Werewolves are finally coming to The Sims 4

On Thursday, EA and Maxis revealed the Werewolves Game Pack will be available in The Sims 4 for PC, Mac, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One on June 16.

Vampires have been in the game since 2017, but fans have been long awaiting the appearance of the fuzzy fiends in the latest edition of The Sims. In a new reveal trailer, we got to see some of the new features this Game Pack has to offer. With the Werewolves pack, Simmers can take their own prowl under the moon and participate in activities specially designed for when the sun goes down. And, of course, they’ll get to take on new, wild and wolfish identities.

The Werewolves game pack takes players to the urban fantasy world of Moonwood Mill, a once grand lumber town that’s now seen better days. Here they’ll learn how to “craft and customize their Sims’ werewolf identities.” In short, players will be able to fully customize their werewolves’ appearances and personalities in the Create a Sim menu. The human and werewolf Sim forms will be connected to start, but you can unlink them to have your beastly self look as different as you want from your human side. You’ll also be able to have your werewolves join one of Moowood Mill’s two packs – the Moonwood Collective and the Wildfangs, transform into their beastly shape, howl at the moon, and maybe even meet their “fated mate.” The packs have their own social structures, responsibilities, and rules, so consider your membership carefully. You may even become alpha one day.

There are also plenty of secrets and bits of lore about Moonwood Mill players can find, if they’re willing to dig deep enough. A network of tunnels called “The Underground” runs beneath the town, allowing Simmers find mysteries that lie below and shortcuts for navigating.

A deeper dive look at The Sims 4 Werewolves Game Pack will be streamed on The Sims YouTube and Twitch channels on June 10 at 11 a.m. PDT before its launch on June 16.
