There are a total of 18 worlds in the Sims 4, each of which has neighborhoods and additional areas. Sims can freely explore the terrain, interact with Sims, and visit stores in their neighborhood, which has helped make the Sims a more interactive experience for players. In this post, we’re going to explore each world and what you can do with free roam.
Although there are 18 worlds in the Sims 4, some may not be accessible if you don’t have all the expansion packs. For example, Forgotten Hollow is only available with the Vampires DLC, so your Sims can’t travel to this location without buying that pack.
Let’s take an in-depth look at each location in the game that your Sims can visit.

Hidden Lot Location: Right beside the two fishing spot locations is Hermit’s House, a secret lot you can access by going down a rabbit hole. But, it’s technically not coded as a world inside Granite Falls.
The Hermit House, also known as the Deep Woods house, is a secret lot and sub-world that rabbit-holes you from Granite Falls. Sims can only access this location through a shrub hole. When the Sim enters the area, they need to go through an adventure before reaching the house.
An unsuccessful return from an adventure will give your Sim a tense moodlet. The most reliable route is the step forward, get through the web and ignore the object, or you could sally forth. It’s a bit random, which makes the Hermit House difficult to navigate.

Frequently Asked Questions
Answer: Determining what the best world is can be difficult because it’s primarily based on individual preferences. However, San Myshuno is the best Sims 4 world, in my opinion. It’s the first city where you can purchase or rent your first apartment, and the cityscape vibe looks incredible on the backdrop of a full moon. I definitely recommend moving your Sims here.
Answer: There are 18 worlds in The Sims 4. The expansion packs and patches that have worlds are Outdoor Retreat, Get to Work, Get Together, City Living, Vampires, Cats & Dogs, Jungle Adventure, Get Famous, Stranger Ville, Island Living, Realm of Magic, Discover University, Eco Lifestyle, Journey to Batuu and, finally, Snowy Escape.
Answer: As of writing this, there are five hidden worlds in Sims 4: Sylvan Glade, Forgotten Grotto, The Deep Woods (or Hermit’s Hut), Planet SIxan, and Cave of Sulani. All hidden locations have their own criteria for unlocking, and some have more than one. For example, to access the Forbidden Grotto, you can break open a door or sneak in from the mines.
Answer: Managed Worlds is a game mode that lets players edit and customize families within the world. Although you can’t customize the world apart from the lots, you can customize the townie population by pausing or in live mode. To get to Managed World, press the F5 key on the keyboard. You’ll know you’ve done it right when you see the gallery and notification buttons.
Maxis has added a significant amount of worlds to the base game since its initial release in 2014. With over 18 worlds to choose from, it can get a little overwhelming, especially when you just want to build a house and live your life. However, if you’re a completionist, having all the information available for you should feel refreshing. Plus, you save time this way.
A word of advice: You don’t need the expansion packs to enjoy the Sims 4, but you receive so many features that it’s difficult not to pass up all those worlds. With the expansion packs and the updates, you could live out your completionist dreams and finish your notebook.
Have fun visiting all of these incredible worlds in your Sims 4 world!
