Start Planning Your Snowy Escape in The Sims™ 4!

Pack your bags, Simmers—the new Expansion Pack is heading to the mountain!



Hope you have ski boots and cold-weather gear—The Sims™ 4 Snowy Escape Expansion Pack* is sending a chill through the air on November 13, 2020! We’re heading to the Japanese-inspired world of Mt. Komorebi, where high-energy snow sports and relaxing slow experiences present an array of new Lifestyles to choose from. See you at the top of the mountain, Simmers!





Get Some Air


Breathe in that fresh mountain air and start working on your Sim's rock climbing, skiing, and snowboarding skills. They'll want to level up if they ever intend to explore anything bigger than the easy practice courses. Once they’ve gotten the hang of it, take the gondola up to the bigger ski runs and the climbing routes to the peak. Even wipeouts look cool up there… probably. But when Sims get really good, show off with a light-up board and the chicest snow gear.


It’s not just for adults, either. Children can ski and snowboard on the less challenging trails while parents take their toddlers sledding! It’s snow fun for everyone.



Cool Down


If your Sim crashed a few too many times and they need to recover, lean into the slower parts of life in Mt. Komorebi. Hit up the the onsen bathhouse to soak your Sim’s problems (and injuries!) away. Is there anything better than watching the steam rise into the cold night above after a long day? We didn’t think so.


Even the hiking trails just outside of town offer something new every time. Explore bamboo forests, pause to reflect at the graveyard, or visit the mountain temple with friends to get the full experience. Do remember to dress appropriately, though—depending on where you are, it sure can get cold here!




Build it Up


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!


So, what’s your snowy escape?



The Sims 4 Snowy Escape Expansion Pack arrives on November 13, 2020, at midnight in your region on Origin (for Mac and PC) and at 10 a.m. PT for Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation®4! Preorder it today to be first in line for the gondola!

I agree do you think we will be able to live there if so that would be cool no pun intended.

I have some great idea's for some New expansion packs for The Sims 4. I Wish they would would add a Fashion Expansion Pack with Designing clothes , Dresses , fashion designing and Wedding Planning Careers. Also Add more animals like horses , goats , ducks , wolfs , and Being able to actually play the animals like how you play your own Sims. Also I think The Sims 4 could also add in like a theme park , Carnivals , and Roller-coaster rides. Also making a Career out of it where you can work at the Parks as well. I think these's great idea's would make The Sims 4 even funner

You still can only own one home so you can not build a "vacation" home but a regular home.

Please only PM me when asked to do so. Questions and answers belong here so everyone can benefit from them.

Will we be able to build rental lots elsewhere?  I'd love to do that in Sulani.

Excited about a new pack for the first time since DU!


Also, there's a workaround for only being able to own one home, if you have Get To Work.  Add a cash register to a build, call it a retail store, and then buy it as a retail store.  You can visit any time, invite friends over, whatever.  It isn't necessary to ever actually open for business.

Totally disappointing, I thought it would be more like Sims three, where they had the world where you could build vacation homes plus own ur own home. Totally disappointed, I was so happy after being so disappointed with this Star Wars pack! Worst pack  ever. Oh well, I shouldn’t be surprised I guess.

@EA_Lanna  Winter wonderland! I 'm looking forward to it and I am eager to see the new possibilities and the Japanese orientation. I would love to build something like a shinto temple, according to the way of Kami. I pre ordered it right away. Can't wait for the 13th of November. 😊

@Rachelharris31 If you go to the preorder page, there's a blog post with a little more information.  And yes, you'll have the option to live there OR do a vacation rental!  One thing they haven't answered yet, is if we can build vacation rental lots elsewhere.  Something a lot of people wanted for Island Living, and I definitely would like to do that.
