There’s a new official blog on TheSims.com that talks about what a game pack is for The Sims 4, and announces the first game pack, Outdoor Retreat, coming in January 2015!
I have been working with members of The Sims 4 team on something fun. I am excited to share it with you all, as I know it’s going to allow you to tell even more unique and wonderful stories with your Sims.
Two words. Game Pack. What is a Game Pack you ask? Game Packs are unique to The Sims 4. Our first Game Pack – The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat – will be coming out in January 2015, but before we talk about that, let’s talk about what a Game Pack is.
About nine years ago, during The Sims 2 days, we introduced Stuff Packs to The Sims franchise to change up the way you could customize your Sim stories. Stuff Packs were focused on a specific theme and included clothing, hairstyles, furniture and décor.
For The Sims 4, we wanted to continue that tradition while giving you even MORE opportunities to craft the stories you want, since a Game Pack provides new gameplay features, new objects and new clothing based around one central theme. Being able to expand your gameplay through a Game Pack allows us to give you some of the things you’ve been asking for and it’s something we are really excited about.
So, what can you expect from the first Game Pack in early 2015? Well, you’re going to take your Sims to Granite Falls to visit and explore an all-new destination. The woods are packed with gameplay possibilities. Campfire songs, weenie roasts and bear costumes, oh my!
So there’s a little tasty news to chew on, keep an eye out for more!
The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat Game Pack will be available in January 2015 for $20 (USD). More information will be available in January.
