The Sims 4 Get Together Expansion Pack is Coming November 2015

 by Grant Rodiek


Live it up in Windenburg!

Your Sims’ wanderlust is at a fever pitch. They want to go somewhere totally different – a place where they can make new friends, see new sights, and have new experiences. They want to bust a move at a secret dance party at the Ancient Ruins. They want to enjoy a delicious espresso in a swanky Café. They want to live it up like they never could before. They want something... new. And soon, they’ll get just that.

We’re excited to announce that The Sims 4 Get Together Expansion Pack* releases worldwide this November! Here’s the first trailer, giving just a taste of what it has to offer.

The Sims 4 Get Together introduces Windenburg, a European-inspired World with a mix of vibrant modern architecture, classic buildings and styles. From the charming countryside, to the bustling town square and luxurious island, Windenburg is filled with new things for your Sims to see and do.

But you’re not going to be exploring these new sights alone. As the name suggests, Get Together is all about your Sim having fun with their friends, whether they’re leading their own exclusive Clubs or exploring Windenburg.



Your Sims will be able to join different Clubs, each with their own interests, personalities, and styles. They have defined behaviours that dictate how they tend to act, including how they treat other Sims, and what they do or don't like to do. There will be a variety of Clubs waiting for your Sims when you first load up the expansion pack, but you’re also able to create and customize your own. You can set their requirements, decide what behaviours they have, choose their preferred hang outs, and even give them distinct rewards.

Hanging out with groups of friends makes Get Together feel truly unique. Your Sim’s in-game friends will act a lot like your real ones – whether you’re going for a dip in the Natural Pools along the bluffs or just lounging around in the pub, groups will engage in new, exciting ways. Your Sim can take on their friends in a game of foosball, or try on outfits together with the all-new Walk-in Closet. They’ll hang out and share experiences together in fun, new ways.

Your Sims will also be able to level up Dancing and DJing skills, both of which should make for even more energetic gatherings. Pump up the crowd by creating the perfect mix on the DJ booth, or start busting out some new dance moves in an Underground Disco



We can’t wait to start going into more details on what makes this expansion pack special. Expect to hear more in early October, and get ready to explore Windenburg this holiday season when The Sims 4 Get Together Expansion Pack releases!

Hopefully there'll be more new features than what they've shown so far. It looks fun, but disappointing - it doesn't seem to be adding much to the game. My Sims can already socialize and party; I was hoping for something unique with the newest EP. Will be looking forward for coming announcements about it though!

Quite tied with other things, but got the link updated so that preorders will benefit the site and invited guide guests to come to this thread and check out the features Bri listed.

I suppose I'll need to investigate this thoroughly and make a summary page this week. I am going to *try* to ask some questions of the gurus this time around, since there's plenty of time to prepare them what with a 3-month warning.  8)

From what I've seen so far, I'm not that impressed. I honestly think it's just a Late Night 2.0. It looks like it only adds a few new features that are really nothing new. We had foosball in The Sims 3 Base Game. A lot of the items from what I saw in the trailer were already in The Sims 3, DJ booths, foosball, bonfires, clubs, etc. it looks like they're just recycling features from TS3 from what I've seen.

But hey, the walk-in closets look really cool. And I hope they expand more on clubs. And finally, lake swimming! I also like the new clothes and hair in the trailer, I'm pretty sure I'd use all of it on my Sims. I also like the new town.

I hope they reveal more stuff, because I don't really like what I'm seeing so far.

I think it looks really fun. I'm particularly excited about the dancing. It seems like a lot of features that don't tie together as neatly as, say, Get to Work, but I imagine they will seem more cohesive once the pack comes out. I'm also so excited to have a new town!

I got an email with a video and watched it. Looks like those Sims are having a lot more fun than mine have day to day. Marketing. It's not clear though... Is this a vacation destination or a world you can live in? It does seem alot like Late Night from Sims 3 and that added alot to the game. But anyway, if it adds skills, activities and some new types of build/buy stuff then it will be worth the price. Looking forward to it.

This looks intriguing. The one thing I don't like is that it includes some of the "fun" stuff from University, which might mean that we won't get a University EP with TS4. And I do want to see more stuff for families. I'll definitely get it, but I do have some questions.

Will our sims be able to live in Windenburg or is it another destination world like Granite Falls?
Will there be new harvestables (coffee beans for the café, for example)?
Will we get a new life state (I'm thinking vampire or witch would go with this)?
Are dancing and DJing full 10 point skills or like photography?
Will we get any new traits or aspirations?
Is the private island a secret lot?
Will teens be able to join the clubs?

@Carl , @MarianT , I think asking the guru's is probably the way to go.  They've already added some new information stating that children and teens can also make their own 'club' up and decide who is in it and what activities the club will do. Also that they are still actually building this but hope to show more of the world in the 'next few weeks.'
It's early days so I'm reserving judgement until there is more information out there.  :)

I'm glad children and teens will be able to have clubs, too. That definitely makes it more attractive.

It just feels like a repeat of the Sims 3 which itself repeated stuff from the Sims and Sims 2. I am not overly excited to be honest. Surely they could come up with something different not just more parties.

Yeah, that's my main problem with this EP.

However, I am excited for Kid's clubs! I hope we get new playground equipment!

Hmmm... this EP seems a bit underwhelming to me. Hopefully, there's more to it than what was revealed in this trailer. So far, the only thing that I'm excited about is the new world. Personally, I wish that Maxis would focus less on partying and more on family/legacy gameplay. To be more specific, bring back toddlers.

You can read it here from the beginning.

I feel like I am letting the side down I only have the base game and get to work. Maybe the 12 step program made me realise that I don't need 37 different hair dos.

That made me giggle playalot.  I would be happy with just 1 way to stop my sim wandering off in the middle of a task to have a conversation with a table.

I have to say that I am underwhelmed.  When I look at the key features I can't help but think that there are only three things in this EP.  A new neighborhood, an island and a closet.  I have heard that the EP is still being tweaked so maybe over the next few months they can change my mind.  I don't see a lot of replay value so far.

New Expansion coming out: Get Together
« Reply #20 on: August 06, 2015, 10:10:26 AM »
I don't know if this is the best place to post an expansion pack update announcement thread but I just got a link from one of my podcasts(which isn't Sims related) that directed me to a video on EA's newest expansion pack, called Get Together. It's supposedly a pack with a new neighborhood called Windenburg which has ruins, a beach and a hedge maze and you can set up outings or dates there - the entire pack is based on outings and parties and there are two new skills - Dancing and DJing. They even brought back the DJ Booth!

Here is the link to the official site for product details: http://www.thesims.com/store/expansion-packs/get-together

If this is the wrong place, then feel free to move this post. Sorry.  :(
I play The Sims 4 for fun, so I don't care if I never end up being interviewed for the Dynasty Hall of Fame; people who play for keeps burn out too easily and don't enjoy playing the games, so I am going to not sweat the details.

Hopefully we get a lot of substance in this one, although from the trailer I'm (hopefully) seeing a new Dance skill? Would be awesome that our sims absolutely suck at dancing at first and get better as they practice, I mean it only makes sense that they would do that.

I think they started too well with Get to Work.  There was so much to offer for that EP, so with what they've put up so far, this seems to be underwhelming.  While the content looks cool (the island, a new world, and the closet do sound fun), I hope they do add a bit more to it as time goes on.

I think the Sims 4 Get Together looks really good and I am going to buy it for sure, but I personally think that there are better things that they could create at this point in time.

@marquisdiamonds yep dance skill is confirmed, as is djing skill. New traits and an aspiration is also confirmed. Don't know if they relate to dancing or djing though.
