Sims 4 Werewolves: How To Become A Werewolf
Knowing how to become a werewolf in the new Sims 4 werewolf game pack may be difficult to find out at first. There are four ways to become a werewolf in The Sims 4, read on for a detailed look at each method.
- If you'd rather just cheat your sim into a werewolf form, see our guide on Sims 4 Werewolves cheats for everything you need to know.
Sims 4 Werewolves: Werewolf Create-A-Sim
Starting off easy, you can simply create a werewolf sim in CAS (Create-A-Sim) in the same way you can create another occult sim type. On the 'new sim' tab, click for a drop-down menu of occult options and click on the werewolf icon.
The CAS options for werewolves are surprisingly varied and follow the same colour palette that Sims 4: Cats and Dogs have. That being, you can create colour schemes and designs on the fur pelts and draw designs on them.
Whether you wish for your werewolves to have human clothes or wander around the full moon naturally, the CAS options are present.
Sims 4 Werewolves: How To Contract Werebies
Certain powerful werewolves have the 'Cursed Bite' ability, meaning they can pass on the werewolf curse onto your sim if bitten. You can ask to be bitten by a werewolf if you're friends with them. Alternatively, you can get into a fight with a werewolf who has this perk, for a chance to be bitten with the curse.
Werebies, once contracted, will take a couple of days in the game to manifest into the werewolf curse. Werebies can be fought off by choosing interactions such as 'Try to Sweat Werebies Out' on a bed or 'Try to Cleanse Self of Werebies' in a shower.
Your sim will have negative emotes while undergoing this illness and will foam at the mouth until turned or cured. The hunger meter will also be impacted, with it seemingly impossible to keep your sim satiated whilst bitten.
You may also cure Werebies by asking Celene for a cure at the bar nearby.
- Celene came upon the cure for Werebies after being bitten by the mysterious werewolf Greg. To learn more about the lore behind Greg and werewolves in the Sims 4, read our guide on The Sims 4 Werewolves lore.
Sims 4 Werewolves: Werewolf Offspring
If two werewolf sims try for a baby, there is a good chance the offspring will also carry the lycanthrope curse which will fully present itself in teenhood. Curiously, as a child the offspring will have unique interactions such as 'Practise Howling' with their parents, to prepare them for upcoming wolfhood. As well as other interactions which may clue you in on their wolfy behaviour, such as biting toys and play fighting with other children.
Offspring do not always become werewolves however, they may be born with a dormant wolf trait which can only be activated if the sim swims in the lake in Moonwood Mill, under a full moon.
Sims 4 Werewolves: Tunnels
Your sim can contract the curse from exploring underground tunnels. There is a random chance of encountering a rabid wolf during the rabbit-hole pop-ups, leaving your sim bitten or scratched. Your sim can enter the tunnels multiple times if you wish to contract the curse this way. There are three tunnels in total in Moonwood Mill, in the following locations:
- Sparring Ground Porta Potties.
- Sewers Gate.
- Bunker Entrance.
