Sims 4 Expansion Pack

Good news?maybe?for Simmers! Info has been leaked regarding the next pack?s theme and potential name. ?The information that fan site Sims Community recently discovered came from the Brazilian Ministry of Justice website, which is the agency that rates video games in Brazil. Reportedly, the next Sims 4 expansion pack will be named The Sims 4: Vida na Cidade, which translates to The Sims 4: Life in the City.

It can be recalled last year that a survey was circulated among a select group where participants were asked to vote for potential The Sims 4 expansion packs based on the different era. The Sims 4: On the Road, The Sims 4: Get Real, The Sims 4: Rebuild and The Sims 4 Metropolis were among the popular options. The survey released last year also described what could be a city-themed expansion: ?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 neighborhoods.?

Given the naming scheme for Sims games in the past, The Sims 4: Life in the City could most likely be called The Sims 4: City Life.

The Sims developer Maxis reveals no hints about upcoming content for The Sims 4 with good reason. In April 2016, the team was forced to reveal The Sims 4: Dine Out to fans after a series of leaks was reported.

Clues from game items

The Sims Community points to clues from CAS assets in The Sims 4: Backyard Stuff, which include adult and children tank tops featuring cityscapes. If we remember during The Sims 3 era, Maxis commonly subtly hinted at future content through game items.

Unfortunately, a new The Sims 4 expansion pack may not be released anytime soon. Maxis has never released two expansion packs back-to-back. It?s more likely that before a new expansion pack will be released, the game developer would first release at least one Stuff Pack and one Game pack first. That could possibly mean that The Sims 4: City Life is most likely going to be released sometime in the 2016 holiday season.

Not bad. Just in time for Christmas. That?s one more item to put in Santa?s list.
