Ready to Relax?
The Sims 4 Spa Day Game Pack* is coming on July 14, and we’re really excited for everyone to get their hands on it! In the announcement last week, we talked about how this game pack includes the Spa as a new type of Venue, a bunch of great new objects, and even the new Wellness Skill. Today, we wanted to dig a little deeper into the experiences and gameplay that await when you download the pack.
There are three new Maxis-made Spas, as well as a new Gym. After downloading The Sims 4 Spa Day, you’ll notice four new buildings in your My Library page within The Gallery. There are three Spas, ready to be plopped in any 20×30 lot you want. Aham Ashram Yoga Studio focuses on offering top tier yoga instruction; Center of Center Massage provides highly-trained masseuses and reflexologists to work out all your kinks; and Perfect Balance Spa has everything to enhance your wellness including a sauna and meditation! There’s also a Gym that includes some of the new objects found in the game pack.
You can make your own Spa. Of course, if you’re feeling creative and want to make a Spa of your own, you’re able to do that too. Once you’re done, you can share it to The Gallery and watch as Simmers from all around the world comment on and download your relaxing establishment.
The Wellness Skill gives your Sim a ton of new stuff to do. Practicing yoga, giving massages, and meditating all improve your Sim’s Wellness Skill. The higher the Wellness Skill, the better they’ll be at striking those Yoga poses and giving great, special-purpose massages. They’ll even be able to make new recipes with special benefits!
Meditation masters earn supernatural Interactions. Ever notice that people who Meditate just seem a little… calmer? Almost, like, supernaturally calm? Sims who work up their Wellness become capable of levitation and, eventually, teleportation. Talk about Zen.
Your Sims can WooHoo (or die!) in the Sauna. Saunas are more than just a place to unwind. When two amorous Sims are alone in the room, there’s a special WooHoo only available with the Sauna. But it’s not all fun and games – your Sim might meet their end if they spend too muchtime getting a Superfluous Steaming.
There’s a new Mud Bath with several soaks to choose from. If your Sim is looking for a safer form of relaxation, the Mud Bath in The Sims 4 Spa Day can give them just that. Laying in the mud can give your Sim the Confident moodlet while the other soaks can have different results: the Rose Garden Scent will have them leaving Flirty, the Baby Soft Skin soak has them feeling Happy. Others soaks can negate negative buffs caused by being Sad or Angry.
Nearly all of the items can be used outside of the Spa. Don’t feel like sending your Sim over to a Spa? No worries – just about everything that your Sims can do in Spas, they can do at home, too. They can install a Sauna in the basement or toss a Meditation Stool in the living room. Moreover, mud baths and soaks are available in nearly every type of tub!
The Sims 4 Spa Day comes out worldwide on July 14! We can’t wait to hear how your Sims are enjoying their time relaxing in the new Spas!
