About This Content

Let your Sims swim in the ocean on a hot summer day, bob for apples in the autumn leaves, test their snowboarding skill on the half pipe, or welcome spring showers with a walk in the rain and a colorful umbrella. All-new activities, like soccer, and big seasonal festivals and celebrations bring the spirit of each season to life. Your Sims can pucker up at the kissing booth at the spring festival, or see what Halloween surprises await in the haunted house. Dress for the weather with seasonal fashions from wetsuits to raincoats and snow gear. With new foods, décor and weather effects, your Sims can enjoy the bounty and beauty of the ever-changing seasons and play with life like never before!

Key Features

  • Delight your Sims with new activities for every season: Whether building an intimate igloo, carving a scary Jack o’ lantern, taking a plunge off the diving board, or setting off all-new fireworks, your Sim can always find new things to do throughout the year.
  • Join the fun with seasonal festivals: Sims can get in a snowball fight at the annual winter festival, get their faces painted at the summer festival, whoop it up at the spring dance, or bob for apples during the fall festival.
  • Experience the joy and challenge of changing weather: New weather effects and Sim reactions capture the power and beauty of nature! Sims can get a tan, be struck by lightning, or catch a cold!
  • Bring the outdoors inside: Your Sim can now learn the recipe for pumpkin pie or style their home with new furniture and décor. There are a host of new items to ring in each season. Get a tanning booth in time for summer, or ring in the holiday spirit with house lights and decorations.
  • Dress for the weather: Outfit your Sim in new styles for the season, including snow gear, wetsuits, raincoats and umbrellas, and new Halloween costumes!
  • Welcome mysterious visitors: New weather patterns aren’t the only things appearing in the sky! Befriend an alien visitor and use their UFO to abduct a neighbor, invade a community lot, or travel to the stars.

How My Game Went:

First Thoughts: I've heard that this is the best expansion pack, but dosen't it only add seasons?

1. Creates new game. Makes a bachelor dressed fabulosly in a Hotdog suit.

2.Starts in fall. Immediately walks to to town festival. Goes into haunted house and becomes a ghost.

3. Its Night-time now, so I slowly walk home.

4. Around 3 AM, sparkles in the sky greet me. Sim goes out to investigate. Sim then gets abducted.

5. An hour later, the sim comes back, with an abducted moodlet. I then try to wait it out.

6. After it is waited out, he rapidly gains weight over a period of 3 days with an "Unexpected Weight Gain" moodlet.

7. On the third day the sim has an action where he looks like he is having an anurisim and diahrrea at the same time.

8. Male hot-dog sim gives birth to alien baby. Raises alien baby untill its freezes outside during the winter. Sim ironically burns to death during the summer.

9. Takes off headset, and walks away from computer, to the window. Sees flashing lights in the sky, and promptly runs into cellar. Turned out to be a helicopter.

Warning: Title "Seasons" is extremely deciving

Not what I expected, but 11/10, Would have sim probed again.

Very fun, but had to update to install. Fun to play but you have to be careful in diffrent seasons (like don't stay in the cold or heat too long). Great game! Recommend to all sims players!

This is one of the best expansions I've ever had, the other being Generations. I had the same problem at first, where the game would not show up, but I just reloaded the game and there it was! There's not that many new clothing options except for outerwear, but that's alright! The seasonal festivals are really fun and all sorts of season-related activites are here! The game didn't turn my computer into dust like I thought it would. It handled snow quite smoothly, but rain went okay. I don't know about fog or hail because I didn't try them. Trick-or-treating doesn't always work out but that's what the vending machines from UL are for. I wish Grasshopper Pie was possible to bake. This game is amazing and brought, surprisingly, an even better experience than TS2. I would totally recommend this game, and if possible make it your first expansion pack. I have never had so much fun in my life. (P.S.: Get a huge household and a lot with a bunch of trees, so in fall you can have a rake-a-thon :) )

I'd say it's the best DLC for The Sims 3. Gives a nice nuance, and frankly, makes the game much more natural and realistic. A lot of new activities and suitable fashion for each season, and recurring holidays. So if you have to buy only one, make it this one!

This is Acutually one of the best DLC. The new added town-outlook changes in function of seansons definitely boost game passion. Festival is also great, but dont expect too much. Only soccer match, skating and eating contest added in summer, for instance. Whatever, every DLC is great excuse for making a poor base. This one is the biggest.
9/10

Best DLC for the Sims 3 that I have yet to play. Seasons introduces summer, fall, winter and spring, snowmans, seasonal fairs at the park, and even alien abductions (what does that have to do with seasons? idk....). Don't stay out in the sun or you get sunburned. Don't stay out in the cold or you freeze to death. The fun just keeps going on and on.


It is NOT, however, worth twenty bucks! Buy this when it goes on sale, don't waste a $20 on any of these expansions. They are horribly over priced.

frankly if you run a 32 bit computer the snow and rain make it hard for my computer to handle, it slows and sometimes crashes.
