However, many players have reported that the expansion was not available for download even after pre-order. In this article, we are going to discuss and share all the details of this issue. Here’s everything you need to know.
Sims 4 Cottage Living Expansion
The Cottage Living Expansion is similar to the Eco Lifestyle expansion pack which EA released last year in June that encouraged upcycling, growing your own food, wind turbines, solar power, and more. The expansion is available for $40 on various platforms including S4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC on Origin, the Microsoft Store, and Steam.
