PostSubject: Game Pack coming Next Week!    Fri Dec 19, 2014 2:06 pm

SGGrant just posted this on the Official Sims website


Quote :
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!

Later, Simmers!

-SimGuru Grant

The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat Game Pack will be available in January 2015 for $20. More information will be available in January.

This is exciting news! Game Packs sound so much better than Stuff Packs. Lots more content and interactions for about the same price as a Stuff Pack that only had ... well ... stuff.

Cool! Too bad the bear is just a costume, though. A bear wandering around the woods, trying to steal food from campers...could be funny.

Hmm, we'll see. Think I'll wait awhile and see how soon it will go on sale. Kind of a cute throwback to Sims 1. It is better that it adds game play, more like a mini EP.

Looks like the worlds with their venues from Sims3.
May be interesting.
I told myself to wait and see, - but knowing myself ... I'll have to hide my PayPal password to not run and spend money on the first sight of new Sims content lol!

Kotaku: You mention that that the game pack will add “new gameplay features” into the mix, but it sounds like most of the additions specified are specific assets/bits of content — outdoor cooking and costumes. Are you adding new activities that Sims can participate in as well?
EA: Yes, we have some really great new things for Sims to do. Sims can partake in new group activities like the campfire and horseshoes, try their hand at mastering potions with the new herbalism skill, wander through the wilderness, collect all new plants, insects and use them to create herbal remedies and new cooking recipes.
Kotaku: What sort of destination/area is granite falls, exactly? is it a new public lot? will sims be able to set up houses there, or anything like that? can you build buildings there, regardless of what sims (if any) live there, or is it more wilderness focused? will you be able to mess around with any of the geographic features in build mode at all?
EA: Granite Falls is a brand new destination in The Sims 4. When you arrive you’ll be in a Campground neighbourhood where your Sims can set-up camp among the trees or rent a fully furnished cabin. Your Sims will only have what they bring with them — any additional supplies they will need they will have to purchase at the Ranger Station — but players may edit the Campground lots through Manage Worlds and build whatever they like on them.
The second neighbourhood in Granite Falls is Granite Falls National Park, which is a lush forest full of plants, insects, and scenic vistas to discover and explore. There are rumours of a mysterious hermit who lives high up in the mountains, but no one knows quite where…

Ooooooooooooooooooo....sounds pretty darn cool to me!

That looks pretty! Hermit in the mountains? That reminded me of the vacation place in TS2 where the Sims had tea with a guru? on the top of a mountain.

I had seen it posted on the Official forum that the Guru's on twitter had all changed the avi's to the batgnome. When that happens we can expect something to be coming down the pipeline. I went on twitter to confirm this as in the past people were posting the changing of the avi's for some of the dev's and it wasn't true.

Another post pictured the actual official statement taken right from in game on the home screen I do believe.

I haven't gone in game yet to see if this is there or still there. It's still there on the home screen. I just wish they'd give an actual date, next week does have 7 days in it starting with Sunday and ending with Saturday.

I can't wait to see some pictures of game play from all of you.  I don't see myself getting this since I haven't seriously played the sims 4 since I tried the rosebud challenge back in October.  I've been having fun doing some recolors but I've only shared a small percentage of what I've created.  The Sims 3 and Caw has been calling me back.  I just so enjoyed the world building aspect in Sims 3.

Sorry you did not enjoy Sims4 but I guess it is not for everyone.  There are a few buggy glitches that still need to be ironed out. I am hoping there is a more permanent fix soon. Bartenders seem stuck at the moment and I still get the ocassional 'unable to cook' glitch. Closing the game and doing a Repair fixes that at least.

I launched Origin to do the latest patch update and while it was installing I happened to see this!

Could it be?

That looked like a 'real' bear in the video. Not a costume. But I couldn't play the video again to verify.
If it's a real bear I might get the ? ( keep forgetting what the add ons are called now)
