The Sims 4 is a game that has no set objective. The game is a social simulation where players create their sim and control their actions. The player becomes responsible for the sim’s needs, aspirations, desires, and lives. In The Sims 4: Cottage Living, players live in the fictional town of Henford-on-Bagley on a homestead. Here, players raise farm animals, grow crops, and interact with the village, its shops, and even its mayor. Each player can get involved in various activities like raising a family, getting a job, and participating in the town fair.
