The brand new world felt like a mixture of Granite Falls (Outside Retreat), Forgotten Hole (Vampires) and Evergreen Harbor (Eco Life-style).
The brand new world homes two werewolf packs and some new tons, three of which have been designed by Sims YouTuber James Turner.

The pack comes with some new eclectic grunge outfits that your Sim — werewolf or human — can put on as properly. Although, in case you maintain your Sim in werewolf type, different Sims might need a frightful response to you. There’s additionally a really cute new wolf-onesie for toddlers.
