In one of the first-ever interactive careers of The Sims 4, players can become a Doctor, Detective, or Scientist in the Get To Work expansion pack. Unlike other gameplay mechanics of previous installments, you can now do a series of tasks to perform at your job and create a business of your own, such as a bakery, art gallery, and many more.

There are sure to be more Sims 4 EP’s in the near future, along with ongoing sales and discounts during various seasons. However, we could expect a new lineup of add-ons once The Sims 5 makes its debut. It will be curious to see how the new entry takes on the classic expansion packs, given that multiplayer will be available.

According to The Sims 4’s current roadmap, no new expansion packs will be arriving anytime soon, as it leaned more toward kits. Hopefully, we’ll get more information in April to see if there are any changes on that front.

That does it for our list of all The Sims 4 expansion packs. For more information on the latest EP, be sure to check out our For Rents cheats guide. You can also check our ranking of all expansion packs if you aren’t sure which one is considered the best.
