Electronic Arts is preparing “The Sims 4” players for a scream with a new spooky expansion. The new add-on, dubbed “The Sims 4” Spooky Stuff, will bring in some ghoulish decorations, spider webs and other treats to transform players’ homes into the perfect ghoul’s dream home.

There are two new gameplay objects coming with the Spooky Stuff, namely the Pumpkin Carving Station and the Spooky Cando Bowl, the developer announced via the official The Sims website. The new objects will allow for carving jack-o-lanterns for decors and creative spooky lighted pumpkin heads.

To start off the Spooky Party, the expansion will also introduce three new recipes. These are the Zombie Cake, the Spooky Cookies and the Eyeball Cheese Plate. Topping off the activities in “The Sims 4” Spooky Stuff is the ability to ask other Sim neighbors for treats. Going trick or treating is made even better with spooky costumes. Sims can dress up as ninjas, pirates, witches, fairies and llamas, among others.

“The Sims 4” Spooky Stuff expansion will hit PCs on Sept. 29. This will come in time for the month of Halloween for all those scare-fests and scary parties to make the month even scarier in-game. Check out the trailer below to see all of the new goodies in store for “The Sims 4” Spooky Stuff.

The Halloween-themed Sims expansion comes earlier than the much-anticipated Get Together expansion pack. This socially-inclined expansion allows sims to expand their own social lives via the Club feature. Just like in real life, Sims now have the ability to expand their groups that are based on their personalities and hobbies.

What’s interesting about this is that the expansion will allow Clubs to overtake a Sim’s autonomy in the game. According to Tech Times, when they are in a Club, they will tend to act according to their Club’s rules instead of merely following their own physical needs or trait tendencies.

Technically, however, players still get to set the rules of the Clubs. To an extent, the player still holds overall autonomy over the Sims, though this is more indirect via the Club feature. “The Sims 4” Get Together expansion pack is coming sometime in November.
