Game Packs provide new gameplay features, new objects and new clothing based around one central theme. It is possible to expand your gameplay through a Game Pack, since there are different interactions with the new objects. The amount of possible outcomes while performing an action is also doubled.
Game Packs are often confused with stuff packs, which don't include new game play options. Expansions are a bit bigger than Game Packs and include complete new features and modules being added to the base game.
Expansions and stuff packs have been there since the beginning of the Sims Series, while Game Packs are a complete new addition to the Sims 4. Game Packs are usually sold for 10 euros more than a stuff pack and 10 euros less than an expansion.
When the first Game Pack was announced, Grant Rodiek explained exactly what these meant:
“Two words. Game Pack. What is a Game Pack you ask? Game Packs are unique to The Sims 4. Our first Game Pack - The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat - will be coming out in January 2015, but before we talk about that, let’s talk about what a Game Pack is.
“About nine years ago, during The Sims 2 days, we introduced Stuff Packs to The Sims franchise to change up the way you could customize your Sim stories. Stuff Packs were focused on a specific theme and included clothing, hairstyles, furniture and décor.”
