Official description Edit

Rule the Workplace

You rule the workplace with The Sims 4 Get to Work. Actively control your Sims while they’re on the job, and determine whether they're headed toward a big promotion or are becoming the workplace menace. Jump to the rescue and save countless lives as a Doctor, torment your neighbors with mischievous inventions as a Scientist, or investigate crime scenes and crack the big cases as a Detective. If you’d rather be your own boss, you can even create, customize, and manage your own retail businesses and become a Simoleonaire! You decide how your Sims get to work.

Become a Doctor, Detective, or Scientist. Control your Sims in all-new career venues, and use your analytical mastermind to create crazy inventions as a Scientist, see what secrets you uncover as you investigate crime scenes as a Detective, or treat patients, deliver babies, and perform emergency surgery as a Doctor.

Create unique retail businesses. You rule your business! Create any type of retail business you desire, including bakeries, clothing boutiques, art galleries, bookstores, and many more. Customize every facet of your business with Build Mode and watch the Simoleons roll in! Select what items to sell, manage your employees as you see fit, and schmooze your customers to close the sale. 

Learn new skills. Teach your Sims some new skills to create more unique objects to enjoy in The Sims 4. Capture the picture-perfect photo or bake and decorate a delicious treat with the new Photography and Baking skills. Display your creations at home or sell them to earn some extra Simoleons!

Get to Work includes a new independent neighborhood - Magnolia Promenade. Magnolia Promenade is not a full world, and contains four lots, three of which have prebuilt stores, and one empty lot that the player can build their own business on. Get to Work also includes a secret lot called "Sixam" (which is "Maxis" spelled backwards), which can be found using the Wormhole Generator, available at level 10 of the new Scientist Career. Sixam is a great place to find some alien friends or find new collectables.

Get to Work is the second expansion pack in The Sims series to include Sim-owned businesses, the first being The Sims 2: Open for Business. Get to Work is also the second expansion pack to feature aliens; aliens appeared in The Sims 2 base game and The Sims 3: Seasons. Aliens in Get to Work are the first aliens in the series not to only have green skin. Get to Work is the second expansion in the series to feature "active" professions, the first being The Sims 3: Ambitions. The active careers in Get to Work are Science, Law Enforcement and Medicine.


Get to Work 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.[5] Expansion pack prices for The Sims 4 are intended to be similar to prices for The Sims 3 expansion packs in most locations.
