Preparing for The Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle + Base Game Update

Preparing for The Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle + Base Game Update

As you all might know The Sims Team is doing two big releases for The Sims 4 THIS WEEK! The first one is a huge update for The Sims 4 Base Game that’s rolling out for both PC and Xbox One / PS4 on June 2nd! The update is bringing some huge new features to the game including Ladders, Firefighters, Bills & Utilities, Free Window / Door Placement and more that we’ve covered here!

The other big release is The Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle Expansion Pack that’s coming out on both PC and Consoles on June 5th. Just like with previous Expansion Pack releases this one’s going to have 5 different release times and you can find out exactly when the pack’s coming out in your territory HERE!

The Sims 4 Base Game Update

The first big thing that we’re getting is tomorrow’s huge update for the base game with some of the following additions:

  • Build Mode Object Stats Revamp
  • Off-The-Grid Improvements
  • Ladders
  • Free Placement of Windows & Doors
  • Bills & Utilities Revamp
  • Repomen
  • Firefighters
  • Inventory 2.0
  • Updated World Descriptions

The update will revamp a lot of things so if you have some Mods / CC installed on your PC expect for them to be disabled after the update automatically. It’s also worth noting that the update will probably affect and break some of the current versions of the mods you might have so make sure you keep track of updates from the creators of such mods! If your game is broken after the update and you’ve enabled Mods / CC make sure you disable them until creators release newer versions of their mods.

Here are some useful articles to help ensure a stabile CC / Mods experience after updating The Sims 4:
