City Living

The Sims 4: City Life is Expansion Pack 3 Theme!

UPDATE #2: Things have gotten pretty legal over this leak. Apparently, Sony DADC/Warner (EA distributors in Brazil) have requested the brazilian rating board to hide the Expansion Pack 3 listing from their website. The document down below is the proof:


According to the document above, EA has 30 days (until September 17th) to decide a new date to publish this listing or else the brazilian rating board has all the rights to publish it without their permission.

Also, it was found out that the rating was sent for approval on August 10th:



UPDATE: The listing has been removed from the site mentioned below.

O Sim BR found the listing of The Sims 4 ”Vida na Cidade” which roughly translates to ”City Life”. The site which leaked this information is the official website for video game rating in Brazil. We checked if this listing is real and it sure is still there!

The site also states that City Life was produced in 2016!


If you remember, back in August 2015 we had a survey which listed several Expansion Pack ideas. One of them was Metropolis that had the following description:


Move into a bustling, modern city! Live in new apartments and penthouses eat food at carts and shop at street markets and immerse your sims in the different cultures of the city by exploring the many diverse neighbourhoods.

It could be very possible that The Sims 4 Backyard Stuff was hinting at the upcoming Expansion Pack with the following CAS assets:

  • Bring back toddlers please! Along with seasons and pets! I miss the holidays in it and the weather! I also miss my sims having their pets.

  • Heck yes! I’m pumped! I’d love to see some of the Sims Urbz content come back! As for toddlers, omg, get over it already! Toddlers are pita.

  • I would hope that developing this, they would minimize loading screens overall. For me, removal of loading screens would make the game 95% better. There may have been a good reason for adding them back into the games (technical, memory, graphical, etc.) but thanks to the open world of The Sims 3, I’m spoiled. We will have to see what happens with this expansion, but while I have the base game of The Sims 4, I’ll continue playing TS3 more.

  • This would be kind of cool but they need to give us something like an island paradise or maybe “Get Famous”. I know nando created “Paradise get away” which I have but it would be awesome to have islands back. Also being able to be a celebrity like in late nite.

    • Definitely agree with you!! They should also I know I have mentioned this before! but, they should seriously have sims Modeling!!! and Catwalk Runnaway Platform!!!

  • Actually, if they make a Seasons expansion, I might play the thing. I don’t think I would play city life – they will probably add more night clubs and bars, which I never play. As for apartments…no thanks. I think I’ll stick with Sims 3. At least I can create my own worlds to play. AND I don’t have to put up with “pee like a champion” and “take an angry poop”. That’s NOT funny…that’s just gross!

  • I’m not sure I understand this whole legal thing going on. So the Brazil rating board posted the expansion, sony dadc/warner wants them to hide the listing. So now EA has to come up with a new date to list it (does that mean officially announce it?) by September 17 or else it get’s listed without EA’s consent? Is that right? Or am I totally wrong?

    • Yup, EA and Sony/Warner work together in Brazil and you can basically say that EA wants to hide the listing. However, because the listing was already posted and they probably had to sign some papers, EA has to decide on a new date to publish their rating listing or else the official brazilian distributor has the full rights to publish the listing without their consent.

  • I can’t wait for the apartments and food carts. Also, can’t wait to see what the neighborhoods will look like. I’m really excited about this one. One of the worlds in sims 4 now. If you look into the distance, it looks like a city with tall buildings. I thought that was a hint before the backyard stuff came out. Then when the shirts with the city stuff came out on it. I thought for sure we would get it. Hope the rumors really are true and they don’t scrap it or push it into 2017. *fingers crossed*

  • So no seasons, no pets, no toddlers, no open neighbourhoods, swimming in the sea? Gah – I give up on this game.. EA have lost the plot… I’m off to uninstal it!

  • Oooh, I hope there’s a hint of Urbz’ neighborhood, like the Diamond Heights, the Neons, the Skater boys, the Grunge, the Goth, etc.
