On June 7, players of The Sims 4 will be able to take their Sims to restaurants or own their establishments with “Dine Out.” The upcoming game pack finally gives Sims the chance to visit restaurants in their leisure time. It will also let players buy and run their own eateries, letting them take control by hiring employees like chefs, waiters, and hosts.
Exotic foods, restaurant management, and other features await players in the “Dine Out” game pack for The Sims 4. Players will be able to visit pre-made restaurants, create their own, or even run a restaurant with the new pack. The game pack will include new buy and build items fitting the restaurant theme. New Sim items are also expected to be a part of the pack including new clothing and accessories.

In the “Dine Out” video, players will notice that the game pack will let children color while waiting for their meals, it will let Sims snap pictures of their food, and it will allow chefs experiment with different dishes. Restaurant owners can hire employees, choose a menu, and much more, too. Clearly, restaurants can be diners, high-end bistros, chain-style franchises, and several other types of establishments with the options in “Dine Out.” According to the official site, The Sims 4 developers promise more details as the June 7 release date approaches.
“The Sims 4 Dine Out is full of new experiences, like experimental food, clumsy waiters, and so much more. But, we’re getting ahead of ourselves. We will dive deep into how the sausage is made in the very near future, so keep a close eye on our social channels and website to find out more in the coming weeks.”
Although “Dine Out” shares some similarities to the “Get to Work” expansion pack, neither pack requires the other. Players that only want to run a restaurant need only purchase “Dine Out” while those that want to run a retail store will need to pick up the “Get to Work” expansion pack. Of course, each pack for The Sims 4 comes with unique items and features not present in the game’s other packs. As seen on Origin Expansion packs contain the most content but are generally $40, game packs contain fewer items but still contain major features often for $20, and stuff packs usually add only items for $10. All packs for The Sims 4 go on sale usually alongside deep discounts on the base game as well. Players looking to get the most out of The Sims 4 will benefit from these frequent sales.
“Dine Out” is the first pack to release since “Romantic Garden Stuff” released in February. As the Inquisitr reported, “Romantic Garden Stuff” added several new buy and build mode objects perfect for creating an intimate outdoor setting. The highlight of which was the Whispering Wishing Well that lets Sims make wishes. Sometimes the well provides something positive to the wish maker and other times the well might curse a Sim with an unwanted outcome.
As stated, “Dine Out” will release on June 7 with a price point likely, although unconfirmed, to match other game packs at $20. As usual, it will require The Sims 4 base game to play. After “Dine Out,” fans of The Sims 4 also have another stuff pack to anticipate. After “Dine Out,” a new kid-friendly stuff pack is expected to release in the summer. A brief preview of the new stuff pack is seen on the official Twitter account for The Sims 4. Children are seen playing with new toys alongside new furniture and other objects in the GIF preview. The only release date for the upcoming stuff pack is a tentative summer release window.
