The Sims 4 Horse Ranch Expansion

Today Electronic Arts revealed a brand new DLC for The Sims 4, titled "Horse Ranch Expansion Pack

The DLC will be released for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on July 20 at 10:00 am PST and will finally let your sims move out of town to establish their own ranch and get some well-deserved relaxation with their new friends. 

Horses have been a much-desired piece of content among the community, so it's likely that many will be happy about this announcement. Those who pre-order or purchase the expansion by August 31 will get the "Rockin’ Rancher Digital Content" including the Softly Spoke n' Petals, the '63 Twilight Notes Resonator Guitar, and the Rocking Star. 

You can watch the trailer below alongside an official description of the content of the DLC.

Make a Life

Get up early in the morning, look out at the big open countryside, and know that all your work is worth it. Spend your days keeping your animals happy and clean, harvesting Prairie Grass to feed them, collecting Horse Manure to fertilize your plants, and making your own Nectar to sell. Do it all on a ranch you design, whether that means a traditional cabin or a big red barn.

Bond With Animals

Fill your ranch with animal friends and carve out a life together. Your horses – including adorable foals – are part of your household and have lots of special interactions with both Sims and other horses. You can also care for mini goats and mini sheep, and invite neighbors to come see how cute they are.

Join a Thriving Community

Living on a ranch has its moments of peace and solitude, but there’s also a lively social scene. Your Sims can go into town to meet friends at the bar, blow off steam at the dance hall, or train at the equestrian park. They can also host events like cookouts and dances on their own property, and hire a ranch hand to help when the work builds up.

Raise Horses

Horses are part of the family. Customize hoofed friends in Create a Sim, or get new horses by rescuing or purchasing them. Foals can also be born on your ranch. Sims can learn the Riding skill, and horses can train in the Agility and Jumping skills. Skilled horses and riders can even win awards at the equestrian center.

The Sims 4 is currently available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

If you're interested in the genre, you may also want to take a look at the upcoming Life by You, published by Paradox and created by Rod Humble, whom you may know for his works on previous games of The Sims franchise.
