You will soon be able to unleash your inner Harry Potter in The Sims 4 as EA have announced The Sims 4: Realm of Magic, coming to PC and Mac on September 10th and consoles on October 15th. PC and Mac users will need to already own the game and have installed all updates to play, it looks like the console version may come as a stand alone product as well as DLC.
Once you enter the new magical world you will need to get yourself an ethereal familiar to help your Sim become the Spellcaster. This could be a dragon, a fairy, or a number of other creatures that you can match to your Sims personality.
Here’s the lowdown from EA:
Welcome to Glimmerbrook
It’s a quiet town. Family homes. Places to hang out. A dense wooded area with a mysterious pathway. Wait, what is back there, Simmer? Where could this not-so-secret secret trail possibly lead? Well, if your Sim has any bit of adventure in their personality, they’ll want to know. And what they’ll discover is a world unlike any other in The Sims 4. First, a quick warning: Once your Sim goes through that portal door, they won’t be able to un-see this enchanted world. And they certainly won’t want to leave without learning a few spells!
Speaking of spells, who better to learn magic from than the best? Once through the portal, Sims can meet spellcasters who just might teach them a thing or two. Plus, Sims can get experimental with a giant cauldron, collect elements to make interesting potions, and even test their skills against other aspiring spellcasters. This is gonna be good. Wicked good!
Wardrobe for Wizardry
Creating spells is great and all, but don’t forget about dressing the part. To get your Sim in the magic-making spirit, they can don celestial dresses, accessories, and more to blend in with other spellcasters or stand out among the crowd. What will your Sim be wearing when they master the recipe for love potion or when they finish that challenging quest? The choice is yours
