The Sims 4: Seasons Cheats & Cheat Codes

The Sims 4: Seasons Cheats & Cheat Codes

The Sims 4: Seasons is the fifth expansion pack for The Sims 4. It was released on June 22, 2018, for the PC version and November 13, 2018, for the PlayStation and Xbox console versions. This expansion is a spiritual successor to the Seasons expansions of Sims 2 and Sims 3. It added seasons and weather mechanics to the game.

This expansion was highly anticipated so players’ Sims could finally experience weather and holidays like the previous games.

The Sims 4: Seasons Premise

This expansion adds weather to your Sims’ lives. They can now enjoy seasonal activities like befriending a scarecrow in the Fall, building snowmen, ice skating, and hosting a summer pool party. Create new experiences in this year-round weather. It also introduces new seasonal clothing, holiday traditions, and a gardening career. Your Sim can now pursue a career as a Botanist or Florist. Decorate your homes with new holiday decor.

And while it adds several pre-made holidays, you can also create your own holiday and give it five traditions. These traditions can be anything from eating a feast, partying, or singing together. Each holiday can also be assigned a decoration theme. This will determine how your Sims and the neighboring Sims NPCs decorate their houses.

You can also now use a calendar next to the phone icon to check upcoming weather forecasts, birthdays, and holidays (both pre-made and the ones the player creates). Surprise holidays, like Talk Like a Pirate Day, can also show up on the calendar several days before they occur.

New Content

Not only does it add Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring, but it also adds major heatwaves and thunderstorms. So make sure to dress your Sims appropriately because they can die from overheating or freezing. All worlds have their own unique climates with different weather patterns. For example, in Oasis Springs there might be no snow in winter, while Willow Creek would be covered in snow.
