Game Review – “The Sims 4: Jungle Adventure” Game Pack

By  | 

Selvadorada is a lush landscape of exploration. From bees to skeletons, wildlife and poison darts – there is enough to keep your sims adventuring for a lifetime!

A new Game Pack for The Sims 4 is on its way to us this week. Thanks to EA and the EA Game Changers Network, I was very lucky to receive Early Access to show you through this new pack. Hold on to your machetes because there is adventure around every corner of Selvadorada and The Sims 4 Jungle Adventure.

Welcome to Selvadorada

The jungle is a big, treacherous beauty. Full of danger and experience, it changes on every visit. It’s best to visit the Marketplace in Selvadorada before any jungle trek. This might come in handy for any danger lurking in the Belomisia Jungle.

The goal is to reach the Hidden Omiscan Temple by following the Jungle’s obscure and non-linear exploration process. Complete tasks successfully to be granted access to different and new areas of the Jungle. The more skills your sims have, the better they will become at the challenges, or be ready to get burnt, bitten or stuck with a poison dart!

Not only puzzles and riches await your sims in the Hidden Temple, there is also DANGER! Swarms of Bees, Colonies of Bats, Clusters of Spiders are lurking in the Jungle. Electricity, Fire and even SKELETONS will prevent you from coming back ALIVE! So be prepared…

The Hidden Temple of the Omiscans

Inside the Temple there are riches worthy of the best Jungle Adventurers. Those with the guts to enter will be presented with Temple Defences which involve collecting clues and solving ancient puzzles to further unlock the secrets of the always changing adventure.

Budding Archaeologists will be happy to know that dig sites are located all around Selvadorada, so you can bring your equipment with you on your Jungle trek or analyse your finds when you get home. Levelling up the new Archaeology skill means better quality relics to sell or keep, or you can even create a dig site to share with other friendly travellers or locals.

There is not only the jungle to explore but a range of cultural elements included in Selvadorada. Latin Pop songs blast at the nearby Cantina where colourful locals are happy to discuss their heritage and any Jungle Secrets. They might even teach you the Rumbasim, the salsa inspired dance they all do at the bar.

There is also a new range of food, including harvestables and new culinary delights available in the Puerto Llamente Marketplace. When your sim gets accustomed to the taste, they can make the rare delicacies at home for their family and friends while sharing their new artefacts, souvenirs and photos from their most recent trip.

Build Mode, Buy Mode and Create-a-Sim Additions

Items included in this pack are inspire by Central and Southern American culture. Earthy tones and gorgeous traditional colours, there is a range of items to decorate any Adventurer’s home or Cultural Lot. I love the details in all the statues, however I found there are not a lot of decorations for your home – UNTIL I realised this is for your sims to go out and find!

Decorations with Llamas, avocados and elements such as fire, leaves and water make any house into a tropical and mysterious cabana straight from the jungle.

Bright colours with floral details or Llamas are just some of Aztec patterns included in this pack, it really does give that “Travelling in Central America” feel. There are new hairstyles for adults, loose wear clothing for those tropical forest hikes, and of course boots too! There will be something for every member of the family to wear while in Selvadorada, or just around the urban jungle.

 

The Sims 4 Jungle Adventure Game Pack is now available from the EA Origin App.
