Electronic Arts announced a new expansion for The Sims 4. It is called Eco Lifestyle and, as the name suggests, will provide an opportunity to clean up the environment in the virtual world.
The trailer, which was mainly the announcement of the expansion, shows the fictional city of Evergreen Harbor, littered with mountains of garbage. Residents here suffer from smog, air pollution, and harmful insects. The user will have to deal with the situation or ignore it. However, in the second case, the settlement will gradually turn into one large dump.
And if you clean up the environment, then Evergreen Harbor can turn into a paradise with green paths and clean air. The main mechanics in the expansion will be the improved construction of the house. Players will be able to build wind turbines, solar panels, dew collectors, and organize their own garden on the roof of their houses. This will help to use less electricity, reduce the price of utilities, and positively affect the situation in the city.
The Eco Lifestyle expansion also offers users to recycle garbage to create all kinds of decorative elements. The game will provide an opportunity to become a construction engineer, as well as to dig into the garbage, which will allow you to find paints, ingredients, parts, and spare parts there. And, together with other residents, you will be able to make important collective decisions, organize site cleaning and sports events.
The new addition to The Sims 4 will be released on June 5, 2020, on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
