Sims 4 background.

EA and Maxis has announced The Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle Expansion Pack, which is coming to the PC, Mac, PS4, and Xbox One systems on June 5.

The expansion pack will give Sims the ability to go green and embrace that kind of lifestyle where alternative energy resources can be utilized. Food can also be grown, and green materials can be used to create new furniture. Sims can also join together to shape their neighborhoods and change their world around them.

“We’re thrilled to give players the opportunity to explore an eco-friendly way of living in The Sims and play the change they want to see,” said George Pigula, Producer of The Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle Expansion Pack. “By discovering and practicing sustainable habits, like using solar panels or wind turbines to power their electricity, or upcycling materials to create new furniture, players and their Sims can play with life in all-new ways.”

A new world, Evergreen Harbor, will be introduced, with Sims able to directly influence the world by producing water and solar power by using wind turbines, dew collectors, solar panels, or using a vertical garden to grow their own food. Sims can use pre-used objects and ingredients and repurpose them for their own usage as well.

If players decide not to greenify their Sims' lives, they may see garbage accumulate around their property and air pollution rise. If the opposite occurs and Sims pick up trash, maintain a healthy garden, and use eco-friendly building materials, their world will transform. Muddy waters will become clearer, buildings will be covered in greenery, and even an aurora borealis will appear in the sky.

The Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle Expansion Pack is coming to the PC, Mac, PS4, and Xbox One systems on June 5 for $39.99.
