EA updates The Sims 4 with some City Living

Ah San Myshuno, where all Sims are welcome.

The Sims goes to the big city

“In developing The Sims 4 City Living, Maxis was able to take the new expansion pack to a level of detail never before seen in a Sims expansion pack,” said Lyndsay Pearson, Sr. Producer on The Sims. “As players explore the urban-themed city of San Myshuno, they are sure to enjoy the most immersive and robust world we’ve ever created, complete with skyscrapers, dynamic events, highly-populated neighborhoods, and more. And we can’t wait to see what stories people tell as they send their Sims to the city.”

As expansion packs go, this is a big one. The game gets a while new world for players to play around in, and more. In the city of San Myshuno, gamers will find apartments to live in, and even street fairs to attend. That’s something that’s pretty new to the series. I played only the first installment of the series really, but I don’t remember hearing anything about apartments before.

And as you might expect, that’s not all. Here’s a taste of what’s in the pack:

  • Exploring the lively and densely populated City of San Myshuno, featuring four distinct neighborhoods including the new Arts Quarter, Spice Market, Fashion District and Uptown;
  • Overcoming the charm and inherent challenges that come with a first apartment, such as cockroaches, leaky pipes, and electrical problems, as Sims work their way up to a beautiful penthouse with panoramic views;
  • Getting closer with the neighbors as Sims experience a myriad of fun and awkward situations that could lead to romance, friendships, or even animosity; 
  • Embarking on three new, metropolitan careers as Sims make dramatic speeches as a Politician, exemplify culture as a Food or Art Critic, or Inspire the masses and earn followers while pursuing a career in Social Media;
  • Experiencing five lively, cultural and dynamic street festivals all over the city while admiring street performers, participating in fun competitions, collecting unique swag, and more.

Sound like fun? The Sims 4: City Living is available right now in the US via Origin. You can get it on the PC or Mac, and it’ll cost you $39.99 USD. Don’t forget too, that you’ll need the base game to play. And yes, you can get that on Origin as well. And the rest of the world? For everyone else, City Living will be available on the 3rd of this month.
