Avid Sims players of the world — this one is for you. In bombshell news (as in, even better than when the OG Sims 2 blessed our lives), Electronic Arts Inc. and Maxis have announced a brand new expansion pack. This baby is called The Sims 4 Eco Living and it’s locked to drop on PC, Mac, PS4 and Xbox One systems on 5 June for. But now, for the juicy stuff.
In the evolving city of Evergreen Harbor, Sims will have the choice to go green and embrace a more sustainable lifestyle where they can use alternative energy resources, grow their own food, and up-cycle materials for new furniture. In the new expansion pack, Sims can join with their community to shape the transformation of their neighbourhood into a blossoming beacon of sustainability and make a difference in the world around them.
Simmers can take it a step further and implement positive changes in their community through the new Community Voting Board, which features a variety of Neighborhood Action Plans each week such as encouraging installation of eco-friendly objects, supporting green initiatives, setting up a Community Space where everyone can craft or plant together, and even changing the way their neighbourhood looks. Sims can also pursue new careers like a Civil Designer to inspire others to give back to the environment or check out a path as a Freelance Crafter to fill orders for your candles, fizzy juices, upcycled objects, and more.
If players choose not to take action, they may see the bounds of nature retreat as junk accumulates on the property and air pollution levels rise. Alternatively, the more Sims pitch in by picking up trash, maintaining a healthy garden, and using eco-friendly build materials, the more their world will transform as muddy waters become crystal clear, buildings bloom with greenery, and a shimmering aurora borealis reveals itself in the sky above them.
Yep, she’s a biggie so pop 5 June down in the diary to get your hands on it.
And here are the best video games to start this year.
