Official descriptionEdit

Year-round fun for your Sims

Add weather to your Sims’ lives to tell new stories, enjoy seasonal activities and celebrate heartfelt holidays with The Sims™ 4 Seasons. Make the most out of the weather all year round, from crisp snowfalls to sweltering heat – every world is affected by seasons in unique ways. Create a winter story with ice skating, befriend a magical scarecrow at the fall harvest, share a spring fling during a downpour or host a summer pool party. Gather friends and family to celebrate holidays complete with traditions, gifts and special guests. Stay warm or keep cool with all-new outfits to brave the elements. Even begin a blossoming gardening career as a botanist or by crafting floral arrangements!

KEY FEATURES

Experience impactful weather. Enjoy four stunning seasons and dynamically changing weather that affects all aspects of your Sims’ lives. From hot and sunny to blustery and snowy, every world’s climate is unique and impacts your Sims’ choices, relationships and daily activities. Control the elements to summon thunderstorms, clear up overcast skies or jump between seasons.

Revel in seasonal activities. Year-round activities provide Sims fun and entertaining ways to enjoy the seasons. Bundle up to build a snow pal with friends, create snow angels or perform cool tricks at the skating rink. Toss on a raincoat to splash in a spring shower and explore the outdoors to earn badges as a scout. Dress Sims in new swimwear to cool off in the sprinkler or play in the kiddie pool. Harvest honey in the fall, play in leaves or have child Sims make homemade holiday crafts.

Celebrate the holidays. Decorate your home and bring Sims together to celebrate heartfelt holiday traditions. Ring in the new year with a celebration, enjoy a romantic date during Love Day or gather the family for a bountiful harvest feast. Watch as your Sims count down the calendar days until Winterfest, where presents are gifted, decorations are hung, and Father Winter pays a visit. You can even create custom holidays and choose how your Sims celebrate.

Grow your gardening career. Create beautiful bouquets and unearth new discoveries in the gardening career. With a newfound green thumb as a floral designer, Sims craft flower arrangements and make deliveries around town. More scientific Sims can become a botanist, where they’ll analyze plants, write scientific papers and gain notoriety to earn grants. Advance your Sim’s budding talents to unlock fresh skills, new outfits and handy objects.

CalendarEdit

The four seasonal holidays will be automatically added to the calendar. In addition, other 'holidays' (e.g. Build mode sales rebates) will appear at random dates in the calendar.  Players can also add custom holidays, delete or edit preloaded ones, or manually replicate them so that they occur on a different date.   

Players can also use the calendar to schedule various parties and invite other Sims to such. Players can specify both the date and time of the event. To aid players with scheduling events, the calendar will show when Sims will be at work and school.

TriviaEdit

  • Seasons is the first expansion pack to share the same name across three generations of The Sims (The Sims 2: SeasonsThe Sims 3: Seasons, and The Sims 4: Seasons).
  • Unlike the previous weather-themed expansion packs, Seasons does not feature variable snow accumulation, hail or sunburns.
  • Unlike previous iterations, Seasons does not allow users to customise the order of seasons or make a season year-round.  However, users can choose the length for each season (7, 14, or 28 days).  Additionally, Sims may upgrade the weather-controlling machine to change the current season to the next scheduled one.  
  • Worlds have different weather for their current season. For example, in Oasis Springs there might be no snow in winter, while Willow Creek would be covered in snow.
  • The pack includes recolours of some objects from The Sims 4: Spooky Stuff and The Sims 4: Holiday Celebration Pack.
  • This is first expansion pack for The Sims 4 to not feature any new worlds. SimGuruKate has stated on Twitter that the developers instead wanted to "focus entirely on making the existing worlds (and all their neighborhoods), as gorgeous as possible for all four seasons."[2]
