Okay so the Sims 4 has been dead to me for a good while now. I don't play it and I think the last pack I got was University in like 2019? I've only opened the game a couple of times to build something.

But leak of a new expansion pack coming could well entice me back to play The Sims 4 again. I've always loved the concept of building and living in apartments and expected to be able to do this in City Living back in 2016. But here we are, 7 years later and that dream may have finally come true.

The Sims 4 For Rent:

Quote:
The New Lot Type in Town: Yes, yes, and YES! Get super creative with multi-family dwellings. Whether you want a basement suite, a cozy duplex, or a full-fledged apartment complex, the Sims world is your oyster.

Property Management: As a property-owner Sim, you can dive deep into the real estate game, earning Simoleons and managing your units. But remember, a poor Unit Rating could spell disaster with a Tenant Revolt (Yikes!).

Closer Than Ever: Get ready for some neighborly love… or chaos! Sims living in these Residential Rentals will have plenty of chances to bond, or, you know, snoop around.

Bustling & Beautiful New World: The expansion brings in a vibrant world known as Tomarang. And one of its highlighted spots? The Night Market. Ready to discover exotic foods and unique items?
I love the idea of being a landlord or just building apartment buildings and moving in multiple households. This should have been a thing ages ago, but better late than never I guess. I hope it's true.

Why? It's gonna be broken af anyway, just like all the other packs.

Sims 2 and 3 are so much better than this sorry excuse of a game.

The issue with packs as of late is barren theyíve become. Having survived long enough to experience LAUNCHES dating back to The Sims 1, an expansion pack geared towards being a landlord seems incredibly small. A few months ago we got horses as itís own pack when that was a feature in a TS3 pack.

Not only that, but we got apartments in an expansion pack already, so the feature is being sold again with no other major features included with it, or any other form of property ownership.

Name a TS4 pack better than Nightlife or Open For Business. You canít. TS3 couldnít even do that.

While Iím looking forward to apartments, I know I should expect a barebones property ownership system and minimal pack integration. Even Apartment Life has content for cities and social systems.

This is the only pack in a while that has seemed interesting to me. Unfortunately, as others have said, it will probably be a barren buggy mess on release. The thing is with Sims 4 expansions is that they barely expand anything. The older i get the harder and harder i find myself justifying the 40 dollar price tag for just a small amount of content

I don't doubt the pack will be just as empty and buggy as the others. I'm just excited to build proper apartments and have multiple households on one lot. Something I've wanted for ages.

Hopefully I'll get it with a discount on CDkeys so I'm not paying full price.

I will probably end up moving most of my main Sims families into the same apartment complex for the drama

exactlyyy. All the affairs and relationship drama I wanna do will be fun. Have the different apartments fit each families style and quantity. All in one place will be so much easier to play with.
