Over the past 6 months, EA has kept The Sims 4 players well and truly entertained with seasonal content. In October, The Sims 4 Spooky Stuff pack arrived, along with the ‘trick or treat’ game patch, and the free holiday celebration pack also added tacky (yet adorable) Christmas sweaters.
The next holiday to get themed content is Valentine’s Day, which is just 11 short days away. To get Sims and Simmers (those who play the game) in the romantic mood, The Sims 4 Romantic Garden Stuff pack will soon arrive, adding a range of new decorations and gameplay features regarding the annual celebration of love.
The Sims 4 Romantic Garden Stuff
According to EA, The Sims 4 Romantic Garden Stuff will allow players to “create the Victorian garden of [their] dreams”. Players will be able to give outdoor spaces a much-needed makeover with a range of marble furnishings such as spitting lion fountains and Doric columns, and there’s plenty of new flowers and greenery too as EA encourages players to create their own “Victorian inspired botanical gardens”.
The new stuff pack doesn’t just come with new decor for spaces, though, as there are also new apparel and hairstyles for Sims themselves. Described as “modern floral fashion”, the clothes are suitably covered in flowers and according to the trailer, there are even dark outfits for goth Sims.
Also featured in the pack are two new gameplay items. The ‘Fountain of Gluteus Maximus’ is a perfect place for couples to perch and have a cuddle and flick water at one another, or they can climb in and splash about. EA notes that mischievous Sims can even add soap to the fountain and watch as it balloons into an avalanche of bubbles. Meanwhile, the Whispering Wishing Well can grant over 50 different wishes, including wishes for happiness, wealth, children, youth, love and, as we saw in the trailer, the wish to be alive.
And finally, The Sims 4 Romantic Garden Stuff tops things off with a new Park Venue called The Lost Gardens of Healing and a new Baroque radio station that plays some chilled out tracks inspired by the 1600s. There seems to be a lot here (for a stuff pack at least) but given that The Sims 4 Movie Hangout Stuff pack underwhelmed with its lack of content, if this is EA’s way of making up for it, then few players will complain.
The Sims 4 Romantic Garden Stuff will be released on February 9 for PC and Mac.
