“Happy birthday Simmers! We’re celebrating with sales and a time limited trial,” the Steam page announcing the anniversary celebrations said. Create unique Sims whose personalities and appearances you choose and play through the stories of their lives. You’ll constantly discover new reasons to celebrate as they make friends, fall in love, build their careers, and grow their families. Try The Sims 4 between Feb 3-7 and save 88% when you purchase from Feb 3-11. Also, save on select packs that expand your Sims’ world with new locations, jobs, and gameplay from Feb 3-11.”
For those who haven’t waded into the dense world of Sims DLC before, add-ons are divided into a couple of different categories. You’ve got Expansions which are the biggest releases and add the most content, Game Packs which could be described as the “medium” content level that equips players with different adventures and activities, and then finally there’s the Stuff Packs which cost the least and come with an equivalent level of content. Each category features across-the-board prices for the packs within, so the discounts are easy enough to figure out in sales like these. Expansions are half off at $19.99 each, Game Packs are 30% off at $13.99 each, and Stuff Packs are 30% off at $6.99 each for the duration of this sale.
