The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat and Jungle Adventure are Now on Console

Via: The Sims

Vacations are times to relax, unwind, and reflect. With The Sims™ 4 Outdoor Retreat* and The Sims™ 4 Jungle Adventure* out today on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, your Sims can do just that in so many ways. But, if you’re like us, in the back of your mind you may want to troll your otherwise-relaxed digital buddies. After all, isn’t that what Sims are for? Here are some surefire ways to irk your Sims while they’re supposed to be enjoying their trips in the wilderness.

Outdoor Retreat

When your Sims are gathered around the campfire, they can make new friendships, bond with old buddies, and even roast weenies. But when the sun goes down, you can gear up for some interesting storytelling. If a Sim tells a ghost story after 7 p.m., an actual ghost can show up! If any of your Sims get particularly spooked, this will be the perfect way to send them into a panic.

If your Sims actually enjoy the company of ghosts, there’s more “fun” to be had when the sun comes up. In this pack, eating every type of toxic plant will give your Sim an actual Achievement! If, to you, achievement means some possibly uncomfortable side effects, then you’ve done your job.

Speaking of uncomfortable, how about acquiring the squeamish trait for your Sim, where they’ll get nauseous at the sight of vomiting, insects, and generally dirty environments. Gross for them, entertaining for you!

Jungle Adventure

Annoying Sims in Selvadorada is almost too easy. While out on a tropical escapade, Sims can get pretty grimy. Without proper hygiene, your Sim will develop an awful mood, making their time away from home less than blissful. There is a “waterfall in a bottle” one can purchase from the cantina before striking out on the tropical trail, but this is an article about annoying Sims, remember?

At the Selvadorada market, a machete is one of the most important tools to buy. Sims can cut through thick vines and explore unknown places. But what will Sims do without that trusty machete? Use their hands, of course! Which means that, after a while, they’ll be scraped up real good and likely in a foul mood . . . again.

Yet another item available at the cantina is insect repellant. This handy antidote is very necessary when in the dense, humid jungle. But, alas, you simply “forgot” to get some for your Sim. So, let the inflammation ensue. Healthy Sim skin beware, because this bug’s for you.

Take your Sims camping in Granite Falls with The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat and have a mysterious adventure in Selvadorada with The Sims 4 Jungle Adventure! Both packs release today, December 4, 2018, on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The Sims 4 Seasons is Now on Console

Via: The Sims

The Sims™ 4 Seasons Expansion Pack* is now on Xbox One and PlayStation 4! It’s a true game-changer, and we’re so excited to see what you’ll create and what stories you’ll tell. Here’s a quick overview of what to expect from this pack and how it will change your gameplay (for the better!).

First, Dates
Let’s kick it off with calendars since this is a whole new way to organize your Sims’ lives! You’ll be able to see all upcoming holidays, and each has traditions to complete. The more traditions your Sim finishes, the happier they’ll be during that holiday. You’ll also see your Sim’s household schedule, including when they have to go to work. Plus, check out the forecast so Sims can plan on bundling up or cooling off. Sims’ birthdays will be featured, too, so get excited to party.

Spring
Springtime means puddles, mud, drizzle, and thunderstorms. When it starts to rain, arm Sims with umbrellas and rain boots. Remember, thunderstorms tend to make Sims very tense. Make sure to check the weather forecast before planning that backyard barbecue.

Summer
Break out the iced tea and build an awesome pool, because summer heat will arrive in your Sims’ world faster than you can say “cannonball.” Little ones will love splashing around in the new toddler pool, too. Pro tip: When the temperature rises, make sure to change Sims into their summer outfits or they’ll risk overheating.

Fall
Let the sweater weather begin! Harvestfest comes in the fall, where Sims gather their closest friends and family to celebrate gratitude with the grand meal. Decorate Sims’ homes for this special day, pass the hors d’oeuvres, bake a stupendous dessert, and celebrate with the whole family.

Winter
Did you see that flurry of snow? It must be time for the most heartwarming holiday of them all – Winterfest. Grab the holiday pack to kickstart your home decorating, because it’s about to get festive. Your Sims can give gifts, spark the fireplace, and watch as Father Winter pays a visit! Don’t forget to bundle up your Sims with hats, coats, and gloves, or they may pay the ultimate price. Brrrrr. (Cue dramatic music.) But, you know what’s not dramatic? Ice skating! Build the skating rink for some snowy fun and your Sims can learn sweet spins and tricks.

Fall for The Sims Mobile
We’d also like to announce that The Sims Mobile will be celebrating Harvestfest from November 15 – 21, 2018! During the Live Event, you can earn pie slices to get fall-themed clothing and special objects like the Sparkling Apple Juice Press and Horseshoe Throwing station.

Change your Sims’ lives forever with weather and so much more in The Sims 4 Seasons and The Sims Mobile.
