The Sims 4 remains one of the most popular games of the century. But 2021’s version differs from the 2014’s one, due to lots of expansion packs and tons of extra content. If you have lost track of what’s worth your attention, here are the most impressive DLC that make it an almost new game.

Expansion Packs

This full-fledged DLC comes at $39.99, brings new mechanics and lots of content. Here are the most impressive ones:

  • City Living. It makes the game much denser, as you can live in a packed neighborhood with lots of NPC and services around you.
  • Cottage Living. It’s exactly the opposite: idyllic bucolic life introduces animals and plants, building and new types of socializing.
  • Cats and Dogs. It’s just what it says on the tin, except for raccoons and foxes coming in domestic disguise.
  • Seasons. Not only does it add fruits and vegetables of seasons, but also introduces celebrations, holidays, and the weather.

Game Packs

Smaller than Expansion Packs, these packs usually come at $19.99 and contain less content, but still, make the game feel new.

  • Parenthood. This game pack reviews the process of raising kids and makes it way more enjoyable.
  • Strangerville. The freshness of this pack is an attempt to bring a storyline into the simulator, effectively making it an RPG.
  • Dream Home Decorator. Again, it’s exactly what it says on the tin, and if you use The Sims 4 to visualize your perfect life, this is for you.
  • Vampires. Your family can now sleep in coffins, lead a nocturnal life, suck human blood, and improve vampire skills.

Stuff Packs

Though you can’t expect a revolution for $9.99, these packs can also change your game experience.

  • Paranormal. You can become a paranormal investigator, live in a haunted house, or learn to be a medium.
  • Backyard. Again, it’s a great tool for visualizers.
  • Vintage Glamour. Being a bit conservative and traditional is so cute, and this pack delivers it.
  • Bowling Night. If you feel the Sims 4 lacks mini-games, this one is here to the rescue.

This is not the complete list of expansions, thus you can continue exploring new Sims 4 tools on your own. If you want your game completely reimagined, any of these packs will bring some fun to the game again. How do you like it? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
