The new Sims 4 Paranormal Stuff Pack will be released on 26 January 2021, with a pre-pack patch set to go live this week.
The deep-dive live stream of the pack is also scheduled for this week (22 January at 11 Pacific Time or 21:00 South African time).
At first glance, the pack looks really, really good. Sim Guru Connor, one of the developers behind Nifty Knitting, seems to have pulled off yet another spooktacular effort.
Another notable thing about the release of the Paranormal Stuff Pack is that there is a clear effort being made to keep the communication channels open, similar to how Nifty Knitting was handled. This is something that many players felt was sorely lacking last year, so this is an encouraging start.
Sim Gurus have been answering questions and teasing bits and pieces of what players can expect ahead of the release of The Sims 4: Paranormal Stuff as well as the pre-pack patch.
Sims 4 Paranormal Stuff: Pack and patch details
There is some good and not-so-good news for this pack, we?ll start with the latter, but let’s first preface this by saying that ? without having played the pack, it looks like a lot of thought has gone into the little things like cross-pack integration. Right, now let’s start with what we know so far.
For the sake of brevity and to keep this article from just being a bunch of embedded Tweets, we’ll transcribe some questions to follow a more Q&A format and include short summary with key points about the features coming with the Paranormal Stuff Pack and the patch.
We’ll also take a deeper look at some of the key features like the return of Bonehilda and questions about who can WhooHoo with whom.
Questions answered by Sim Guru Conor will be pre-fixed with SGC and those answered by Sim Guru Ninja will be pre-fixed with SGN.
Ghost babies and graveyards in The Sims 4
So, first, the not so great news. Although, considering how expansive this pack seems to be (for a Stuff Pack!), we’re not going to quibble.
Improved babies is something players have wanted for a long time in The Sims 4. Whether or not they will come this year, we have no idea. However, there won’t be any “ghost babies” coming to the game.
However, Sim Guru Conor did say that players can ‘always make real babies with our new Stuff Pack Sims”.
And while many players had hoped for an official graveyard or cemetery type of lot – especially after the graveyard was added in The Sims 4: Snowy Escape expansion, that’s not going to part of this pack.
Below you’ll find a few more answers to popular questions the Gurus have been answering. The questions are paraphrased and the answers edited for style and brevity.
