Not to be confused with Scenario (The Sims 2).

Scenarios are a feature that was added to The Sims 4 in patch 120. They consist of themed challenges that players can select from the main menu. After selecting a scenario, its description, requirements, and potential outcomes will be shown; and the player will be given the option to start the scenario in an existing save or in a new save.

Completing a scenario[]

The scenario screen in live mode, showing the potential outcomes.

When a scenario is chosen, the player is taken to Create a Sim to make (or download) a household that fulfills the requirements, and then move them into a lot. A window will be present at the top left of the screen as a reminder of the scenario, but the player is otherwise not forced to complete it. Completing one of the outcomes rewards each Sim in the household with 5,000 satisfaction points, which can be spent in the rewards store.
