With the announcement, anyone will be able to download the title and venture into the daily life of the EA franchise. On the other hand, whoever buys the security until October 17th, will receive the Desert Paradise Kit like a treat. It adds a modern oasis with lots of outdoor and indoor furniture, all inspired by the deserts of the Southwest.

However, we cannot fail to point out that there are, at the time of publishing this news, 57 paid DLCs and 2 free DLCs available for the Sims 4. That is, the full experience will still require the player’s wallet to be widely open.

In addition, if you have never ventured into one of the most popular life simulators in the world, it may be interesting to wait patiently until the game becomes free. The extra content via download is for another time.
