The Sims 4 developers are already preparing for the upcoming winter season and announced a new batch of content coming to their game next month. Apparently, The Sims 4 will get another big expansion called Snowy Escape which is scheduled to be released on November 13.

Here’s a trailer:

We have to be honest, that it’s an unexpected one. The Sims 4 Snowy Escape adds a new Japanese-inspired winter neighborhood called Mt. Komorebi. In there, there will be plenty of new stuff to explore and engage with but the most interesting will be winter sports. Your sims will be able to engage in skiing, snowboarding, sledding, and rock-climbing which are essential parts of Mt. Komorebi experience. However, if sports is not up your alley, there will be other stuff to do – your sims will be able to enjoy hiking, eat hot pot, or bathe in Japanese hot springs.

Naturally, in addition to the new activities, there will be plenty of new cosmetics including new clothing, furniture for your dream home, and architectural items. According to Electronic Arts, Japan will be noticeable everywhere.

The official press release reads:

“Rent one of the vacation lots or build your own home when you arrive in Mt. Komorebi! Find inspiration all around town for your next project, whatever it is. New features like shoji doors, tile roofs, and tatami mats lean into the Japanese inspiration behind the pack, and going forward, you can also start playing with customizable platforms! But that’s not all. Fill your home with both modern and traditional furniture options, and make sure to add a cozy kotatsu table for group meals like hot pot.

Outside, enjoy the harmony of this peaceful mountain environment. Add koi to your decorative fountains and start a rock garden under the shade of Japanese maple trees—whatever makes you happy!”

Sounds like an interesting addition? Be sure to keep an eye out for more updates. However, you should know that The Sims 4 Snowy Escape will still require a full game, so if you don’t have one yet – be sure to grab it from our store for less.
