Top 6 Things You Need to Know About Outdoor Retreat

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.

The Sims 4 Releasing on Mac in February

Today is a very exciting day if you’re a Mac user like me! Aaron Houts, one of The Sims 4 designers, has confirmed that The Sims 4 on Mac will launch in February!

No confirmed date yet, but from the time it has took the team to develop the Mac version I anticipate that Sims 4 will be a native port.

In addition to this, EA have confirmed that if you have purchased the game on PC then you will not have to buy it again to gain access to the Mac version.


The Sims 4: Game Update (13th January 2015)

Happy New Year Simmers!

It’s January, a new year has begun. There’s still a sun and moon in the sky, the rain falls, steam rises, and Plumbobs rotate – there must be a patch!

We had a few important fixes ready to roll to address some big community concerns, primarily the inability to load into a lot from a pre-existing save game, as well as a performance issue with large My Library trays that could cause the game to fail to load, and we wanted to get these fixes out to you! In addition to few others that we have at the ready.

Thank you again for all your feedback and help, we are humbled by your commitment and diligence.
