Enjoy some non-denominational holiday fun in the latest expansion pack for the Sims 4 – Seasons. The Sims 4 Seasons is available now on PC and Mac, through Origin, and requires The Sims 4 base game. It’s developed by Maxis and published by Electronic Arts.
If you can’t tell by the name, Seasons adds a new weather system tied to the four seasons, as well as several new holidays to celebrate.
In Winter Sims can ice skate and share hot cocoa while hoping for a visit from Father Winter during Winterfest. Harvestfest during the Fall features a large banquet, while Sims can go on special dates during Love Day.
Players can also custom build their own holidays and decide how they are celebrated.
“The Sims 4 Seasons expansion pack provides even more ways for players to tell exciting, relevant stories in The Sims 4,” said Grant Rodiek, Senior Producer, Maxis. “The weather and passage of the seasons changes your Sims’ lives in delightful ways, whether it’s tossing on a raincoat to splash around in a Spring shower, shoving snow in a rival’s face in Winter, or harvesting some sweet honey in Fall. There is tons of new gameplay, challenges, and stories to tell. This is personally my favorite pack and our team was thrilled to finally craft this fan-favorite expansion. We cannot wait to see how players will incorporate the weather into their game.”
The other big feature added in Seasons is the gardening career. Sims can either pursue an artsy path by becoming a floral designer, delivering flower arrangements around town. Or they can analyze plants in a more scientific pursuit and become a botanist. New talents unlock new skills, outfits, and rewards.
The Sims 4 Seasons is available now for digital download on Origin. It’s rated T for Teen by the ESRB.
