The Sims Official Blog: The Sims 4 Island Living is Coming Ashore

The Sims 4: Island Living was officially announced as the next expansion pack at EA Play today. The Sims Team has shared a new blog post with us, highlighting some key features of the new expansion and what we can expect to see in the pack when it launches.

From EA.com:

The SimsTM 4 Island Living* is coming for PC, Mac, Xbox One, and PlayStation®4! Sand, sun, and endless fun await as your Sims make their own paradise on Sulani, where the sunshine is bright, and the nights are totally chill.

When Can You Start Your Island Life?

While weighing out whether to flip for traditional island events, catch some rays, become besties with a dolphin, lounge out in the cool water, or slip on some local clothing (our suggestion: all of the above), don’t forget to remember these important dates. The Sims 4 Island Living launches on PC and Mac on June 21 and on Xbox One and PS4 July 16. That’s right, we’re announcing the launch dates for all, right now! Cause Island Living is cool like that.

What Will You Find on the Island?

Glad you asked! First, though, no matter what you do, remember to relax a little, okay? When you’re living in Sulani, the vibe is laid back. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot of fun in the sun to be had. Check out some of the relaxing activities to enjoy (in a relaxed manner):

  • Wave Away: Like getting out on the crystal-clear water? Set sail in your island canoe, swim to your heart’s content, and explore the surf on an Aqua-Zip. When you need a beach break, build a spectacular sandcastle or lounge out and catch some rays. You might even meet a mermaid!
  • Choose a Cool Job: Sure, relaxing is, well, relaxing! But helping ensure the island stays pristine and making a positive impact is another level of awesome. Pitch in by becoming a Conservationist, cleaning up the beaches, and watching your Sims’ impact bloom all over Sulani’s most untouched island. Your Sims can also try a part-time job as a Diver, a Lifeguard, or a Fisherman. Or you can just wing it and pick up the occasional Odd Job! Find a way to make money that best suits your Sim’s laid-back lifestyle.
  • Live Like a Local: Sulani traditions define the island, and your Sims wouldn’t reach real island heights if they didn’t experience as many as possible. Immerse Sims in their newfound lifestyle by bonding with neighbors at the fiery Island Celebration, taking part in local culture, tasting tropical delicacies, and pleasing ancient spirits from the island.
  • Dress the Part: You don’t want Sims to be sweating with the big sun beating down, so dress them in tropical outfits perfect for the beach, diving deep, or frolicking in the ocean. Just watch out for those tan lines! You can also decorate their very own rustic paradise with home objects or unwind at the tiki bar.

Everything is chill (except for the occasional lava bomb) when it’s Island Living – so make sure those release dates don’t slip your mind with all that relaxing!

  1. I dunno what it is but just watching the trailer and seeing all the bright amazing colors and details just puts me at ease. Gonna do everything that this pack suggests and at the end of the day I will be bathing out in the water, just hope no sharks are nearby. Be cool if you can dress up as a shark just to chase other swimmers around, or grow a SharkPlant careful don’t get too close.

    • plus be cool if you can hand-make a sleeping bag out of the environment so you can slumber anywhere you please.

  2. This new expansion pack has me so happy. Love the bright colors, the happy music and the dolphin. I’m hoping that we can make mermaids and mermen!!! And little merchildren??

  3. I am beyond excited for this pack. I’ve been keeping very up to date with this ever since the leaks happened. This is a pack that I have wanted since seasons came out. This would work so well with seasons! I have wanted to make a YouTube channel to do a series on these things but never have. I want to even more now seeing this because it seems like there’s so much to do. I may just start one but will take more time on my part. I am so stoked to check everything out in this expansion. I just hope everything people are worried about right now was considered in the making of this and won’t be much of an issue at all.
