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 for The Sims 4 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.

      The Sims 4 Game Packs

      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.

      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

      • 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. Sims skilled in Wellness can give massages, a masseuse can be called to come over, and you can of course pay for one at the Spa.
      • Meditation: As your Sim gains skill in wellness, they can become better at meditation, allowing them to instantly teleport anywhere in the neighborhood, freeze needs, and relieve stress.

      Yes, you should be able to install both Get Together and Get to Work. They should both be available for download once you log into Origin under the My Games tab. Mouse over Sims 4 and click the little [u] i [/u] (More Details). This will show what's available to purchase and/or download.

      All expansion, game and stuff packs are created to be installed together and work together.
      So at the moment, I only have the base game but wanna get some expansion packs. If I could only pick 2, which ones would you guys reccomend?? I'm awful at making decisions lol.
      Depending on what you're wanting, some of the game is on sale via Origin at the moment.

      So if all your wanting is expansions, you can get both Get to Work and Get Together for $20 each. Game Packs are $15 each - and they Outdoor Retreat and Spa Day.

      Honestly can't really tell you which to get, as that's more of a personal preference. It really depends on your gameplay style. Look around the guide at the game descriptions to help you decide. :)
      i can't find the mods on my folder "the sims 4" where can i put the downloaded content if there's no mods's folder??
      The Mods folder is a default folder inside the Sims 4 folder. If you do not have one, you could easily just create one.

      If you find the one you created not working properly. Try doing a factory reset.
      Sims 4 Factory Reset - (What & Howto) To make sure the Sims 4 folder gets created properly with all it's default folders.
      They should bring back University Life and Season expansion to Sims 4 in my opinion. These two are my favorite EP in Sims 3
      And they should make Late Night available for Sims 4 but the Actress Career should be an active career like doctor, detective, and scientist. I would like to see and guide my sims when they do acting on stage
      I wish they mad a pack that let the sims have toddlers because I loved the toddler stage in sims 3
      There isn't anything we can do to add features to the game. If you have any suggestions and/or feedback for the game, please visit the site linked below and post about it there.

      Sims 4 Suggestions/Feedback
      Does the Sims 4 lag when you download a lot of custom content like the sims 3 did? I'm scared to download anything.
      The more content you add to the game, no matter if it's game content or custom content the game will eventually lag. This will happen with any game that has extra content that can be added.

      No need to be scared though. Just keep track of what and how much content you download and install into the game.
      To be honest I haven't noticed any lag at all but my loading screens have increased in time from about 10 seconds to around 40 seconds. I have around 400 CC items and am playing on the largest lot in Windenburg. Your PC specs will be a factor in your loading times as well. Smile
      Some players have reported a delay between directing their sims to do something and the sims actually doing the action. I haven't noticed this at all.
      Hi everyone,

      Ive just been wondering if Sims 4 will have more Packs like was other Sims 3 and 2, like was Winter Pack or Pets Pack I would love have something like this in SIms 4 I think it would be very eneteresting have even Winter Pack.
      At this moment, we don't have any official word on what other content Sims 4 will have. When we get word, we'll share it with the guide and forum.
      What I loved most about Sims 3 was the open world, pets, seasons, university, and the beaches. I really hope they'll do some of those although I don't think they will do an open world just so that it runs smoother and with less issues.
      Tim Honrasays...
      Can you play this packs at the same time? I mean like a menu where we can choose which pack we'll play?
      Yes, all the Sims 4 content can be played with at the same time. As at this time there is no way to choose which content packs get installed and can be played.

