In times where we have been spending most of our time indoors, games like Sims 4 have been a wonderful escape. Living vicariously through our simulated lives has truly taken the edge off. We have our kids, pets, and even magical abilities. But now, we can GO GREEN in the new Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle Expansion.
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:
- encouraging installation of eco-friendly objects
- supporting green initiatives
- setting up a Community Space where everyone can craft or plant together
- changes to the look of the neighborhood
There are also new careers that your Sim can pursue:
- Civil Designer – to inspire others to give back to the environment
- 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.
“We’re thrilled to give players the opportunity to explore an eco-friendly way of living in The Sims and play the change they want to see. By discovering and practicing sustainable habits, like using solar panels or wind turbines to power their electricity, or upcycling materials to create new furniture, players and their Sims can play with life in all-new ways.” – George Pigula, Producer of The Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle Expansion Pack.
The expansion is set to release simultaneously to PC, Mac, PS4™, and Xbox One systems on June 5 and will be available for $39.99,
