Can The Sims 4 Grim Reaper Be Romanticized
The Sims 4 offers players the ability to perform social interactions on the Grim Reaper. Is it possible, however, to successfully make love to a Sim?
The Grim Reaper is one of the most recurring characters in The Sims franchise, and The Sims 4 Grim Reaper is no exception, leading some to wonder if it can actually be romanticized. Long duration sims players may have noticed that when he appears, their Sims have the option to talk to him, befriend him, and even flirt with him, making it seem like the romance isn’t out of questions. So can the The Sims 4 Grim Reaper to be romanced or even married? The answer is a resounding “kind of”.
Similar to his role in many other games in the series, the The Sims 4 Grim Reaper spawns from a cloud of smoke whenever a Sim dies, to finalize the death and replace the body with an urn or tombstone. Although his visits are brief, Sims have the option of talking to him while he is there. This allows players to plead for the lives of their Sims or, perhaps, attempt to befriend the Reaper before he disappears again.
Social interactions with the Grim Reaper work much the same as with any other Sim, though romantic interactions don’t tend to go far. However, to initiate this type of romance, players will likely need to find a way to deliberately kill a Sim. There are many ways to do this, although the method selected should allow others easy access to the Grim Reaper once it appears in The Sims 4. This means that players will want to try placing the sacrificed Sim outside or in the center of the house, with another Sim nearby, if they want to get the Grim Reaper’s attention.
The Sims 4 Grim Reaper Can’t Be Married Without Cheating
From there, it’s just a matter of queuing romantic interactions with the The Sims 4 Grim Reaper until the friendship or romance bar fills up. Unfortunately, as Kotaku has discovered, even filling the romance meter completely won’t present players with more serious options like getting married or WooHooing the Reaper. While he may flirt with Sims, or even dance and accept roses, this will result in little more than in-game achievement and perhaps a sense of accomplishment. To go beyond that, players will need to enable cheats. This is because players looking to have their Sims WooHoo with the Grim Reaper will need to remove the Reaper trait from the character.
Alternatively, a potentially easier option is to just use cheats to add it into the sims household and go straight to marry her. Some mods will even allow Sims to get pregnant with the The Sims 4 Grim Reaper, but nothing in the base game – cheat or no cheat – supports this feature at this time. Perhaps in the future the franchise will make it easier for players to pursue a romantic relationship with the Reaper, but for now, The Sims 4 players will have to resort to casual flirting and the help of cheats to achieve this.
