When EA announced that the next DLC pack for The Sims 4 would be magic-focused, my inner Gryffindor squealed with joy. Occult Sims and supernaturally themed packs are some of the more interesting content released by EA, often full of game-altering and rule-breaking systems that turn The Sims 4 on its head.
Realm of Magic, which is available to purchase now, looks to do exactly that, with plenty of spells and potions for you to get into some right magical mischief. Also, what better way to target a generation raised on Harry Potter than with a game pack full of witchcraft and wizardry?
Getting stuck into Realm of Magic is easy, with the option to either create a spellcasting Sim in Create-A-Sim, or travelling to the Magic Realm and speaking with one of the three sages. After completing a simple fetch quest, your Sim is made a bona fide witch or wizard, free to unleash some magical havoc. Or, if you’re anything like me, make an enormous group serving of mac and cheese in a cauldron.
