Werewolves were a massive part of the Sims 3 Supernatural. Ever since the team brought out the Vampires Game Pack for The Sims 4, we’ve been baying at the moon periodically and waiting patiently for werewolves to join the list of occult species we can play with. Finally, it’s happened. Introducing the Werewolves Game Pack! Why combine two occult species often affiliated with one another in one pack when you can sell each separately?
The Werewolves Game Pack introduces a brand new world; Moonwood Mill. We know how it goes with new worlds in The Sims 4, though, and this one doesn’t deviate from the norm either. Expect the usual five-lot layout with tons of unroutable terrain and gameplay logistics that make absolutely no sense.
Yes – by this, I mean you should fully expect to see Judith Ward strolling confidently through the ‘hidden’ dimly-lit world of Moonwood Mill. Let’s face facts, you know this new secret location where you’re supposed to be fully immersed in the fantasy of getting to grips with your Werewolf nature is definitely on Nancy Landgraab’s morning running route.
Whereas werewolves in The Sims 3 were a life state and not much else, The Sims 4 has put a refreshing spin on this latest occult species. Picture the wolf pack from Twilight, complete with loads of denim and the occasional gingham or chequered fabric. Add in a few really edgy haircuts and piercings reminiscent of a modern gothic movement, and you have Moonwood Mill.
Even though the werewolves themselves look more feline than canine, the ability to paint their fur like you can with pets is game-changing. The new werewolf interactions are also really immersive, as long as random townies don’t saunter past while you’re raging and running wild.
In terms of CAS, the masculine frame has once again been somewhat overlooked, but the few items of clothing we did get are perfect for the rustic, edgy vibe of the new world. The same can be said for the build & buy mode items, which all scream shabby-chic.
