The Sims 4’s Vampire Pack Gets a Release Date

on January 10, 2017 1:53 PM

The Vampire Pack expansion has today been unveiled for the hit PC exclusive The Sims 4.

The pack will go on sale on January 24th and as its name suggests will add playable vampires to the game. The vampires have special abilities like transforming and converting other sims into vampires, and they also have special game-play mechanics:

They have their own special Vampire motives and needs, focused around gaining enough Plasma, Powers and sleep. Plasma is what Vampires drink, and it comes in a few different varieties. Your Sim can purchase Plasma Packs if they’re wanting a quick fix, or grow Plasma Fruit as a more long-term option. If you want to be a more traditional Vampire, you can also creep up on unsuspecting Sims while they sleep drain Plasma from them. Or just ask nicely, but where’s the fun in that?

The announcement also includes details about a new Forgotten Hollow world:

Forgotten Hollow is the new World coming in the The Sims 4 Vampires Game Pack. It’s completely different to previous The Sims 4 worlds, and makes a great place for a Vampire to live as night-time lasts long here. There’s one block, with five lots, all centered around a plaza area dedicated to Vlad, the founding Vampire of Forgotten Hollow.

You’ll notice that this World looks and feels totally different to the others in The Sims 4, with creeping fog and a lot of withered, old foliage. We wanted this to feel like a centuries-old neighborhood with history and secrets, so there’s also some great Build & Buy Mode objects to help you create your perfect Vampire home. There’s also a lot trait that’ll encourage Vampires to stop by your Sim’s home more often. Don’t worry, Vampires aren’t unique to Forgotten Hollow and they will show up from time to time in other Worlds, just not as often.

More information is coming soon about the update, but we’ve only two weeks to wait for a full release.
