The Sims 4: Island Living Now Available for Preorder on Origin

The Sims 4: Island Living is now available for preorder on Origin!

Island Living will launch worldwide on June 21st, 2019.

From Origin:

Explore a breezy world drenched in sun, sand and endless fun as your Sims make their own paradise in The Sims 4 Island Living. Whether they contribute to the conservation effort or prefer living off the grid, your Sims can take the plunge and enjoy what this unique culture has to offer. Embrace traditional events, wear native clothing styles or sip on some kava. It’s all part of Sulani island life.


Sit Back and Relax: Welcome to Sulani, where the sun shines bright and the nights are totally chill. Set sail on the glistening water in your island canoe, swim to your heart’s content, and explore the scenery on a watercraft. Build a spectacular sand castle, catch some rays and even meet a mermaid!

Pitch In or Help Out: Become a conservationist, clean up the beaches and watch your Sims’ impact bloom all over the island. Take to the waves in a fishing or diving career, or become a lifeguard to keep the locals safe under the sun. No career? No problem! Sims can do odd jobs or fish for their next meal.

Engage in Local Culture: Tradition runs deep on Sulani, and your Sims get to experience everything it has to offer. Immerse Sims in their newfound lifestyle by attending a pit barbecue event, learning about local folklore, tasting tropical delicacies and chatting with ancestors from the island.

Rock the Island Vibes: Dress Sims in tropical garb inspired by sun, sand and waves. Or, gear up for water activities like snorkeling and swimming. Decorate a rustic oasis with home objects and unwind at the tiki bar. Everything is chill (except for the occasional sunburn) when it’s Island Living.

  • Wait it’s an ep? Good, I hope we a better world than in the past, and I can’t wait for this to come out so my sims can actually swim in the water

    • @MayFlowers04, an EP is short for Expansion Pack . It is the largest of the 3 types of packs available for The Sims 4. More items, more interactions, more gameplay than a GP (Game Pack) or a SP (Stuff Pack). Other EPs were Get to Work, Get Together, City Living, Cats & Dogs, Seasons, and Get Famous.

  • I am just looking forward to seeing what new foods that will be introduced, and hopefully plenty lot space for build. But an active volcano? hmm cool

    • @DrXtreme80, well, the pictures show a pit with a mound covered in leaves. Hawaiians will often pit roast pigs for large luaus. Also, it is said we can learn how to make Kava, which is a drink in that culture. I would think we could also roast other items. (My guess they have a veggie roast for the Vegetarians in the game, I’m also hoping for pineapples (one of my favorites) along with coconuts and guava! I do nor know if poi will make it to the game , but it would be interesting if it did.

  • I was just wondering, what does preorder mean?
    If I preorder, can I access the pack right after I pay, or just a few hours before the actual release?

    • You can’t play it right after you pre-ordered it. For example, the original release for this Expansion pack is June 21st, but you might be able to play it June 20th. It isn’t guaranteed, though.

    • You don’t have access to it right after it is pre-ordered, you might get it a bit earlier, like June 20th, for this pack.

  • I have already preordered Island Living!! I am counting down to when I can play it! The trailer looks so awesome! Cant wait to get my sims on the jet ski too!!! and……. love the dolphins!!!!!!

  • Do you know if I can buy Island Living as a bundle in Origin just after launch? Because I can’t seem to order a bundle (even though it shows up as an option when clicking the pre-order button for Island Living) as it is right now.
