The Sims 4 will release its new expansion pack, Eco Lifestyle (sometimes referred to as Eco Living) on 5 June 2020. The pack will bring new features to the much-loved simulation franchise, including pollution that impacts all worlds and the Sims themselves.
Candle making and various other thrifty hobbies will also ship with the pack. More will be revealed during The Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle livestream set to take place later this month. A date has not yet been decided.
One of the key features listed on to the pack’s official description on Origin reads:
Three words: reduce, reuse, recycle. Tend to a vertical garden to grow produce, or go dumpster diving for supplies. Just make sure to take a bath after.
Eco Lifestyle will release on both computers and consoles on the same day and the 5 June 2020 release date will be staggered as with previous expansions. Pre-order has already opened and Simmers who have done so will be able to download the new Sims 4 expansion when the clock strikes 00:00 wherever they are.
There is a slightly sneaky way to get earlier access to expansion packs, though. We’ve written about it before here.
If you’re as excited as we are about the new pack, you can watch the seconds tick by – quite literally – with our Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle expansion release date countdown clock.
