The Sims 4 Werewolves Game Pack Brings Out the Beast This Month

The Sims 4 Werewolves

Ever wanted to howl at the moon and roam the moors at midnight? More than usual, that is? The Sims 4 Werewolves Game Pack has you covered.

Maxis and EA have been teasing the pack for a good month and finally, they’ve confirmed that you’ll be able to turn your sim into a werewolf, with The Sims 4 Werewolves Game Pack. Aside from just having them howl at the moon, you can craft a back story and decide whether you’re going to embrace your animal nature or mope around going “poor me”.

We don’t imagine there’ll be a huge downside to being a werewolf in The Sims 4. According to Maxis, “werewolf Sims will have unique temperaments and abilities, be affected by the phase of the moon, and experience wolf-specific life events.” You’ll have a “fury” level which, when maxed out (by fighting, a full moon etc.) will force a transformation. But, let’s face it, this isn’t The World of Darkness; you might have to clean werewolf poo out of the carpet but you’re not going to wake up wrapped in a loved one’s viscera.

The pack will also introduce Moonwood Mill, a community that’s home to two opposing werewolf packs and a hang-out called the Grimtooth Bar and Bunker. Yes, you can expect The Sims 4 Werewolves introduce some horrible, horrible puns. We’re talking an “I used to be a werewolf, but I’m alright nowwwwww” level of humour.

However, there is something off about The Sims 4’s lycanthropes. We’ve heard them compared to the CGI abominations from 2019’s CATS and we can definitely see the resemblance. They’re not remotely imposing and, if you showed us them out of context, we’d just assume they were random furries.

Maxis and EA will be delivering a deep dive into the game pack, which will take place this June 10th at 11AM PDT / 7 PM BST on The Sims Twitch and YouTube channels. The pack itself, which requires the original The Sims 4, will arrive on PC, Mac, Xbox and PlayStation this June 16th.
