‘The Sims 4’ Latest Rumors, Release Date & Update: Get Ready For The ‘City Life’ Expansion Pack

“The Sims 4” could be receiving a much clamoured DLC soon with leaks spreading of an alleged “City Life” expansion in the works. All this popped up at a site over in Brazil referring to it as “The Sims 4: Vida na Cidade” or “The Sims 4: City Life” when translated.

Game & Guide did touch a bit on that in a previous post, an expansion that would succeed the “Dine Out” DLC. As mentioned, the translated title of the expansion pack alone should give followers of the famed life-simulator game an idea of what to expect.

When word of the “The Sims 4: City Life” came out, the original screenshots were taken down. “Sims Community” managed to take screen captures before the site went down though it remains to be seen if the images are (or will be) legit, Neurogadget reported.

Brazil arm sets deadline

EA’s official game publisher and distributor over in Brazil, Sony DADC, reportedly bared documents telling EA that they have 30 days to decide on whether to make the listing official or not.

In the event that EA fails to act on it, Sony DADC can post the listing without any permission from them though doing so may be a bit odd. For one, why should they publish the expansion pack if its actual state is uncertain? This could throw folks off and cause even more trouble. Somehow it doesn’t add up.

Per the documentation, “The Sims 4: City Life” is set to be unveiled on Sept. 17, 2016. EA has not mentioned anything about the expansion actually in the works or for release, meaning all this should be taken lightly for now.

With no game console version expected plus the sketchy future of “The Sims 5”, offering DLC packs for “The Sims 4” users seems like the next best thing EA and Maxis can do for now.
