If anyone thought that Electronic Arts was going to let The Sims 4 die because they were already preparing the new release, well, they were quite wrong. The company has launched today, March 16, the new expansion, called Growing Together.
First and foremost: the price. The company has decided that this expansion will cost 39.99 euros. Of course, to work it requires the base game, that is, the original. The good thing? The Sims 4 has been free for half a year, so this problem is solved at the first change.
This expansion seeks to make family the most important thing by strengthening bonds, making new friends (or enemies) and knowing who we surround ourselves with. “Scheduled events, such as sleepovers, and unexpected milestones, such as a mid-life crisis, will influence the life and relationships of each Sim,” notes the development team.
From here, we’ll be able to unlock and change personality traits throughout each character’s life, as well as deal with mid-life crises, family crises and more. “The bonds between related Sims are important and complex. As they share life experiences, they may experience moments of both drama and unity that will affect their family dynamics and relationships,” they note. Each Sim’s preferences will determine with whom he or she is or is not compatible.
And finally, a new location: San Sequoia. It was once a small fishing village, but now it has become a bustling city with quiet suburbs, a lively recreational center, a close-knit community and even an influential local family named Robles. This new town can be enjoyed in the Growing Up Family expansion, so the rest is just a matter of making use of it to get the most out of it.
