The Sims 4 • Expansion pack • Electronic Arts • Maxis
The next expansion for The Sims 4 is Snowy Escape, which specializes in winter fun.
While we’re not 100% sure what this expansion adds, judging by the teaser image posted on The Sims Twitter account, we will guess that sledding, winter sports, and hiking are going to be added as activities for your sims. There also appears to be an Asian-inspired area or neighborhood to explore.
The Seasons expansion already added winter and related holidays to the sport, but it looks like that Snowy Escape will focus more on vacation activities. More information is going to be revealed in the trailer scheduled for Tuesday at 11 a.m. EDT.
The Sims 4 Snowy Escape last expansion pack, Eco-Living, was released in 2019. In September, Electronic Arts released a replacement Star Wars-themed Game Pack, called Star Wars: Journey to Batuu — which was received with mixed enthusiasm.
A recent note from The Sims team talked about adding more skin tones to the sport, but also noted that highly desired features like babies, cars, and bunk beds, wouldn’t be a neighborhood of the Snowy Escape expansion. This doesn’t mean those features won’t come around, but they won’t be coming quite yet.
