The Sims 4: Seasons is the fifth expansion pack for The Sims 4. It was announced on May 24, 2018 and released on June 22, 2018. The console version was released on November 13, 2018. It is a spiritual successor to The Sims 2: Seasons and The Sims 3: Seasons. The expansion pack reintroduces weather and seasons, along with new features such as holidays and a calendar. Various other features, such as temperatures, new careers and new skills are also included.

The Sims 4: Seasons introduces weather and seasons as its primary core mechanics. The four seasons of spring, summer, fall and winter shape the entire lives of Sims, allowing for new activities, festivities and more. All worlds also have their own unique weather patterns, varying from rain, cloudy, sunny and snowy.

Alongside weather, seasons and temperatures, holidays are another big feature of this expansion pack. They are worldwide events that repeat each year, and each come with their own set of traditions which define the way the Sims celebrate the holiday. There are multiple pre-made holidays, and players are able to create their own or edit/delete the pre-made ones. The calendar, another new feature, includes the upcoming weather forecasts, days, birthdays and the four pre-made seasonal holidays alongside the ones created by the player. Players can add custom holidays, delete or edit pre-loaded ones, or manually replicate them so that they occur on a different date.

Current Bulletins
  • I'm going to start putting traits from The Sims 4 in categories based on what packs they come from, since traits from The Sims 3 are organized like that, and then I'll edit the Sims4Traits and Sims4PetTraits templates after I'm done. - ✨AireDaleDogz✨ (talk) 10:19, January 23, 2020 (UTC)
  • The Infobox Sim template should be updated to list degrees for university students from The Sims 4: Discover University, similar to how majors are listed for The Sims 2: University and The Sims 3: University Life. - ✨AireDaleDogz✨ (talk) 17:20, December 23, 2019 (UTC)
  • Currently all of the family/household pages from StrangerVille are missing proper infobox images. So anyone with the The Sims 4: StrangerVille and S4PE, it would be nice if you would upload those images and add them to those pages. - SimDestroyer (talk) 10:36, March 20, 2019 (UTC)
  • The Sims 4: StrangerVille has now been released. A lot of the information regarding this pack is very, very low at the moment, so I ask (again) anyone who has the game pack and time to edit here in the wiki to add information regarding this brand new game pack. Get Famous got a nice amount of basic info to the wiki, so let's make the same happen for StrangerVille. - SimDestroyer (talk) 18:00, February 26, 2019 (UTC)
  • The Sims 4: Get Famous has now been released and people are starting to play it. A lot of the information regarding this pack is very low at the moment, so I ask anyone who has the expansion and time to edit here in the wiki to add information regarding this brand new expansion pack. It would be nice to not be dealing with stub articles of a brand new TS4 expansion third time in a row. - SimDestroyer (talk) 06:30, November 16, 2018 (UTC)
  • Currently The Sims Wiki is undergoing the process of updating the infobox templates. More info about this can be found on LostInRiverview's blog entry: Infobox template migration. - KailynnKat(talk/fanon) 23:41, June 12, 2018 (UTC)
  • There's a lot of teaching moments possible for The Sims 4: Parenthood, but the page for it doesn't have a lot of them listed. It would be great if anyone would add any that they knew. Isaiahhsnobg.pngIsaiahScribblenauts Plumbob.pngDisscuss - My Fanon 13:47, May 15, 2018 (UTC)
  • The recent changes patrol extension has now been enabled! If you are an administrator or content moderator, please see the help page and the policy page on this extension. After that, start patrolling Special:RecentChanges with confidence! —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 17:46, March 29, 2018 (UTC)
  • The Sims 4: Cats & Dogs was released two months ago and some of its articles are still in desperate need for expanding. While some of them have decent amount of information that could still be expanded, there are some articles such as vet clinic, pet illness and pet training that have no information at all. With the expansion pack being that old now, I think it's time to do some progress in terms of editing and expanding these articles. - SimDestroyer (talk) 15:21, January 28, 2018 (UTC)
  • {{Sim4}} and {{Simbio4}} infoboxes will now display social club membership from The Sims 4: Get Together. To use this functionality, add the "club1", "club2", and/or "club3" parameters to the infobox code on the Sim article. This functionality works both on canon Sim and fanon Sim articles. Custom club names and images are also accepted (be sure to format the custom club icon to 20px). Message me if you have any questions or run into any trouble while using this. -- LiR talk · blog · contribs 20:17, December 22, 2017 (UTC)
