Looking for some quiet time? The Sims 4 has you covered with the release of its Cottage Living expansion pack. It’s going to take players to a small countryside town called Henford-on-Bagley.

While this village has the usual animals and gardening, there is more to it. Players can take the time to relax and drink a glass or two at The Gnome’s Arms. For those who want to know more, drop by the grocery stall and share wild stories with the Sim running it. Feeling adventurous? Why not head to the Crumplebottoms and ask for some advice?

For this new expansion pack, players can expect these features:

  • Embrace Village Life
    • Settle into the close-knit community of Henford-on-Bagley.
    • Explore the countryside and see what it has to offer like learning about the history of this town.
    • Don’t forget to grab a picnic basket and enjoy the outdoors.
    • Sims have the chance to help villagers with errands and then earn unique gifts.
  • Raise or Befriend Animals
    • Sims can now raise their own cottage animals and get:
      • Fresh milk from cows
      • Eggs from chickens
    • Earn the trust of wild foxes, rabbits, and flocks of birds to get gifts as well as assistance in the garden.
  • Live off the Land
    • Take on the new Simple Living Lot Challenge where recipes need fresh ingredients for each meal.
    • Whether Sims grow, raise, forage in the wild, or order them from the village market, it’s important to remember that fresh is always the best.
    • Sims have the chance to make a name for themselves.
    • The Finchwick Fair is the best place to enter oversized crops, delicious pies, prized cows, llamas, and chickens.

The Sims 4 Cottage Living Lead Producer Antonio Romeo said that with this new expansion pack, players can get those creative juices flowing especially with how they can connect to their surroundings. He added that this may be the most wholesome experience The Sims 4 has to offer.
