The Sims 4: Jungle Adventure is a game pack for The Sims 4 released on Feb 27, 2018.[1] It is the sixth game pack for The Sims 4 overall.

Gameplay[edit]

The focus of the game pack is the new location added, Selvadorada. The location is a mixture of various South American cultures. Players can navigate through the jungle with their Sims, occasionally facing obstacles, decisions, and artifacts to be discovered. Selvadorada also includes a small village, where Sims can purchase items such as local foods or supplies for jungle exploration, which are necessary for successful adventures. Within the jungle itself, there is a temple area featuring various traps and puzzles for players to solve.[2]

In addition to the new location, the game pack adds artifacts, which can be dug up within Selvadorada. Digging for artifacts increases the new "archeology" skill, which will allow Sims to create archeological sites on their property after leveling up in the skill. The artifacts themselves can be authenticated to check for fakes and displayed at home. Occasionally, Sims will come across Relics while digging; which must be collected in parts and, when finished, cause different effects on Sims depending on their type. Relics referred to as "Balampalsoh" are blessed and will have positive effects, while Relics referred to as "Zazatotol" are cursed and will have negative effects. Cursed relics may cause the player's Sim or nearby Sims to spontaneously combust, electrocuted, or be poisoned, but there is a timer in place to allow players time to find an antidote to avoid the death of their Sims. Antidotes may cause side effects, however, such as turning Sims into skeletons (a feature from previous Sims games added once again in the game pack).[3]
