The Sims 4 – Cottage Living Expansion Pack

On June 10th, EA and Maxis revealed the next expansion for The Sims 4, titled ‘Cottage Living’. The pack will include a brand new town called Henford-on-Bagley, and will give your sims a change of pace compared to the busy hustle and bustle city life they’ve become accustomed to.

Sims will now be able to enjoy life in a cozy village whilst growing their own produce, raising farmyard animals, and experiencing new ways to connect with nature.

Get ready to explore the countryside, build your own charming cottage, and live out the fantasy you’ve always dreamed of in Henford-on-Bagley. But be ready for some work too, in Cottage Living your sims will be able to grow their own fruits and vegetables and forage for ingredients in the wild.

The Sims 4 Cottage Living will be available for $39.99.
