Aspiring to Awesomeness with Get Together
At the recently held Creator’s Camp that was thrown for the launch of the all new Expansion Pack to the Sims 4, Get Together, a lot of new details about the upcoming game were released. In addition to all the cool locations in Windenburg, there are some new traits, aspirations and epic skills to be learned and mastered over the course of the game.
During my hands-on time at EA’s Get Together Creator’s Camp, I took a look at the brand new Traits, Aspirations, and Skills included with the game. Starting off in Create-a-Sim, there are two brand new Traits, One New Aspiration, and a New Reward Trait.
The two new Traits available for use straight away are the “Dance Machine” and“Insider” Traits. These traits fit well with the new Dancing Skill and Clubs System.
Dance Machine – These Sims cant wait to get down, boogie, and party all night! When at venues like Bars, Nightclubs, and Lounges, these Sims can get a burst of energy with the Party Time interaction. Dance Machines also receive a happy Moodlet when arriving ay social venues.
Insider – These Sims love being in Clubs, and tend to be happiest when surrounded by their friends.
In addition to traits is a brand new Aspiration titled “Leader of the Pack”. This Aspiration is beneficial to Sims looking to become the “top dog” and being the leader of the best club in town. Completing this aspiration gives Sims the new “Natural Leader” reward trait.
Leader of the Pack – This Sim wants to be the leader of the best Club in Town! (Reward Trait: Natural Leader) Attempting to take over a Club always succeeds, and your Sim can’t be overthrown. Your Sim will also earn Club Points while in a gathering much faster.
Natural Leader (Reward Trait) – Sims that are natural leaders will earn Club points much faster, and they will be able to overthrow other leaders with ease.
After you have customized your Sims with the new traits and aspirations, it’s time to start building their skills. The Sims 4 Get Together includes two brand new skills (DJing and Dancing) complete with rewards. Rewards are unlocked as Sims increase their skill level.
