At its EA Play 2019 event this year, Electronic Arts unveiled a number of things, including an extended look at Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, details about Apex Legends' second season, and Chapter 5 of Battlefield V's ongoing content drop. After all that, it's the turn of The Sims 4 and its newly announced Island Living expansion. You can check out the trailer above.
Island Living is the seventh expansion to the game - not counting the seven game packs and 14 stuff packs - after Get to Work (March 2015), Get Together (December 2015), City Living (November 2016), Cats & Dogs (November 2017), Seasons (June 2018), and Get Famous (November 2018). It adds the tropical island destination of Sulani, where sims can relax and take part in the local culture.
Players will now be able to take advantage of the setting by swimming in the water surrounding the island, surfing via Aqua-Zip, or going for a canoe ride. Furthermore, sims can now build sand castles, and even potentially encounter a mermaid.
On the job front, you will now be able to choose Conservationist as your job, in order to clean the beaches and keep them pristine, in addition to part-time jobs like Diver, Fisherman, Lifeguard, and even the occasional Odd Job.
You'll also be able to take part in the Island Celebration, taste the local delicacies, attend a pit barbecue event, talk to the island elders and of course, dress the part.
The Sims 4 Island Living is now available for pre-order via Origin for $39.99 and will launch on Windows and macOS on June 21. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are set to arrive on July 16, for the same price.
