The Sims 4: Realm of Magic is the eighth game pack for The Sims 4. It was officially announced during EA Play on June 8, 2019 and its trailer premiered on August 20, 2019. It was released on September 10, 2019 on PC/Mac and was released on October 15, 2019 for consoles. The focus of the pack is magic, and includes a new life state, spellcasters, and a new world, Glimmerbrook. Spellcasters can also acquire familiars. It is a spiritual successor to The Sims: Makin' Magic, The Sims 2: Apartment Life and The Sims 3: Supernatural.

Official description[edit | edit source]

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.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This is the first purely magic-focused pack since The Sims: Makin' Magic, as magic was a secondary theme in The Sims 2: Apartment Life and The Sims 3: Supernatural.
  • The three-week gap between the pack's announcement (August 20, 2019) and its release (September 10, 2019) is the longest wait-time for a game pack to date.
  • Realm of Magic is the final content-pack for The Sims 4 to support 32-bit (PC) and non-metal (Mac) systems. The next pack for the game (Discover University) ceases support for them.
