The Sims 4: Vampires is another large expansion to The Sims 4, a game that originally launched in 2014 on PC. The add-on only requires the base game to run. As always, it was developed by Electronic Arts.
The Sims 4: Vampires introduces new supernatural elements into the lives of your Sims. The main feature of the add-on are, obviously, vampires. From now on, your protégés can become these dreaded, undying monsters. After transformation Sims gain special powers, such as the ability to change into a bat or a cloud of mist. They can also control other Sims’ minds and suck on their life energy. You should be careful, though, not to expose them to sunlight for too long, because it can weaken or even kill them. Interestingly, the developers made it possible for players to customize their Sims’ vampiric form. Some of the things you can adjust are the length of fangs, eye color, skin complexion, etc.
The expansion also adds a brand new location, called Forgotten Hollow. This neighborhood holds five residential parcels. Its unique stylistics is perfect for any vampire’s taste. In this place, twilight is neverending, and the gothic mood is emphasized by eerie landscapes and an old graveyard. The expansion also offers a selection of new decorations for interiors, including interactive ones, such as organs, or coffins, where vampires can rest.
