It’s easy to underestimate just how much impact something like seasons can have on the lifestyle of your Sims. If you haven’t played any of the Seasons expansion packs from previous games, you’re really missing out and you might even have a skewed perception of what this kind of expansion would look like. This is more than just a change in temperature and adding time for the leaves to turn colors every now and then. The Seasons expansion in Sims 3 introduced unique seasonal festivals along with five different types of weather. Your Sims could now experience lightning storms, snow, hail, and even foggy mornings in addition to their usual bright and sunny days.
The varying festivals and holidays, however, were arguably the best features of this expansion in the past. Seasons in Sims 3 featured four holidays — Leisure Day, Snowflake Day, Spooky Day, and Love Day. Along with these holidays, different festival lots would appear depending on the time of the year and certain lots would even transform over time depending on the current season. It would be great to see The Sims 4 bring Seasons back around with even more holidays and festivals to celebrate.
