The Sims 4 is the game that never stops growing, with hundreds of expansions available from the PS Store right now. Its latest add-on may be its darkest yet, however, as it’ll allow you to test out your landlord skills. That’s right, you’ll be able to give property ownership a try, as you build your own residential block and let it out to tenants.
The add-on will bring a new “scenic world nestled in a lush tropical landscape and vibrant city skyline”, and there’ll even be a nearby Night Market for you to explore. Meanwhile, you’ll be able to keep tabs on your tenants as they head downstairs to collect their mail and mill about the local neighbourhood. The developer promises that the release is going to have a strong community feel.
You’ll also be working as a landlord, so that means you’ll be responsible for “fixing utilities, dealing with unruly neighbours, and creating a community”. Presumably you’ll also have the option to inflict financial ruin on your tenants, and unfairly raise the price of the rent whenever you feel like it. The expansion’s due out on 7th December, ahead of Christmas.
One thing worth noting is that if you purchase the content prior to 18th January, you’ll unlock the Street Eats pack for free. This effectively enables you to setup a Night Market-like stall in your own back or front yard, with the addition of a grill cart, street umbrella, and fruit basket. So, how much will you be charging for the rent?
