How to Become a Werewolf in The Sims 4

The Sims 4 Werewolves

The latest Sims 4 game pack, Werewolves, lets your Sim turn into one of the hairy beasts. But how? Here’s how to become a werewolf in The Sims 4.

First things first: you can’t become a werewolf in The Sims 4 unless you have the relevant expansion pack. You’ll need The Sims 4: Werewolves installed first. Once that’s active in your game, you’re ready to enter the moonlit world of Werewolves. You can either create a new sim that’s a werewolf to begin with, or you can turn an existing sim into a werewolf.

There are three ways for a sim to become a werewolf in The Sims 4, which are as follows:

  1. Create a werewolf in Create-a-Sim.
  2. Get bitten by a werewolf.
  3. Be born as a werewolf

Yep, that’s right: you can create a werewolf right from the start in Create-a-Sim, with no need to go through any kind of transition. Simply choose werewolf when making a new character, and you’re ready to go.

But if you want the thrill of getting changed into a werewolf, you’ll need to get bitten. If another Sim has the ‘Cursed Bite’ ability, you can ask them to bite you, turning you into a werewolf. But you’ll need to have a high friendship level first.

Finally, if a sim is already a werewolf, they can give birth to other werewolves. Only one parent needs to be a werewolf for the child to inherit the trait. And so yes, that means a werewolf and a humans can Woohoo long into the night. We know you were dying to know that.
