Island Living has open-water gameplay-your Sims can walk straight into the ocean or dive into the water right off their home's deck and begin swimming. They also have mysterious powers that EA did not divulge during EA Play. It's called Island Living and it is coming out at a ideal time of year as we head into summer and people get ready for their holidays in the sun. Look for this content to come to The Sims 4 on consoles in July. As for the "Island Living" expansion, it will be available on June 21st, while the Pride Month items will arrive in a few weeks.

Some of the most interesting that has been shown are the beach cleaning of the sims to make the island safe and unbelievable. Caring for the island and keeping it clean leads to it being more lush and handsome, while exploiting its resources or littering can leave it looking foul and blemished.

The sun shines bright on the handsome islands of Sulani. EA said riskier Sims might be courageous enough to build their homes close to its crater, but as you can see in the video below, it will periodically erupt. The first will impact the entire The Sims brand, as Maxis and EA have partnered with the LGBTQ+ non-profit organization, It Gets Better.

Set on Sulani, you will be able to take to the water in your every own island canoe, swim, and explore the scenery on a watercraft. Build a spectacular sand castle, catch some rays, and even meet a mermaid! Take to the waves in a fishing or diving career or become a lifeguard to keep the locals safe under the sun. Maybe though your Sim will need some extra cash to enjoy some of the activities.

Here's what we know, more details to be revealed at EA Play on Saturday. Immerse Sims in their newfound lifestyle by attending a pit barbecue event, learning about local folklore, tasting tropical delicacies, and chatting with ancestors from the island.

Dress your Sims in tropical garb inspired by the sun, sand and waves. Most importantly, it lets you be a mermaid and make friends with dolphins. Everything is chill (except for the occasional sunburn) when it's Island Living.
