I know Game Packs are more specific than Expansion Packs and allow develop better an theme. Also happen with occults, compared those from GP vs those from EP
Also have than are several themes covered by GP, no only occults, so occults comes after some other GPs. And would be a coincidence or a pattern?
Sure than will no make on e occult after other, but GP04 - GP08 - GP12
Fairies will be GP16?
As an Occult lover and fan of all things Fae, I'd find it less distressing if I was sure we were getting 2 game packs a year until Fairies comes out.
But I'd prefer this over my nightmare - that Fairies get squished into an expansion pack and get the Aliens/Mermaids treatment.
Now than you said Zombies, for sure nobody will rant if zombies comes as part of an EP or even patched at BG (or as rework of existing pack) as temporary life state
This youtuber simmererin recently speculated on zombies coming with a post apocalyptic themed expansion. I don't enjoy zombies in game but her idea sounded pretty good, I'd buy it
I definitely like the dedicated GP's. The occult are much more developed. I hope aliens and mermaids can get a refresh at some point. Another advantage of occults in GP's is that we can pick and choose if we want without having to give up a big EP theme. For example I want all occults except zombies so I would skip that GP and get the rest. Of course I that doesn't stop some simmers from getting the pack and then request the main feature to be removed or nerfed.
Zombies+ the walking dead+fallout 😱😱😱 that would be a dream pack if it were to happen.
