Early Black Friday gaming deals are back with an excellent offer for folks looking to start a new virtual life, as the PC version of The Sims 4 is just $5 and its expansion packs are 50% off at Amazon.
The Sims 4 base game is usually $40, which is an investment on its own, but once you start getting into the expansions (and you will), that's when it really starts to take a toll on your wallet. Thankfully, Black Friday has tons of deals on games, and a whole bunch of The Sims 4 DLCs are on discount.
The Sims 4 first launched back in 2014, but there have been many expansion packs, game packs, "stuff packs," and bundles launched since then. As recently as this summer, GamesRadar's Alyssa Mercante argued that the Cottage Living DLC is proof EA is listening to players seven years from the game's launch. If you've been meaning to finally check it out, now's as good a time as ever, as the base game is just 88% off for Black Friday.
If you enjoy the base game enough, or if you're a seasoned player waiting for a discount on any number of DLCs, there are a bunch of 50% off deals on expansions too. That way you can keep things fresh with a stuff pack or get into the game proper with a bundle at a fraction of the usual cost.
In case your PC needs a little love before you make it your new Sims home, Amazon is also running a ton of deals on components like monitors, keyboards, headsets, SSDs, and more.
