With today’s Sims 4 Game Patch comes a new teaser for the upcoming “Day of the Dead” Challenge.  As the patch notes stated, October 1st marks the end of a quarter, so it is very likely that we will see a new challenge starting next week! If that wasn’t enough to intrigue you, we also found the following image and strings in the game files:

  • Jasmine Holiday has placed a “Sugar Skull Display Case” in your household’s inventory to help you get started on the Day of the Dead Challenge.\n\nIf you prefer a different color, you can also purchase the case from the Storage section of Build Mode’s object catalog.
  • Spoke with Jasmine Holiday and received the Sugar Skull Display Case.
  • {0.SimFirstName} has already been gifted a sugar skull from {1.SimFirstName} recently.

  • The Day of the Dead Challenge has arrived for a limited time! Other Sims are already out and about celebrating the occasion. Look around the neighborhood for Sims in vibrantly themed regalia and ask them for a sugar skull.\n\nCompleting the sugar skull collection allows your own Sims to join in the festivities! Simply place the nine unique sugar skulls inside a “Sugar Skull Display Case” to unlock the “Honor the Dead” interaction. This interaction rewards your household with a tenth golden skull and enhanced interactions with the Grim Reaper.
  • Ask About Day of the Dead Challenge
  • When each spot in this case contains a unique sugar skull, the ability to “Honor the Dead” will unlock. This interaction causes colorful smoke to spill forth, and your Sim will commune with their inner Catrina to allow for enhanced interactions with the Grim Reaper.\n\nSugar skulls are received as gifts from other Sims who are celebrating the Day of the Dead. They can only be acquired during the Day of the Dead Challenge.
