If you were to ask me what my favourite expansion pack for The Sims 3 was, I would have no hesitation in saying it was ‘Late Night’. This is because it shifted the game’s primarily open-world suburban setting to something more metropolitan. When coupled with the various locales one could visit, I frequently found myself preferring the city over other worlds offered in subsequent expansions.
While time will tell whether they manage to deliver a comparable experience to TS3: Late Night, given it offers more of a pseudo-open world experience compared to its predecessor, Electronic Arts and Maxis have unveiled their city-focused expansion pack for The Sims 4. Known as The Sims 4: City Living, this pack will give players the chance to move their Sims to the hustle and bustle of the city, albeit seemingly with the same world limits present in past expansions..
The Sims 4: City Living offers a new world known as ‘San Myshuno’. One of the big additions to this expansion is the return of apartments, where players can work their way from from a starter apartment to a swank penthouse in one of four neighbourhoods. Complementing this new world are new metropolitan-themed careers, several new locales to visit, and a range of new activities to undertake.
The Sims 4: City Living will be available on PC and Mac platforms starting November 3rd 2016. Like all other expansion packs, with the exception of any specific bundles offered, you need a copy of The Sims 4 to use this expansion.
Expect to hear more about this expansion in the coming months. Until then, you can check out The Sims 4: City Living‘s first trailer below:
