The Sims 4 Expansion Packs

List of Features for DLC: Expansion, Game & Stuff Packs

The Sims 4 Expansion Packs in EA Origin

The Sims 4 offers a solid base game with plenty to do, but we all know the best gameplay is ahead when the number of Expansion and other DLC increase the amount of features, and seeing those come together to give us all more to do in the game. Currently, The Sims 4 is on track to compete with The Sims 3's Expansions and Stuff Packs in price and value. We have two categories of addons for TS4 that add actual gameplay: full-blown Expansions and smaller, cheaper Game Packs.

    How to Install The Sims 4 Expansion Packs
    How to Install Expansions and Game Packs: Click the 'i' for more information to see the addons you've purchased. You can install them individually from there.

    Installing DLC
    EA Origin can sometimes be unintuitive. It's a good platform for downloading games, but the method for installing new GP/EP offerings is a little too... minimal, compared to the past. Each Sims 3 Expansion is listed individually, but Sims 4 DLC is listed under 'more info' (the i you see when clicking The Sims 4). Installing them is easy once you know how to access the list. You'll note that your time played is likely only counting time from when you launched the game from Origin. There's no way I've played only 18 hours.

    The Sims 4 Expansion Packs

    Expansion Packs typically provide a large amount of new gameplay content, revolving around a central theme. Expansion Packs primarily provide new game systems to add on to our existing selections. For example, Sims 4 Get to Work lets us control Sims at work, while the Sims 3 Pets gives the ability to have Cats, Dogs, and Horses. Many players expect this to eventually occur with The Sims 4 - but it's not guaranteed. Same with Weather, ala Sims 2 or 3 Seasons. In general, new types of buy mode objects, Skills and Careers are to be expected. Many will give us new Traits and Aspirations, as well as clothing and hair styles to help us customize our Sims. New neighborhoods give us new places for our Sims to reside and explore. Not all Expansions are created equal and what excites one player may be lackluster to another. Even day one, many players feel they get a lot of bang for their buck from an Expansion purchase, but many would prefer to buy the Expansion Pack when it is on sale.

    Release Date: Mar 31, 2015

    • Active Careers - Explore three active career tracks, which allow you to follow your Sim at work. There, you'll complete objectives to raise your work performance and get promoted. Each Career features new objects for the home, so you can make areas fit your Sim's personality.
      • Detective - Solve crimes. You'll take on cases, and narrow down your suspect. Once you're ready to interrogate them, you can get them to cough up a confession. It's a fun Career with a lot of unique interactions.

This will allow for hobby clubs for adults and kid clubs. What retail and active careers are to Get to Work, clubs are to Get Together. This is a major feature and sounds amazing!
    • Dance 'Clubs' - Obviously, Sims will get to visit clubs based on the screenshots already released. So both types of clubs you might imagine are in this pack.
    • DJ Skill - What would a dance club be without a DJ? Your Sim can level this skill and pump up the crowd.
    • Dance Skill - Dancing is now a skill, and Sims will get better at it naturally.

You can serenade Sims, license songs to make money, and watch your Sim progress from awful head-splitting noise to spot-on pitch and great tunes. The Expansion allows Sims to sing at least a dozen songs. Some of which are very catchy.

    The Sims 4 Game Pack DLC

    Game Packs are a new concept for Sims 4, and to a player who will own nearly everything the Sims Studio releases, GPs should be an exciting concept. Game Packs are smaller, cheaper bundles that again revolve around a central theme. Stuff Packs featured cars, clothing, hair, and miscellaneous household objects but not many new features that expanded upon how you play the game. What is different about Game Packs, is that we expect them to offer real gameplay content, something that was lacking in Sims 3's Stuff Packs, with the hair and clothing being a side attraction. We can already download hair and clothes from custom content creators, but new gameplay features are harder to come by. This may potentially lead to The Sims 4 having the most diverse gameplay options of any title in the franchise, provided Maxis continues down this route and release as many of them as they did in the past.

    The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat Game Pack Click for Guide
    Release Date: Jan 13, 2015

    • Herbalism - A new Herbalism Skill awaits you, with herbs to collect and make potions with.
    • Collect Insects - Sims venturing in Granite Falls can collect Insects, including the Will-o-the-Wisp and the Dragon Dragonfly.
    • Fish and Enjoy the Outdoors - Several new types of fish are introduced, which is expected given the content of the Game Pack. The waterfalls and areas you can venture to are absolutely gorgeous, with wildlife skittering through the forest and vistas in abundance.
    • Hermit - The big forest of Granite Falls is home to a Hermit, hidden deep in the woods. Exploring this area and finding them in their beautiful area is part of the fun.

    The Sims 4 Spa Day Game Pack Click for Guide
    Release Date: Jul 6, 2015
    Features:

    • Spas: A new type of venue, which can be placed in any town. This type of lot has yoga instructors that regularly visit. They are available with the pack or from the gallery, so there are many choices.

Both of these have a set of different massages for different moodlets, all are long-lasting and powerful for keeping Sims happy.

    REALLY? a sims 4 seasons i didn't like seasons in sims 3 why would i like it in sims 4. They should really put sims 4 pets as an expansion pack. Pets was good in number 3 but they need more than just horses, cats, dogs, cattle, poultry, rodents, reptiles and birds they should really put more pets in that your sim can interact with like i don't know maybe a ferret or a hamster they could add Guinea pig or even pigs. There are all sorts of animals they could put in maybe they could put in a zoo expansion pack where you go to the zoo and interact with the animals like tamed baby panthers and meerkats or koalas and pandas that would be a really good idea.

    I don't think that's supposed to be a hint towards seasons, I think that's more of a play on the whole "Winter is coming" thing from Game of Thrones.

    I love the Sims 3 simply because of the amount of objects that actually came with the base game (pools, spas, vehicles, etc) but as far as overall gameplay, building and graphics go I'll choose the Sims 4. I have a slow computer that lagged horribly with the Sims 3, especially in CAS but I rarely get that with the Sims 4 to the point I've actually been able to make a whole heap of Sims videos for YouTube! One thing I would really love that they took away was the colour wheel where you could customise almost anything, from the colour of a Sim's hair to the wood on a bed. The pre-made swatches - though stunning and gorgeous - are quite limited and is quite annoying when a set of furniture for example have gold handles on the drawers but the matching bbq is silver.

    Yeah, I really liked customizing my stuff's colors down to the smallest detail. Another thing i wish they added is custom hair colors. I find the unnatural hair colors... very disappointing. The Sims 4 CAS engine is promising in terms of changing the body type and the face, but clothes and hair are less great...

    I agree, open world was one of the best things about Sims 3, we just didn't realize it until we didn't have it. But EA should also just patch the game. Don't make it like Sims 3 with forty million expansion packs no one has the money to afford.

    mintteasays...
    I believe the reason for omitting the open world was to make the sims 4 run better. I would rather have a game that runs smoother than a game where it shuts down constantly. More game play than frustration.

    All I want is Sims 4 with toddlers and pets!!!!!
    Admin: I am not in-the-know or involved in development in any way but have a strong suspicion that both of those things will happen down the line. The next Expansion does seem like it might help Sims to have more reason to get out of the house (Get Together) and I'm personally excited for it. I've just added this one to the list. The game does get better.. but as always with the franchise, have to have the expansions to get all those features.

    I love the sims 4! But its boring without cars and toddlers because I play it like its real life and in real life you dont just click the store and get there automaticaly, you have to drive a car,bike, or even walk. I love the graphics so I know a car and todler would be an amazing addition to the sims. :) please try and add soon!

    What I really really reallyyyyy want out of a sims games multiplayer!!!! I wana enjoy this great game with friends!!!! And I wish this game had a wider variety of options regarding everything basically. Like more vehicals, more details I'm the jobs. And of course toddlers as others have mentioned, and even more so pets!!!! But still, multiplayer tops all of my other needs, I'd also love to have this game on my ps4 cus it lags sometimes on my mac and I doubt it will on ps4.

    I must say I really enjoyed the sims 3 ALOT, Because of the wide variety of things you could do with the base game alone. I feel that The Sims 4 Is NO DOWNGRADE, Like Carl Said, EP's Make The Series Better, Thats Why I'm Waiting for Pets, Cars, Witches and Vampires (At a totally different caliber then in the sims 3, and dont get me wrong I absolutely ENJOYED all their EPS (except generations cause I didnt get it Crying)) But, I really enjoy the sims 4 and the new emotions, new actions you can choose for your kids when their in school (pranks and stuff) makes it a lil more interesting. But, im not gonna discourage EA, I have a feeling their going to impress us WAY more than we think ^.^

    Love Sims! I have all the Sims games from the original sims up to Sims 4. One thing that really bothered me with Sims 4 though is why they changed the CAS setup from 3 as far as the color changing options and ability to change the materials to make clothing custom. You could make one outfit look different and unique for each different Sim. I like how they set things as far as grab and edit for the body and face.

    Really waiting for Pets expac. Would absolutely LOVE to see a Ranch/Farm Life based expac! I was ecstatic when they brought in horses in 3, but had a hard time making a ranch with such small lots and JUST horses. Would have loved to been able to take care of cows, chickens, pigs, goats, (llamas?), ect. Maybe I'm the only one that wanted that though.

    If you think about it, it's actually quite genius -> Exclude game content from the base game on purpose and then release it as an overprized expansion pack, or in the case of sims - a crapload of overprized mini dlcs

    .. still waiting for some other company to finally release a game of the same genre.. some healthy competition is exactly what EA needs to get back in touch with reality - unfortunately money doesnt grow on trees in the real world

    I love the direction they're taking with the Sims 4 packs. Instead of buying outrageously overpriced items from the Sims Store, you buy a new pack that includes a bunch of new items and gameplay opportunities. Stuff packs now add new gameplay elements unlike the ones from the previous generation. Plus they're only 10 bucks now! New game packs are awesome and priced the same as Sims 3 Stuff Packs! Great value for money!
