The Sims 4: StrangerVille is another expansion to the fourth installment of the popular life simulator. The extension allows you to visit the titular, mysterious town of StrangerVille, referring to Strangetown, which appeared in the second part of the cycle. Like all previous DLCs, this add-on was developed by EA Maxis studio and released by Electronic Arts.
The Sims 4: StrangerVille takes players to the town of StrangerVille, full of strange inhabitants who seem to be members of some sort of sect or something even more dangerous. Sims communicate with each other using very characteristic signs and often mention "Mother".
The DLC is inspired by Jack Finney's book The Body Snatchers.
Add-on The Sims 4: StrangerVille gives you the opportunity to visit a new location in a desert area. The area is full of strange, disturbing residents and dangerous plants. We can also undertake several new tasks and activities - the most important is the attempt to solve the riddle of StrangerVille city, its hidden laboratory and unmarked cars that appear in different places.
During the game we find a lot of new objects - such as dictaphones with mysterious records, as well as scanners, which we can use to detect things that are not visible at first glance. In addition, sims can be trained in the army and dress up in a number of new outfits, such as a military uniform (in several types), a protective suit against dangerous substances, a government agent's suit or.... the clothes of a conspiracy theory enthusiast.
In The Sims 4: StrangerVille we can only play alone, just like in the basic version of the game.
In terms of graphics, The Sims 4: StrangerVille is no different from the basic version of the game. However, very unusual projects of the new location and its inhabitants deserve attention - the sims move in uncomfortable positions and look as if they are under the influence of hypnosis or intoxicants. The whole is maintained in a rather disturbing style. It is worth noting that the extension requires the basic version of The Sims 4 to work.
