The Sims 4 released the first trailer for the upcoming game pack Realm of Magic today.
There’s a lot to take in in this trailer!
It looks like we have a new world, or two, depending on how you look at it. In the mundane world we will have a “countryside town” but it has a magical secret:
A portal that your Sims can unlock which will take them to the Realm of Magic – which may not be called that, but as that’s the name of the pack that’s what I’m going to call it for now – and it looks impressive!
Key features of the new world include:
• Discover the Neighborhood – An unreal world awaits your Sim, and when you stumble upon the secret portal, there are mystical discoveries at every turn. Interact with familiars, cast spells on Sims around you, and concoct potions for friends and enemies.
• Learn the Craft – Study up on classic teachings, get sorcerous experts to train your Sim, and become a Spellcaster by completing a quest. Collect and cast spells to make Sims fight, conjure food, or even turn others into objects. Create drinkable potions to make Sims fall in love, remove unwanted curses, or live forever!
• Get Real Familiar – An ethereal familiar – or protector — will help your Sim become the Spellcaster they were destined to be. Summon a dragon, fairy, or the familiar that best suits your Sim’s personality as a personal guard and give it a creative name.
• Dress for Supernatural Success – Get in the spirit of sorcery with outfits that suit your Sim. Over-the-top attire is cauldron-ready, while a subdued ensemble is perfect for casting new spells. Collect wands and brooms to finish the look, then decorate rooms with enchanting objects.
So we have a new life state – Spellcaster – which will probably include a new skill, possibly more if casting spells, brewing potions, and broomstick riding are treated separately. There are also new clothing/accessory items to give your Sim a magical look. Hopefully the buy/build items shown in the trailer, like those windows and that lamp in the picture below, for example – will be available for us to use as well.
Overall this pack looks like a fun addition to the world of The Sims 4, and we look forward to seeing how it affects gameplay!
The Sims 4 – Realm of Magic will be released on 10 September for PC/Mac and 15 October for Console.
