While there’s speculation that EA will finally reveal a fifth instalment of the popular god simulator at EA Play, the Sims 4 continues to get new content with another new expansion pack coming in just a matter of weeks. And here you’ll discover what features it includes as well the Eco Lifestyle expansion pack’s release date on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

The Sims 4 was recently a part of PS Plus meaning almost all Sony gamers should own the game even if they don’t currently have it downloaded.

Whether you’re playing on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, below you’ll discover the release date for the Eco Lifestyle expansion pack so you can create your own green neighbourhood.

Sims 4 new expansion: What is Eco Living?

The upcoming Eco Living pack is a new expansion for the Sims 4.

As for what this new Eco Living expansion pack includes, it allow you to turn your Sims 4 characters into beings you see on extreme cheapskates.

Per the EA website, its key features include allowing you to décor the interior of your house for free by going dumpster diving.

In addition, you’ll also be able to produce your own electricity and water through wind turbines, drew collectors, and solar panels, and you’ll also be able to grow your own food.

Being an extrovert by communicating with your neighbours rather than shunning them all away will also be crucial as the Eco Living pack will introduce a weekly voting board to decide on different Neighbourhood Action plans.

And, if you think you could just skip these meetings without a care in the world, you should know that your decisions will ultimately determine whether you live in an eco paradise or smoggy-skied wasteland.

The Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle expansion pack release date for PC is June 4th at 23:00 BST.

As for PS4 and Xbox One, the Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle expansion pack release date is June 5th.

This pretty much simultaneous launch is good news for console gamers as in the past they’ve previously had to wait a month longer than master race users for new DLC.
