Updates for The Sims 4 aren’t exactly new, but the content that comes with this one is. The Halloween 2023 update brings not only a batch of fixes, but also a brand-new feature to The Sims 4: Discovery Quests.
What Are Discovery Quests?
Discovery Quests in The Sims 4 are simply tasks that earn your Sims rewards when completed. These quests are designed to show you what you can do in The Sims 4, perhaps new ways to play the game or make new discoveries. Completing these will be worth your while, as you’ll be rewarded with Simoleons, potions, and satisfaction points to use in the Reward Store.
Examples of Discovery Quests include exploring different ways of making Simoleons in The Sims 4. They will also help you learn how to manage your Sims’ Needs to keep them happy, gain new skills, how you can use your Sim’s in-game phone, completing aspirations, and exploring different worlds.
Discovery Quests will be useful for both new and old players, whether showing you the ropes of unfamiliar gameplay or giving you the chance to try something different. The settings for Discovery Quests can be found in Game Options under the Tutorials & Tips tab, if you want to toggle them on and off, or reset them.
Free Base Game Onesies
That’s not the only new thing that’s come into The Sims 4 with this update. The Sims 4 patches love to add in free new content, and for this Halloween special, it’s no different. The base game for The Sims 4 is getting a new Create-A-Sim item in the form of a onesie, which is appropriately themed for Halloween. The onesies are available for child Sims and older.
Aside from the new Discovery Quests and free base game onesies, this latest update for The Sims 4 also brings a ton of bug fixes and issues. For a full list of issues fixed, see the official patch notes.
