In The Sims 4, you can do whatever you want, but it’s normal to run out of ideas and fall into a virtual routine. To enhance the game experience, there are various challenges that you can do to have fun and experience a different side of the game.
The community of this game is quite active, and thanks to this, many people have created challenges to enrich this life simulator. So, without further ado, get to know the 12 most fun challenges to complete in The Sims 4!
1. Legacy Challenge
