Get Spooked with The Sims 4 Paranormal Stuff Pack

The Sims 4 Paranormal Stuff Pack brings a spooky new lot type, furnishings, skill, job, and more.

The Sims 4 is getting a bit spookier thanks to the brand-new Sims 4 Paranormal Stuff Pack releasing January 26 for $9.99 on PC via Origin and Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Sure, it's three months after the season of scares, but we'll never say no to new skills, designs, and homes for the immensely popular simulation game.

The Paranormal Stuff Pack adds new Haunted House lots complete with uninvited spectral roommates. Players can put up with the spooky shenanigans and even summon Bonehilda the maid to help with chores, but there's another option.

Gudry the Ghost appears when Sims hold a seance and helps players deal with ghosts through offerings, cleansings, and conversations with the dead, and when all else fails, Gudry can help kick the ghosts out for good.

Sims who want to get a bit closer to the dead can give Gudry a run for their money. The Sims 4's Paranormal Stuff Pack adds the Medium skill Sims can master to obtain their Paranormal Investigator License. Once properly certificated, paranormal investigators can help other Sims deal with ghouls in their own homes, which is okay because Gudry is dead and doesn't need a job anyway.


Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
