The Sims 4 Snowy Escape introduces brand new traits feature

The Sims 4 Snowy Escape is the 10th Expansion Pack for The Sims 4 and from the community's reaction, it looks as though it could be the most popular yet!

EA has gone all out on this pack and the DLC even features a brand new feature for personality and relationship traits, called Lifestyles and Sentiments.

Lifestyles and Sentiments

Lifestyles and Sentiments features have been introduced to add more depth to Sims' personalities and relationships.

Lifestyles

There will be up to 16 Lifestyle that can manifest in response to a Sim's actions and habits.

LIVING ON THE EDGE: Lifestyles will be reflective of your Sim's lived expereinces

These Lifestyles will change your Sim's behaviour far more than any Create a Sim trait as they will be reflective of your Sim's lived experiences.

I guess in the nature versus nurture debate, Lifestyles definitely fall on the side of nurture!

Sentiments

Sentiments relate to the different ways in which two Sims can feel about the outcomeof a shared experience.
