The Sims 4 release date: When is the next Sims 4 expansion pack coming out?
EA first announced that The Sims 4 was in development in May 2013, and suggested that we'd see the game in early 2014. It actually launched later than expected, in September, but only for PC. Then, on 17 February 2015, the game arrive on Mac as a digital download from the Origin store. If you already downloaded the game for PC but now wish to play it on your Mac, you can do so simply by using the product code on the box. All buyers of the Mac version will get a PC copy and vice versa.
On 2 April, owners of The Sims 4 could also download the first full expansion pack for the game, adding lots of new features. It's called The Sims 4: Get To Work, and introduces new career paths for Sims. The Sims 4: Get To Work expansion pack is available from the Origin store for both PC and Mac for £22.49 here.
The second expansion pack for The Sims 4 was announced in August. It's called Get Together, and is set to be released in November 2015 (although no specific release date has been announced yet).
