wellness Skill. The higher the Wellness Skill, the better they’ll be at striking those Yoga poses and giving great, special-purpose massages. They’ll even be able to make new recipes with special benefits!

Meditation masters earn supernatural Interactions. Ever notice that people who Meditate just seem a little… calmer? Almost, like, supernaturally calm? Sims who work up their Wellness become capable of levitation and, eventually, teleportation. Talk about Zen.

Your Sims can WooHoo (or die!) in the Sauna. Saunas are more than just a place to unwind. When two amorous Sims are alone in the room, there’s a special WooHoo only available with the Sauna. But it’s not all fun and games – your Sim might meet their end if they spend too muchtime getting a Superfluous Steaming.    

There’s a new Mud Bath with several soaks to choose from. If your Sim is looking for a safer form of relaxation, the Mud Bath in The Sims 4 Spa Day can give them just that. Laying in the mud can give your Sim the Confident moodlet while the other soaks can have different results: the Rose Garden Scent will have them leaving Flirty, the Baby Soft Skin soak has them feeling Happy. Others soaks can negate negative buffs caused by being Sad or Angry.

Nearly all of the items can be used outside of the Spa. Don’t feel like sending your Sim over to a Spa? No worries – just about everything that your Sims can do in Spas, they can do at home, too. They can install a Sauna in the basement or toss a Meditation Stool in the living room.  Moreover, mud baths and soaks are available in nearly every type of tub!

The Sims 4 Spa Day comes out worldwide on July 14! We can’t wait to hear how your Sims are enjoying their time relaxing in the new Spas!
