The Sims 4 to Release ‘ECO LIFESTYLE’ Expansion Pack on June 5th

Were you waiting on a new Expansion Pack cause you’ve depleted all the fun Sims 4 had to offer during this quarantine? Well the Sims team has you covered. This expansion pack offers a new Eco Friendly challenge which isn’t a new theme for the Sims. But it does give you a new environment in which to do it. It’s not the beach setting that needed saving in the Island Living expansion. Instead this time you are in the heart of a city.

Welcome to Evergreen Harbor where the skies are smoggy and the streets are visibly filthy. It is up to you to clean things up with fellow “makers” and “activists” or not. After all, it is the Sims and you can do whatever it is your heart desires.

Build/Buy is going green! New to the Sims (not including 3rd party mods), you can cut the price of your bills with wind turbines, solar panels, and even… dew collectors(?). Also included is new furniture items or you can upcycle old items.

Maker is the new career option where you can stalk out collectibles and materials for your next project. Go where no Sim has gone before and dumpster dive for resources such as dyes, bits and pieces, and ingredients. If Maker doesn’t suit you try the Freelance Crafter career making candles, fizzy juices, and even upcycled objects. You can then mail these out to those who placed the order. It also sounds limke there is a new building you can place called a community maker space that you can vote to have made.

This expansion pack has other ways to encourage world immersion and roleplay. They are adding a weekly Neighborhood Action Plan. Here you can vote to transforming the shared lot, promote the performing arts, suggest a weekly workout, demand an upcycling initiative, or any of the other options on the board. This ability also comes with silly consequences if voting doesnt quite go the way you wanted.

What are your thoughts on this new Expansion Pack? Check out the trailer in the tweet above!
