Summer comes to The Sims FreePlay

Are you ready for to go to camp? The Great Outdoors comes to the world of The Sims in this free update.


They’ve been to the carnival, explored the fantasy realm of witches and wizards, cavorted with pirates, and even ruled over a kingdom as royalty, but now The Sims are going on summer vacation.

The Great Outdoors update is now available for “The Sims FreePlay,” the popular free-to-play edition of The Sims series.

Unlock the Deer Spring Falls outdoor community by reaching level 11 to begin your adventure.

Once you’ve built the campground, you’ll be able to unlock the “Vacationer’s Guide to the Outdoors” quest, along with access to two new hobbies—Survivalist and Storyteller–and several new activities.

Watch your Sims enjoy telling stories around a roaring campfire (while roasting marshmallows, of course!) and sleeping under the stars in tents and sleeping bags.

They’ll also have fun canoeing, fishing, having picnics, taking selfies in front of the nearby waterfall, and encountering the campground’s local wildlife.

And when you get restless, go talk to Clay the camp’s ranger. He has a mystery he needs you to solve!

In case you needed something to do over the upcoming Fourth of July holiday (if you’re in the U.S.) or would just enjoy seeing your Sims have some fun in the sun, you can download “The Sims: FreePlay” for free here.
