The Sims 4: Snowy Escape provides a variety of gameplay opportunities for Simmers such as skiing, snowboarding, and rock climbing. In The Sims 4: Snowy Escape preview it’s revealed that for the first time in Sims 4 history, players will be able to live and rent in the new Japanese inspired world Mount Komorebi. Previously, Simmers could only rent property in the vacation worlds of Granite Falls from The Sims 4: Outdoor Retreat, Selvadorada from The Sims 4: Jungle Adventure, and Sulani from The Sims 4: Island Living. In the base game update that will release ahead of Snowy Escape, players will be able to have rental properties in any of The Sims 4 worlds.
