The Sims 4 For Rent: Official Gameplay Trailer

Explore a bustling new world and get up close and personal with neighbors in The Sims™️ 4 For Rent Expansion Pack*, launching Dec 7 at 10 a.m. PT. Pre-order or buy through January 18 to get the Street Eats Digital Content**! (This content will become available when the pack launches.)

There’s a new way for Sims to generate income – by investing in Residential Rentals. As a property owner your Sim can live among their tenants and be a hands-on property manager, or they can live away from their investment in a separate residence. But don’t let them get passive about this income stream! Property owners will have to keep their unit ratings high through regular maintenance or they could wind up dealing with a Tenant Revolt.

Residential Rentals are more than just a way for savvy Sims to make Simoleons; they’re a way to bring communities together and tell new kinds of stories. Maybe your Sim is starting fresh in a basement suite, or maybe two young Sims become sweethearts after growing up in different units of the same duplex. You can now divide lots into multiple units, which creates new possibilities for what you can build. It also means different families will be living on the same lot and have plenty of chances to interact with each other.

Your Sims can bond with their neighbors, chatting by the mailboxes in their apartment building or enjoying food together at a potluck. Or, they can seize the opportunity to dig up dirt on everyone around them. Eavesdropping, snooping, and breaking into their neighbors units are all on the table.

Available December 7 at 10 a.m. PT.

*Requires The Sims 4 & all game updates. For PC, see minimum system requirements for the pack.
