The Sims 4: Island Living is the seventh expansion pack for The Sims 4, released on June 21, 2019. It allows Sims to live in the world of Sulani, a tropical island. Sims can enjoy themselves in relaxing beach activities, lounging in cool waters, or exploring the oceans by either snorkeling or canoeing, where they can meet mermaids and dolphins. A conservationist career is introduced along with several part-time jobs. It is the spiritual successor to The Sims 3: Island Paradise.
Gameplay and development
Sulani is divided into three islands:
- Ohan'ali Town – This is where most lots on the islands reside and notably the most inhabited island on Sulani. It has now developed into the main town region.
- Lani St. Taz is an tropical paradise where the beaches are filled with white sand, along with the water being warm.
- Mua Pel'am is situated near the active volcano. Nature rules over this island, from the volcano to a waterfall to a cave. There are no sims that live on this island.
Mermaids have similar needs to normal Sims, but replace the Hygiene need with a new need, Hydration. In order to maintain this need, a mermaid Sim can go swimming (either in the ocean or a swimming pool), shower, bathe or take a drink of water. In exchange for this restriction, mermaids have the ability to influence the moods and actions of other Sims with various Siren Songs, most of which deplete Hydration. While swimming in the ocean, mermaids also have the ability to summon an azure dolphin. Azure dolphins function identically to regular dolphins, save for the ability to summon them anywhere.
On the aggregator site Metacritic, Island Living received a score of 84 based on 6 reviews by critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews". However, reviews given by the website's users were substantially more negative with the pack receiving a score of 4.7 based on 33 ratings, indicated "generally unfavorable reviews". Entertainment news website Geek Culture gave the expansion 7.5/10 commenting "The island and the world is beautifully created and the amount of effort and attention to detail is evident in its surrounding but regular players might be a bit unnerved by the lack of activity for this expansion pack." Another entertainment website, Digital Spy, stated "Sulani feels like more than just a holiday destination. It's a living, breathing world that is easy to get lost in.
