The Sims 4: Get to Work has been announced, promising to give you active control over your Sims’ careers.
It’s sort of like The Sims 3: Ambitions, basically. You can make your Sim a Doctor, or a Scientist, or a Detective; you can save lives/deliver babies, craft inventions, or investigate crimes and crack cases, with direct controls over said Sim throughout this career.
If you don’t fancy that, then The Sims 4: Get to Work also throws in the ability to open up a retail outlet. Make a bakery, or a boutique, or an art gallery, or something! All of which sounds pretty good, because The Sims 3: Ambitions – while not the most ambitious of expansions (ho ho) – did add a certain something to that game. And considering some of the The Sims 4‘s big problems were “not enough to do” and “life is suddenly set in one goddamn lot again”, this might improve things! Although I’m curious as to how careers involving travelling around the city will work.
You can see an announcement trailer and some lovely shiny screens for The Sims 4: Get to Work below. The expansion pack itself is due out in April.
