We’re excited to announce our first expansion pack, The Sims 4 Get to Work! With three brand new active careers, each complete with a new fully playable career venue, there are plenty of ways for you to fulfil your Sims ambitions. But that’s not all. You can even create your Sims’ own retail business, taking advantage of your Sims’ skills and hobbies to earn those Simoleons. There’s a lot to discover in The Sims 4 Get to Workwhen it releases in April 2015, but in the meantime, here are seven important things you should know:
You can now pre-order The Sims 4 Get to Work Expansion Pack on Origin for £29.99, the same price as a Sims 3 expansion.
Following the announcement of The Sims 4 Get to Work, the first expansion pack, EA have released the first official trailer!
Today EA held a conference call which we were kindly invited to, where they announced at The Sims 4’s first expansion pack will be coming in April 2015! The first expansion is called Get To Work and will bring active careers and the ability to own your own retail business! And mixes together two highly requested themes, Ambitions and Open for Business!
You’ll be able to take active control of your Sims’ careers in 3 new career options or you can be your own boss by opening and managing your own retail business.
New Career Options
The Doctor Career
Choose to save lives and for the first time ever, you can deliver babies! You get to go to work in an all-new hospital venue and use the surgery table.
Track clues and piece them together as you solve big cases! Take your Sim to work a the police station venue and use objects like the interrogation table. Get some good cop/bad cop mojo going on and try to interrogate other Sims.
Experiment with all new inventions in the science lab using the invention constructor, which we’ll find out more about in the future. This new object is sort oa mix between a 3D printer and Jarvis from Iron Man – create amazing new objects and use for good or bad!
Create your own retail business
You can create and manage your own retail businesses. It all starts in build mode where you can create any kind of business. Run a clothing boutique, art gallery and even stock shelves with books.
Customise everything from the items, hire and fire employees, set the prices and schmooze customers to sell them your products!
Your Sims can even live out one of the new careers by week and then dabble with their passion for baking and sell their creations on the side to earn some extra Simoleons!
Two New Skills
Two new skills arrive with Get to Work which tie directly in with running your own business. These are photography and baking!
Capture picture perfect photos or bake and decorate delicious cakes to stock in your own bakery. In addition, you can turn all of your hobbies into enterprises.
Coming April 2015
More information will be coming over the next few weeks and this first expansion pack will be packed with fun new things for Sims to be able to see and do!
It will launch on PC (physical disk and digital download) and Mac (digital download) simultaneously!
Can you believe it? 15 years ago, on the 4th February 2000, The Sims was released in North America and the world was never the same. Hard to believe that it’s been that long since Bob and Betty Newbie first moved into 7 Sim Lane.
The Sims, which was almost never made, exploded in the PC market and became the #1 Best Selling PC Game of all time! That caught everyone by surprise!
Since then we’ve had three sequels, several spin-offs, console ports, plenty of expansion packs and a wonderful community has formed who enjoy celebrating The Sims and sharing their creations.
Here’s to many more years of playing with life. Happy Birthday to The Sims, and a huge thank you to EA, Maxis and Will Wright!
