SimGuruSarah has shared new information about The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat. For starters, Granite Falls is a Destination World, which means Sims can only vacation there. Additionally, Sarah also confirmed that an NPC “Trickster Bear” is included with the game, and not just costumes. Here’s some tweets from today…

Kotaku: You mention that that the game pack will add “new gameplay features” into the mix, but it sounds like most of the additions specified are specific assets/bits of content—outdoor cooking and costumes. Are you adding new activities that Sims can participate in as well?
EA: Yes, we have some really great new things for Sims to do. Sims can partake in new group activities like the campfire and horseshoes, try their hand at mastering potions with the new herbalism skill, wander through the wilderness, collect all new plants, insects and use them to create herbal remedies and new cooking recipes.
Kotaku: What sort of destination/area is granite falls, exactly? is it a new public lot? will sims be able to set up houses there, or anything like that? can you build buildings there, regardless of what sims (if any) live there, or is it more wilderness focused? will you be able to mess around with any of the geographic features in build mode at all?
EA: Granite Falls is a brand new destination in The Sims 4. When you arrive you’ll be in a Campground neighborhood where your Sims can set-up camp among the trees or rent a fully furnished cabin. Your Sims will only have what they bring with them – any additional supplies they’ll need they’ll have to purchase at the Ranger Station – but players may edit the Campground lots through Manage Worlds and build whatever they like on them.
The second neighborhood in Granite Falls is Granite Falls National Park, which is a lush forest full of plants, insects, and scenic vistas to discover and explore. There are rumors of a mysterious hermit who lives high up in the mountains, but no one knows quite where…
EA has just sent SimsVIP a brand new image for The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat, which will be available this January for $19.99. Click here for more information about The Sims 4 Game Packs.
We are sure it will be worth the wait, with a new destination, new objects, activities and a whole new career path. No matter how you play the game, this Game Pack will have something exciting for you!
I have been working with members of The Sims 4 team on something fun. I am excited to share it with you all, as I know it’s going to allow you to tell even more unique and wonderful stories with your Sims.
Two words. Game Pack. What is a Game Pack you ask? Game Packs are unique to The Sims 4. Our first Game Pack – The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat – will be coming out in January 2015, but before we talk about that, let’s talk about what a Game Pack is.
About nine years ago, during The Sims 2 days, we introduced Stuff Packs to The Sims franchise to change up the way you could customize your Sim stories. Stuff Packs were focused on a specific theme and included clothing, hairstyles, furniture and décor.
For The Sims 4, we wanted to continue that tradition while giving you even MORE opportunities to craft the stories you want, since a Game Pack provides new gameplay features, new objects and new clothing based around one central theme. Being able to expand your gameplay through a Game Pack allows us to give you some of the things you’ve been asking for and it’s something we are really excited about.
So, what can you expect from the first Game Pack in early 2015? Well, you’re going to take your Sims to Granite Falls to visit and explore an all-new destination. The woods are packed with gameplay possibilities. Campfire songs, weenie roasts and bear costumes, oh my!
The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat Game Pack will be available in January 2015 for $19.99. More information will be available in January.

When you find that you can’t place something where you would like or you have an idea to create something truly unique, you might want to break out the most awesome cheat in a builder’s toolbox: MOO. MOO stands for Move Objects On and if you are not familiar with it, it is worth trying. MOO allows you to completely disregard all of the game’s rules of object placement and place objects wherever you want.
