The Sims 4‘s ninth expansion pack, Eco Lifestyle, is out now. The new expansion takes place in Evergreen Harbor where players can partake in a variety of environmentally friendly activities, like producing their own water and electricity through renewable resources.
Players can also grow their own food in a new vertical garden, break down unwanted items in the Recycler and go dumpster diving for new furniture. The expansion costs $40 and is available on PC, Mac, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.
Developer Maxis announced that the Sims 4 has seen more than 2.5 million new players in the last two months and saw a monthly peak of 10 million players in the last quarter.
“Over the last few months, we’re humbled that The Sims 4 has served as an outlet for so many players,” said Lyndsay Pearson, General Manager and Executive Producer. “We’ve seen our players recreate friend and family parties, weddings and graduations in our game – so we’re looking forward to seeing what good they do with Eco Lifestyle.”
Maxis’ parent company EA, along with other game companies, recently donated money to Black Lives Matter and related causes.
