The new world feels like a combine of Granite Falls (Outside Retreat), Overlooked Hollow (Vampires) and Evergreen Harbor (Eco Lifestyle).
The new entire world residences two werewolf packs and a few new heaps, three of which were being intended by Sims YouTuber James Turner.

Moonwood Mill is residence to two werewolf packs that your Sim can attempt to be part of: the regular Moonwood Collective and the scrappy Wildfangs.

You will never be ready to start off your own pack, but you can generate a werewolf club with the Get Collectively pack.

And, yes… you can woohoo as a werewolf.

According to the developers, teenagers and more mature werewolves can come across a Fated Mate in an additional werewolf. When two Sims are Fated Mates, the pair get elevated intimate romantic relationship loot gains, unique sentiments and their marriage simply cannot decay. In addition, if they romantically interact with a Sim that’s not their Fated Mate, they may get a tense moodlet.

The pack comes with some new eclectic grunge outfits that your Sim — werewolf or human — can put on as properly. Although, if you retain your Sim in werewolf kind, other Sims could have a frightful reaction to you. There is certainly also a incredibly cute new wolf-onesie for toddlers.
