StrangerVille:

Start your investigation and solve the mystery of a desert town that holds a deep, dark secret in The Sims™ 4 StrangerVille.* In this ominous town, Sims are acting strange for unknown reasons. Is there a conspiracy? Will this seemingly odd force possess your Sim? Uncover the story of the secret lab where Sims will encounter strange plants and interact with peculiar devices. Can you solve the mystery?

KEY FEATURES:

A Different World – Explore StrangerVille, a rural desert town shrouded in secrecy. Encounter weird weather, creepy townies, dangerous plants, odd collectibles, and more.

Unravel the Story – Immerse your Sim in unique and mysterious events. Unmarked vans appear in neighborhoods, government agents use secret listening devices, and scanners are key in detecting the unusual.

Crack the Code – Have your Sims investigate using their Military training, searching for clues to solve a mystery that lies within the secret lab.

Suit Up Your Sim – Get Sims in the mystery-solving mood by gearing them up in desert-inspired clothing and military fatigues, or prepare them for the end with conspiracy-themed clothes, secret agent attire, and a hazmat suit.

Lead up info that we know:

Developers Twitter Info:

Various Strange tweets from the devs this morning definitely hinting towards some sort of 'take over' aka mind control:

https://twitter.com/SimGuruNinja/status/1097933819666096129
https://twitter.com/SimGuruRusskii/status/1097946616395313152

Thread that hints at certain items can 'protect' a sim as well as whatever this 'affliction' is spreads: https://twitter.com/SimGuruLyndsay/status/1097934572354863104

And a reference of a 'being' called The Mother:  https://twitter.com/SimGuruRomeo/status/1097940727617605632

Very apocalyptic background items: https://twitter.com/SimGuruKate/status/1097947093711360000

Other things mentioned by the devs this morning: a crater, eating the Fruit of the Mother, and this 'being' as 'arboreal mind dreams through our fleshy eyes'. A running theme is 'our eyes are open' and 'accept her gifts and all will be well' being posted with sim in creepy mind-controlled states.

Dev tweeted screenshots:

Confirmation from SimGuruLyndsay that the sims are not zombies: https://twitter.com/SimGuruLyndsay/status/1097966278348685312

I think that was pretty obvious from all the mind control hints/tweets though ;)

My thoughts (as opposed to devs tweets/information) Maybe functional trailers?... After watching the 1st Game Player trailer I'm now more inclined to think this RV is background only. Link to trailer in first post - you can see the trailer in the first shot and then the interior of the sims tiny house is shown, rather than the RV.

We do know, however that the plane wreck is not just background art: https://twitter.com/SimGuruHouts/status/1098298881845030913

Yes, that trailer looks like something new with the panels on the side. I hope they bring back the Paranormal career. I always want new careers.
