The Sims 4 Spooky Stuff, Coming Soon. Your Sims are in for a scream

Written by Snow on . Posted in Stuff Pack

Your Sims are in for a scream

Double, trouble boils below;
Tombstones smoke and caldrons glow.
Tempt the Spooky Candy Bowl,
Carve a Pumpkin for passed souls!

In other words, we’re happy to announce that The Sims 4 Spooky Stuff* is coming on September 29, and comes with the stuff you need to plan and execute the perfect Spooky Party. 

Transform your Sim’s home with ghoulishly fun decorations, including creepy paintings, spider webs, and all manner of tattered furniture. Want to temporarily (or… permanently) turn your Sim’s home into a creepy house of horrors? Go for it.

The Sims 4 Spooky Stuff includes two new gameplay objects: the mischievous Spooky Candy Bowl and a new Pumpkin Carving Station. Your Sims can make festive works of carved art, creating the jack-o-lantern of their dreams. And once they’re done, Ghost Sims can take a candle-lit pumpkin, put it on their head, and haunt up the night!

If you’re looking to throw a Spooky Party (a new type of party in The Sims 4 Spooky Stuff), you can do just that. Besides being able to decorate your Sim’s home with the new objects to set the eerie mood, there are also three new ghoulish recipes: an Eyeball Cheese Plate, Zombie Cake, and Spooky Cookies. You can even ask other Sims for party treats (though don’t be surprised if they play a trick on your Sim instead).

A variety of new costumes are also available to help make your party stand out, from Pirates and Ninjas to Super Llamas and Fairies, there are a bunch of great outfits for Sims young and old. Of course, these costumes aren’t restricted to use at Spooky Parties, either – if you want to dress your Sim like a Witch year-round, you can totally do that.

One Year of The Sims 4!!

Written by Snow on . Posted in The Sims 4

You’ve Made 92,800,000 Sims in The Sims 4’s First Year!

And Many More!

Wow, time really flies when you’re playing with life! It was one year ago this week that The Sims 4 released worldwide, and I’d like to thank everyone who’s played the game so far and joined us in the world of The Sims. We had a blast making the game, and every day we as developers are in awe of your creativity as players.

TS4 Anniversary infographic Final IT 744624

You’ve played a lot of The Sims 4 in the last twelve months, so much so that we’ve put together an infographic to show off the mind-blowing numbers. Almost 93 million Sims created? 235 million WooHoos?! You’ve been really busy this year! Check out more awesome stats at the bottom of this blog.

But releasing The Sims 4 was only the beginning – we’ve spent the last year listening to your feedback and delivering new gameplay experiences. We saw that you wanted new job options, so we released an Update with new Careers for your Sims to enjoy. When you told us you wanted more space for your Sims to live, work and play, we added the world of Newcrest. You told us you wanted more building options, so we released an Update in July with locked doors and half walls.

Your feedback and passion have made the first year of The Sims 4 a great one – and will help make the next year even better! We have so much great stuff planned, including The Sims 4 Get Together Expansion Pack*.

Again, I can’t tell you enough how much we at Maxis appreciate your support for The Sims 4. We’ve had a really, really exciting year. The Sims 4is going to keep getting bigger and better every month, and we love having you along with us on this journey.

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!
