The Sims 4 is getting geared up for the Halloween season with Spooky Stuff, its latest DLC, out tomorrow September 29. “Transform your Sim’s home with ghoulishly fun decorations, including creepy paintings, spider webs, and all manner of tattered furniture,” reads the announcement. “Want to temporarily (or… permanently) turn your Sim’s home into a creepy house of horrors? Go for it.”

“Double, trouble boils below;

Tombstones smoke and cauldrons glow.

Tempt the Spooky Candy Bowl,

Carve a Pumpkin for passed souls!”

Spooky Stuff will include two new gameplay objects for your Sims to interact with: the Spooky Candy Bowl and the Pumpkin Carving Station. You’ll be able to carve up some jack-o-lanterns and even have your Ghost Sims put the finished candlelit pumpkin on their heads for some haunting fun.

There’s also a new kind of party called a Spooky Party where you can decorate your home with the new items and cook some Halloween-themed foodstuffs–the Eyeball Cheese Plate, Zombie Cake, and Spooky Cookies. Other Sims will be able to trick-or-treat you, and yes, tricks are on the table. And, of course, the DLC comes with a bunch of new costumes of the Halloween variety–pirates, ninjas, super llamas, fairies, witches. The costumes will be available all year round.

The Sims 4 came out September 2 2014, and has been releasing DLC packs intermittently since then, including Get To Work, Get Together, Outdoor Retreat, Spa Day, Luxury Party Stuff, Perfect Patio Stuff, and Cool Kitchen Stuff. The Stuff Packs, including the new Spooky Stuff, add things like objects, home decorations, and costumes.  The Sims is available on Windows PC and Mac. We reviewed the base game without any expansion packs here on Pixelkin back in September.
