The Sims go urban once more in The Sims 4: City Living

Like Apartment Life and Late Night expansion packs before it, City Living explores The Sims' urban life. This time it promises a more immersive city life than ever.

The Sims 4 has been met with mixed reviews upon its release, but has made quite a few attempts to please fans since then with its expansion packs. So far these have mostly been in the form of “Stuff” packs, but also two expansion packs that have let Sims go to clubs and take on interesting careers. This time, much like Late Night and Nightlife before it, Sims will be returning to the urbs once more in The Sims 4: City Living.

Coming out on PC and Mac on November 1st, 2016, The Sims 4: City Living will allow players to bring their Sims back to the cities for a more immersive citylife than ever before. The new world of San Myshuno will be the center of The Sims 4: City Living. Major gameplay differences will include a bustling city atmosphere, the inconveniences of apartment life including noisy neighbors and bothersome landlords, as well as exotic new destinations that have more real world culture than previous entries.

City Living will bring in more cultural influences such as Chinese-style festivals, cultural garments, and more.

The main challenge of City Life for players will be bringing their Sims up from a small starter apartment to a luxurious penthouse style suite in one of the four new neighborhoods. There are three new metropolitan-themed careers for Sims to pursue, the only currently announced one being the Politician career tree. Sims will also have several new joints to hang out at such as Karaoke bars, street festivals, basketball courts, and more.

The Sims 4: City Living will be available on November 1st, 2016. If you’d like to pre-order it you can find it at the official Sims website. It will require the base game in order to play, so remember to purchase that first if you intend on pre-ordering City Living. If you’d like to learn more about the game, you can find more information by following @TheSims on Twitter.
