The Sims 4 Gives Players A Blank Slate With Free Newcrest Update

EA has announced that it is bringing some new content to The Sims 4 next week. Starting on June 11, players will be able to download Newcrest, a free update that gives players a bit more space to work with.

With Newcrest, EA is adding three new neighborhoods, each with five vacant lots to build on. The lots range in size from a massive 50x40 to a more modest 20x15. 

Newcrest will be available to all Sims 4 players who have access to an internet connection. If you'd like to check out more of the free Newcrest update, you can check out the very brief look below.


Our Take
While it's good to see the team supporting this game through free expansions and updates, this is all stuff that should have been in at launch. Despite this free content, The Sims 4 still lags behind The Sims 3 in terms of what the overall package offers.
