Official description Edit
- Take Your Sims to the City
Do your Sims long to leave the suburbs behind? Fulfill their dreams in the diverse city of San Myshuno, where they can discover exciting neighborhoods, move into a new apartment, check out fun festivals and more. In The Sims™ 4 City Living your Sims can experience the joys and challenges of sharing close quarters with other Sims. Work your way up from a starter unit to a penthouse as your Sims launch new metropolitan careers!
- KEY FEATURES
Explore the bustling city of San Myshuno. This densely populated city has enough unique neighborhoods to give your Sims plenty to explore. Get creative in the Arts Quarter or sing your heart out at the Karaoke Bar in the Fashion District. Head over to the Spice Market to shoot some hoops, or invite a few friends over to play video games after a long day at the office in Uptown.
Discover lively cultural festivals. Festivals are great opportunities to enrich your Sims. Let them watch street performers, enter competitions and meet a wide variety of folks from every walk of life. Check out the Curry Challenge at the Spice Festival or light fireworks with a hot date at the Romance Festival.
Live in apartments and get closer with your neighbors. Lots of new neighbors mean all kinds of opportunities for relationships, both good and bad. Your Sims might make a new best friend or fall in love, then debate giving them a key to their place. And what about those noisy neighbors and their late night dance parties? You'll need to decide how to handle them - if you can't beat them, maybe you should join them.
Work your way up from starter apartment to penthouse. Choosing the right apartment for your Sims can be a challenge. You'll need to balance the charm of your first starter unit with possible setbacks, like cockroaches, leaky pipes or electrical problems. Help your Sims work their way up to living in a Skyscraper Penthouse, with panoramic views and even a Talking Toilet!
Embark on new, metropolitan careers. There are all kinds of new opportunities in the city so make sure your Sims take advantage of them. As a Politician, your Sims can make dramatic speeches while fighting for a good cause. Maybe they'd prefer a more refined career as a Food or Art Critic. Or they could inspire the masses working in Social Media.

World and neighborhoodsEdit
The Sims 4: City Living features a new city world named San Myshuno. San Myshuno is divided into four neighborhoods—Spice Market, Arts Quarter, Fashion District, and Uptown. San Myshuno has a total of 30 lots.
A total of 21 apartment units and three penthouses are available in San Myshuno. Multiple apartments exist in the same building, whereas penthouses are the only playable part of the buildings they occupy. Apartment interiors can be heavily modified, but apartment exteriors are not editable. Penthouses can be demolished and rebuilt, much like other buildings on a normal lot.
Apartments in San Myshuno have access to several lot traits that are exclusive to City Living. Some apartments have certain traits pre-selected, and these traits cannot be changed.
Sims in the apartment complex can knock on the door to yell about noise, Sims can enter another apartment within the complex albeit through a loading screen, and then see the other apartment and chat with their neighbor.
Sims can give trusting neighbors the key to their apartment so the trusted neighbors can walk into the household apartment anytime they like.
New apartment buildings cannot be added to San Myshuno, and apartments are not available in any other world in The Sims 4.
City Living reintroduces the ability to build Penthouses on the top of certain Skyscraper buildings. All three penthouse lots are the epitome of a penultimate lifestyle. They are placed atop decorative buildings that do not have any limitations beyond their lot size, so you can use them for residential and commercial venues.
Living on a penthouse is not very different. But in order to make the penthouse work, the player needs to add an elevator, a recycle bin, and a mailbox. Community lot penthouse also needs an elevator for Sims to travel up and down the building. Other Sims will visit these lots the same way as they do in normal community lots in other worlds.
As with apartments, penthouses are also not available in other worlds and are only found in San Myshuno.
In City Living Sims can now attend different festivals. There are five festivals: Geekcon, Humor and Hijinks Festival, Romance Festival, Spice Festival and Flea market that take place around the different districts of San Myshuno over the course of a two-week cycle.
To see when the next festival is going to take place, you can use the “Read About Festival” interaction on the bulletin boards in apartments, or read about the festival on dynamic signs located around San Myshuno. The informational pop-up for each festival will let you know what activities, competitions, and schedules are relevant for each festival.
When the festival begins, an identifying jingle will accompany a pop-up notification letting you know the festival is about to begin. When the festival is active, the notification will also allow Sims to teleport to the festival if they are in a different neighborhood.
City Living introduces three new careers: critic, social media, and politics. Each career track has two career branches. These careers include interactive career assignments, where Sims in these careers have job tasks that take them to various locations around their world.
An hour before Sims are required to leave home to go to work, an alarm notification will appear on the lower left hand side of the screen. From there you can choose to “Go to Work”, “Work from Home” or “Take the Day Off”.
When opting to work from home, the game will generate two randomized tasks for the day. Completing those tasks before the next work day will guarantee a performance boost that is added to the payment received at the end of the work day.
City Living was priced at $39.99 USD and £29.99 GBP at launch, the same as the original pricing of an expansion pack for The Sims 3. Expansion pack prices for The Sims 4 are intended to be similar to prices for The Sims 3 expansion packs in most locations.
