Eco Lifestyle and Get to Work are the best packs for players who want an injection of new mechanics, things to do, and other gameplay. Players who enjoy detailed tasks, more realistic gameplay, and building their communities will enjoy the green living of Eco Lifestyle.

Get to Work gives players a variety of new careers, aliens, and even some fun retail mechanics. Follow your sim to work as a police detective, explore an alien world, and more in this pack. The impressive thing about Get to Work is that it is one of the earlier packs from The Sims 4.

Players who desire a new place to let their Sims run around and get into antics will love buying either Island Living, Snowy Escape, or Cottage Living. Cottage Living puts players in a quaint English rural community, Snowy Escape transports sims to mountainous Japan (or heavily inspired by it), and Island Living puts you on a tropical map. These neighborhoods offer the ability to transport your Sims to a place like no other.
