The Sims 4 Snowy Escape Expansion Pack Takes Players to a Mountain Retreat
The game's next expansion is inspired by Japan.
The next expansion pack for the lifestyle simulation game The Sims 4 is called Snowy Escape, and it will take players to a new area called Mt. Komorebi.
Inspired by Japan, this location will allow Sims to practice new skills (rock climbing, skiing, and snowboarding), as well as go sledding down snowy hills. You’ll be able to dress your Sims in new clothing, visit natural hot springs, explore hiking trails, and more.
Mt. Komorebi will also contain rentable vacation lots and areas where you can build your own homes. You can decorate these spaces with new items, such as shoji doors, tile roofs, and tatami mats. The expansion will also allow you to add koi to decorative fountains and create your own rock gardens.
Finally, this Expansion will add two new features -- “Lifestyles” and “Sentiments” -- to the game. On its website, EA (the publisher of The Sims 4) shared a bit more information about these new features:
“Unlock new personality and relationship effects with the introduction of Lifestyles and Sentiments. Lifestyles manifest in response to your Sim’s actions and habits, changing their behaviors appropriately. Similarly, shared experiences inspire Sentiments and have a lasting impact on Sims’ relationships to each other, affecting their social interactions.”
The Sims 4 Snowy Escape Expansion Pack will be available on consoles and PC on November 13. You’ll need to own the base game of The Sims 4 in order to access this new content.
The Sims 4 is rated T for Teen by the ESRB. While the general gameplay of guiding Sims through their lives is family-friendly, the game does contain a few more mature features, such as the ability for Sims to interact romantically and have children.
