Yesterday was the worst day of the month for many individuals — lease day. And should you actually like to torture your self, I’ve nice information for you.
Within the upcoming Sims four For Hire Enlargement Pack, gamers can have their Sims relive all the thrill and annoyances of renting life. Gamers can construct multiunit housing in a tropical, vaguely Southeast Asian-inspired city referred to as Tomarang, and items might be something from basement residences to duplexes.
Aspiring landlords, take notice: the sport growth means that you can strive your hand at managing leases by turning into a property proprietor. Landlord Sims can earn money from their savvy investments and may stay on-site or have their house on a separate lot away from tenants.
Additionally, housing insecurity is a factor in The Sims now. Flats can have insect infestations, defective plumbing and electrical energy, and even mould. (As somebody who simply had an exterminator come final month, that is hitting somewhat too near house for me.) The sport additionally introduces a brand new concern for tenant Sims: being afraid of getting evicted. Is there a housing disaster in Tomarang, too? There’s something deeply hilarious and twisted about making little landlord Sims and having them evict one another. Additionally, if a Sim resembling DJ Envy or his enterprise companion exhibits up providing recommendation, run.
To be honest, I keep in mind as a child being obsessive about the Sims 2 Condo Life growth pack when it was launched — one thing about having a loud neighbor on the opposite facet of the wall was thrilling to preteen me. However at the very least in that model of the sport, the landlords have been simply type of there, often accumulating lease and in any other case tending to the shrubs.
The way forward for The Sims might be radically totally different from the sport we all know. Although the following era is reportedly “years out” from releasing, EA has stated it should incorporate multiplayer options along with the normal single-player format. We additionally now know that the essential options of the sport, codenamed Venture Rene, will probably be free to obtain — customers will solely pay for extra packs of actions and options.
