San Myshuno isn’t just a neighborhood or a place for your Sims to live in The Sims 4 City Living* Expansion Pack (coming November 1st!) – it’s an entire character by itself. We wanted San Myshuno to have as much character as our favorite cities in the world, so that when Sims go there, you can say “wow, that is new!” Let’s talk about some of the cool, weird things you’ll find exploring the city of San Myshuno!
Hit the Festivals! You may or may not know that San Myshuno is a city with festivals! Festivals are like venues that come and go, bringing with them new game-play, new stories, and new contests for your Sims. Festivals are perfect for foodies, lovers, geeks, and even those who love hunting for a good deal. Every neighborhood has a different festival, so send your Sims outside to join in the fun before they close!
Try new foods. We wanted to make San Myshuno a diverse city with interesting cultures, and the most delicious part of culture is food! San Myshuno introduces food stands with dozens of new recipes. Plus, to make it a little easier, your Sims can learn the recipes just by sampling, which pairs perfectly with our new City Native Aspiration. Your Sim can really get out there and sample the world’s delicious cuisine!
Grab some swag. Festivals are fun, but what is the point in going if you can’t take something awesome home? Don’t worry, we got you covered. Festivals all have Swag stalls to sell t-shirts, unique spices, special fireworks, and more to your Sims. Bring a few extra Simoleons and send them home with something that says “I was there!”
Collect snow globes! People throw junk out all the time in the cities, but one Sim’s junk is another Sim’s treasure! Keep your eyes peeled for cardboard boxes on the streets. Your Sims might find snow globes to complete the new collection.
Shoot some Hoops. We’ve wanted to add the basketball hoop for a long time, and San Myshuno is the perfect setting for this object. Your Sims can head to the court in the Spice District, or build one in their penthouse high rise, to shoot the hoops with friends after work. Basketball is the perfect way to burn a few calories gained eating samosas from the food cart, and to make new friends!
Meet interesting new Sims. San Myshuno is filled with fascinating people. There are buskers hoping your Sims will spare a few Simoleons in tips. There are living statues who may, or may not, be convincing. There are tourists bumbling about. You might meet the next Sim that’ll be your Sim’s next roommate, or even soulmate. Or, perhaps you’ll encounter a bizarre…trash panda? We’ve said too much. Let’s just say that San Myshuno is full of interesting Sims!
Try out Graffiti. We always want to give Sims a way to express themselves and affect the world around them, which made murals a perfect addition to San Myshuno. Sims who love to paint can shake their spray can to add graffiti, a beautiful community mural, or even deface something that a rival painted. Don’t settle for bland concrete when there are all the possibilities of a mural at your Sims’ finger tips!
Master Karaoke. We’re introducing the Singing Skill in The Sims 4 City Living, which means you may hear Sims singing joyfully, or badly, out on the street corner. Send your Sims to join with the sing along, or send them to the nearby Planet Sing-Pop Karaoke bar. Either way, music is in the air…. even if it’s sometimes off-key.
Stand for a cause. Your Sims can try out three new careers in San Myshuno, including the Political career, which is perfect for Sims with a cause in their hearts and a sign in their hands. Sims can protest on the streets of San Myshuno, or if they move up in the career, they can give speeches to the crowd from their podium. Spread the good word and make the citizens of San Myshuno more conscious.
San Myshuno is a vibrant urban environment and the crown jewel of The Sims 4 City Living. We cannot wait until your Sims move into the city and hit the sidewalks to learn about all the content we’ve jam packed on the pavement, on November 1st 2016.
