Top 6 Things You Need to Know About Outdoor Retreat

14 January 2015 Comment

The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat is here, complete with a new destination filled with new gameplay possibilities, new objects, activities and a whole new skill. No matter how you play the game, this game pack will have something exciting for you!

Here are the top six things you need to know:

1. Wander into an All-New Destination: Your Sims can now make an escape from their everyday lives into the pine-filled air of Granite Falls. They can venture deep into the woods to discover new surprises, including dangerous and wondrous herbs, and new species of insects.  Let’s just hope that your Sims aren’t squeamish about creepy crawlers.

2. Set Up The Perfect Camp: No camping trip is complete without the proper supplies. Your Sims will be able to purchase a tent and outfit themselves in new hiking gear. For the less adventurous Sims, they can still camp out in the comfort of their backyard.

3. Enjoy Unique Outdoor Activities: Lay back for a night of stargazing and let your Sims’ imagination run wild! Join a game of horseshoes and take a hike in the national park or try to find the hermit rumored to live in the deepest parts of the forest.

4. Gather around the Campfire: Treat your Sims to some roasted marshmallows and tell fireside stories of adventure, wonder and fright for the whole gang. Kick back and enjoy a quick refreshment from the all-new cooler!

5. Create Exotic Remedies as an Herbalist:  Build your Sim’s herbalism skill to create a variety of useful remedies, from insect repellent to a concoction that can help soothe a tense Sim. This new skill will be useful to help Sims identify which wild plants are edible or poisonous.  

6. Bear Costumes: The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat experience wouldn’t be complete without Bear costumes. That’s right, big, furry, sneak up on your campsite at night because you left food out kind of bears. Just imagine what kind of fun your Sim will have wandering around the campsite in that outfit. In fact, you can even take the costume home and see what sorts of mischief your Sim can get into!

So get your Sims out in the fresh air and give them the outdoor retreat of a lifetime.  We're really excited about this game pack and can't wait to see what kind of stories you create!
