Electronic Arts Inc and Maxis announced The Sims™ 4 Eco Lifestyle Expansion Pack today which introduces the city of Evergreen Harbor where you have the choice to go green and embrace a more sustainable lifestyle where you can use alternative energy resources, grow your own food, and up-cycle materials for new furniture. Sims can also join together with their community to shape the transformation of their neighborhood into a blossoming beacon of sustainability and make a difference in the world around 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.
Evergreen Harbor is a unique new world where Sims have a direct influence on the state of the environment with every decision that you make. Including producing your own electricity and water with solar panels, wind turbines, and dew collectors, or growing your own food at home in a new vertical garden. You can also decorate your homes with remade furniture, dress head to toe in clothes that are sustainably made from reclaimed materials, and even work towards having a living rooftop for a splash of bright color. Those who don’t mind the smell can also go dumpster diving to scrounge up pre-used objects and ingredients to repurpose for new, creative goods for their home.
Not enough eco for you? Take it a step further and implement positive changes in your community through the new Community Voting Board, which features a variety of Neighborhood Action Plans each week such as encouraging installation of eco-friendly objects, supporting green initiatives, setting up a Community Space where everyone can craft or plant together, and even changing the way your neighborhood looks. On the career front, look forward to being a Civil Designer who inspires others to give back to the environment or check out a path as a Freelance Crafter to fill orders for your candles, fizzy juices, upcycled objects, and more.
On the other hand. If you choose not to take action, you may see 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!
As you explore all of the environmentally-conscious efforts that The Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle has to offer, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to learn more about how to maintain a sustainable lifestyle and collaborate with the community to make the most out of the resources you all have. Simmers will be surprised by what a positive effect they can have on their world once they start making the rules.
The Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle Expansion Pack is rated T for Teen by the ESRB and for the very first time, this expansion will be available for $39.99 on all platforms including PC, Mac, PS4, and Xbox One systems June 5, 2020.
