The Sims 4 Snowy Escape expansion pack announced

The Sims 4 Snowy Escape expansion pack

Electronic Arts just announced a new expansion for The Sims 4 called Snowy Escape.

Officially announced yesterday, we gather from the name and the teaser image that The Sims 4 Snowy Escape is a winter-themed expansion pack. Beyond that, though, we were not entirely sure what is included. Now we know.

The 10th expansion pack introduces Mount Komorebi, a new location for Sims looking for a getaway or a new dream home. The Japanese-inspired world offers a variety of activities – from unwinding in the mountain’s onsen bathhouse, meditating on mindful walks, or testing their limits with sports like skiing, snowboarding, and rock climbing.

Here are some more details on the new winter-themed expansion:

The first world in The Sims 4 to introduce both residential homes and rental lots for vacationers, Mt. Komorebi offers three new primary neighborhoods for Sims to take their dream vacation or make the winter locale their home. Players can look forward to more than 130 new Create a Sim items to create various looks to keep their Sims warm and stylish including winter activity wear and both modern everyday and traditional Japanese-inspired fashion.

In addition, the expansion pack offers traditional and modern furniture options for players to design their sanctuary, with unique architectural styles and pieces including shoji doors, windows and screens, tatami mats and paper lanterns. Players can also add extra touches to create their very own oasis, like koi for decorative fountains and a rock garden under the shade of Japanese maple trees.

Snowy Escape is the latest expansion for The Sims 4. EA recently released the Nifty Knitting Stuff Pack and the Star Wars: Journey to Batuu game pack. The last expansion pack, Eco Lifestyle, came out in June.

We expect that there is still more to come in the world of The Sims 4. So stay tuned to Game Freaks 365 for all of your Sims-related news.
