The Sims 4 Spa Day game pack is coming soon

The Sims 4 Spa Day

Are your Sims suffering from stress? Hardly surprising, given the seemingly murderous tendencies of so many capricious players. Luckily, the Sims will soon be able to take a load off with a relaxing spa day, in the upcoming Sims 4 game pack entitled—you guessed it—Spa Day.

The Sims 4 Spa Day will include three new spas created by Maxis, as well as a new gymnasium—all available in the game's library, which can be placed wherever you want. Sims can spend time (or make time) in the sauna, get a massage, or take a mud bath, and boost their Wellness skill by giving massages to other Sims, doing yoga, and meditating. A higher Wellness ability will unlock new yoga poses, better massage skills—steady, not like that—and a "special surprise" for high-level meditation. You'll also be able to create your own spas, so your digital peeps can relax someplace with a more personal touch.

The Sims 4 Spa Day Game Pack will be out on July 14. Pricing hasn't been announced, but the previous game pack, Outdoor Retreat, was $20, so I'd expect something in that range. Details beyond that are few, but such as they are may be found at
