The Sims 4 StrangerVille Is Now on Console

Via: The Sims

Hold onto your cowboy hats, Simmers! There’s a deep, dark secret afoot and your Sim can solve the mystery in The Sims™ 4 StrangerVille!* And the best part is, the strangeness is now available on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One.

Okay, What the Heck is StrangerVille?
Welcome to StrangerVille, a desert town shrouded in mystery where townspeople are acting bizarre for unknown reasons. Basically, it’s a place that holds an enigmatic secret. A secret your Sim can reveal! Is there a conspiracy? Will this seemingly odd force possess your Sim? You’ll soon find out as your Sims encounter strange plants, interact with peculiar devices, and uncover the story of a secret lab. Read on to find out how to solve the mystery.

How Can My Sim Prepare?

Your Sim will meet many locals and search for clues, but first thing’s first: They should definitely dress the part in StrangerVille-style clothes. Desert-inspired outfits, military fatigues, and even secret agent attire will get your Sim in the mystery-solving spirit. Will it be the bomber jacket and distressed jeans? A prairie-style dress? Or, the super-serious lab coat? Get your Sim prepared in any way you like.

Where Do I Find Clues?

Okay, you’re geared up. So, where do you head off to? You could get to know locals (and secrets) at the watering hole, where Sims of the law enforcement variety tend to hang out. Another important spot? The library, where your Sim can meet scientists who may or may not know important information. But, your Sim can’t be in two places at once. So, you may have to rely on some “equipment” to gather more information.

What Is This Madness?!

When it starts getting really crazy out there, DON’T PANIC! EVEN THOUGH THIS PART IS ALL IN CAPS! Weird weather, odd behavior, and things that glow? Sheesh. The mystery just keeps unfolding. But you just may be one step closer to solving the puzzle.

Is There A Comic About This Pack?

Yes, there is! Wow, so glad you asked. Click here for a one-of-a-kind, freakin’ awesome series of comics about StrangerVille. We hope you enjoy reading them. Smiley-face emoji.

To help make sure you can hit the ground running with Season One: Mother’s Day Madness – we have put together this short FAQ! Good luck Simmers!

Q – What is SimChase?

A – An exciting race-styled gameshow where your Sim competes against a Rival Sim to complete crazy challenges. The first Sim to reach the daily checkpoint wins daily prizes. First to reach the end wins an awesome grand prize!

 

Q – How do I start SimChase?

Q- Who is that Sim at the top of the progress bar?

That’s your Rival who your Sim is racing against. Keep an eye on their progress because if they reach the Checkpoint first, they earn the Checkpoint Prize.

 

Q – The Rival has a circle next to their portrait and a grey portion on their progress bar. What do they mean?

The circle is a timer that displays how close they are to finishing their current challenge. The grey portion on the progress bar shows how much they will progress when they finish that challenge.

 

Q – So if the Rival can beat me to a Prize. Do I miss out on that Prize?

A – SimChase is a race so yes, the Rival has earned that Prize.

 

So if I missed a prize, can I still catch up?

A – Absolutely! Overtake your Rival and win any prizes that are left. This includes the Grand Prize at the end.

 

I’m falling behind what can I do?

At the end of the Daily Challenge Set in the SimChase menu there is an option to use SP to skip the Day’s Challenges Set. Also, when a Challenge is active, you can skip that Challenge in the SimChase Menu!

 

Q – What’s the Chase Token Checkpoint Prize and what do I do with it?

A – Chase Tokens let you take a spin in the Roadworks tab in the SimChase Menu.

 

Q – Alright then, what’s the Roadworks Spin?

A – The Roadworks Spin gives you a chance to sabotage your Rival’s progress or win advantages for your Sim!

 

Q – Who’s this Kam Ham fellow & where is the Nightclub check-in again?

A –Kam Ham is the handsome host of SimChase! During and event he can always be found in the Nightclub to the right on the SimTown map.

 

Q – I have completed all my Challenges, and I seem to be blocked and can’t progress to the next day’s challenges.

A – That is correct. You must wait for the next daily Challenge Set to unlock.

 

Q – How do I find out more about SimChase?

A – Check the ‘i’ tab in the SimChase Menu for more information about the Roadwork spin results and the Rival’s progress.