      It's a if one gets installed, all of the Sims 4 content that has been purchased gets installed.
      I installed first the Get Together pack, but before that I already have a family in a household, after installing the pack, my saved household can't be loaded anymore. then I installed Get To Work, almost every stuff from the Get Together pack and world, was gone. How can I fix this one? I was a bit disappointed 'cause I thought I'll be able to enjoy the game smoothly. :(
      This definitely shouldn't be happening. I have installed expansion packs and my previous games all work perfectly with the new content. If you have any mods and CC remove them all and then try your game again.
      You could try to repair your game but to be quite honest I am not sure if this is the correct fix.
      I think you need to contact EA Customer Support.
      EA Help
      why does sims 4 not come with lots of objects on the base game like sims 3?
      Question of the century! Wink
      I think EA did this so that people would buy the expansion packs to improve their games i didn't buy the expansion packs but i have them all there are alternatives to getting the expansion packs than just buying them
      I think in sims 4 we need cars, we need to be able to see ourselves drive around in for the upper class people fancy bright red rich people cars or for the lower class people old rust buckets or trailers to live in for big family's they could add in like mini vans and vehicles like that. They should also make little mini games for work that the sims do that we aren't able to see for example if your assistant dishwasher or head dishwasher you have a little mini game where you see how many dishes you can scrub clean in 1 minute or if you are an entertainer you have some choices of phrases to say and if you pick the wrong one you get a rotten tomato thrown at you and if you say the right thing you earn an extra simoleon. For the secret agents there could be a mini game where you have to try and get past lasers without touching them and tripping the alarms I have endless ideas on what EA can do to improve there sims 4 + games. I think that EA should listen to people's ideas and use the really good ones in their sims games. If anyone has any questions about ideas i have please ask and i will tell you because my mind is full of fresh new ideas to improve sims
      Hi Emily, not sure if you know but there is an 'Ideas Thread' on the official The Sims USA Forums You may want to post your ideas there as I know the gurus often read through the various threads on that forum. Smile

      I really wish Maxis put toddlers in the game, it's really unrealistic skipping straight to a child form.Unsure
      love the sims 4Smile
      I think Sims 4 really needs pets and toddlers!! I think we are all really missing out without these!!!
      Alex Smithsays...
      Recently got city living expansion pack and its awesome. Now all I need is pets!
      I recall being able to purchase expansion and stuff paks via your site, but don't see a link anywhere to do so??
      The answer to that question is here. Sadly.

      When installing multiple expansion packs, which is the last disk/expansion you will be required to use to run the game? Is it the latest, or is there a specific one that dominates?

      Is this the same with the "stuff" packs?
      The base game is the one that will show in your Origin Library so you just click on that to start playing The Sims 4. It doesn't matter the order in which you have downloaded them etc. All the DLC runs through the base game.
      this may seem like a dumb question but... do i have to pay extra for each expansions if i play on pc? so far i've only played on console and there it is that each expansion is its own base game unlike on the pc where an expansion gets added to the base game... thats why im asking this....
      No such thing as a dumb question. Smile Yep all the packs are sold separately for PC and Mac. The prices vary depending on what country you live in but Stuff Packs are the cheapest, next Game Packs and then Expansion Packs being the most expensive. You will be able to see your countries prices by looking on Origin.
      Sam Gibsonsays...
      I'd really like to see Pets again (which we deffo will because they found it in the coding for the game... woop woop)

      I also think generations, seasons, cars and better holidays should be incorporated.
      China's Originsays...
      Thank you so much for the SIMS 4. When you make another extention pack think about this:
      I want the sims 4 to be able to go swimming in the lake or Ocean and use the beach lay out, have parties, or to play ball or sail in a boat.
      How about sims having a sunk in hot tub? You can do so much with that.
      I do love the grill. The steaks look great!
      The SIMS 3 had many Asian things as far as decorations and foods. Please give us more Asian clothes for the men and women. (things) Every time that I try to download them. They never show up.
      Please bring back the fry machine. The Sims in my game were up all night using it. The DJ booth is the BOMB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      I do love the popcorn machine. Please change the ice cream machine to make the ice cream and leave it on the counter instead of you trying to find it in the inventory, (that's dumb). I hope that someone is reading this. Oh yes, and one more thing. Please allow their hair to move in the wind and when they walk and talk when you give us the seasons pack. It would make them look more alive.
      Hello. I read someplace yesterday on this site there is a way to 'clean out a casche' type cheat. is there one for sims 3? on another note, your info posted is extremely helpful.
      Not a cheat but simply deleting the localtumbcache.package file from your TheSims4 folder.
      This just cleans out the cache in The Sims 4 and helps to keep the game glitch free. Not sure about TS3 you can try asking here on the Sims 3 Forum tech help page
      Link to Guide On Clearing the Sims 4 Cache

      I want to know if there will be a bundle release of Kids Room, Backyard and Vintage Glamour Stuff and when it would be released in Australia. Also, will the Vampire pack come as part of a bundle two!!!
