Speculation about Sims 4’s upcoming stuff pack swirls feverishly in the Twitterverse.
It wasn’t long after the Sim Gurus dropped a haunting gif of glowing green ghosts and the date January 12th that Simmers gabbed about a possible Happy Haunts pack.
After Nifty Knitting narrowly edged out Happy Haunts as a community-voted stuff pack, many Simmers lamented the choice. Some cited the pack’s suggested content— Ghost Hunting, Seance reading, and Grim Reaper freelancing as a much needed shot of fresh gameplay for the Sims 4. Developers, then, assured disappointed Simmers that anything was possible.
On the eve of the reveal date, SimGuruNinja tweeted the name of a featured, top-hat-wearing Sim ghost.
“Claude Rene DuPlantier Guidry.”
The French name “Guidry” sounds remarkably like “Guédé” the name of a family of loa, or Haitian spirits.
The ghost in question may be a reference to Baron Samedi, the head of the Guédé household. The rich culture of American Louisiana, fused with Haitian, Spanish, and French lore, represents Baron Samedi as a tall, often Black man, who loves cigars and rum. He occupies the space between the living and the dead, often making deals with the living who find themselves in desperate situations... for a price.

After a long period of relative silence from the Sims 4 gurus, Sim Guru Graham finally dropped what seems to be a teaser about the next Sims 4 pack.
While Simmers grumbled and groaned about a recently released Mac CosmeticsxSims 4 collaboration, Sims 4 gurus dropped two tweets that heavily hint the next Sims 4 stuff pack. The tweets in question feature green, glowing ghostly entities with a Kirby-cute roundness and signature Sims-quirky grins. The little phantoms bounce around the gif, which is clearly a fragment of a larger teaser gif. Graham included the ghost emoji: 👻 as his only commentary upon the tweet.
Many Simmers have began speculating that this could hint at an upcoming supernatural stuff pack. After all, Simmers received the community-voted knitting stuff pack--Nifty Knitting-- in 2020, narrowly beating out a robust option for a ghost-hunting, grim-reaper becoming, seance-sporting stuff pack. Some Simmers then bemoaned the choice and began advocating for a happy haunts pack.
Sim Guru Salo posted a similar gif fragment, but this one featured what appears to be a date.
“12th.” Will news of newest, perhaps spookiest stuff pack drop January 12th? Simmers continued to speculate.
Simmer Little Dica was quick to patch all the guru gifs together into a complete picture:
