The Sims 4: Growing Together is the thirteenth expansion pack for The Sims 4. It was leaked on February 1, 2023[1] and was officially announced on February 2, 2023. The pack was released on March 16, 2023 on all platforms. It can be considered a spiritual successor to The Sims 2: Family Fun Stuff and The Sims 3: Generations, with its focus on family, childhood and intergenerational activities. It includes a new urban world called San Sequoia which is based on the San Francisco Bay Area.

Official description[]

Settle in San Sequoia, a bustling town with historic roots, and live a rich family life full of sleepovers, drama, and self-discovery. Let your parents move in with you - or don't - and see how that affects your relationships. Navigate a midlife crisis and come out with new personality traits. Meet a stranger and have instant chemistry - or instant friction. There's a lot to experience, together.

A Lasting Impact – Key choices and milestones will help to shape who your Sims are. Unlock and change personality traits throughout your Sims’ lives as they cope with midlife crises, respond to family requests to move in, and more. Self-discovery is a lifelong journey.

Social Dynamics – Sometimes Sims just click. Your Sim might have natural social chemistry with a Sim they meet at a party – or they might naturally clash. Your Sim will now have preferences that determine which Sims they are socially compatible with, and which Sims are more likely to become their enemies.

Family Ties – The bonds between your related Sims are important and complex. As they experience life together there will be opportunities for both drama and unity that will affect family dynamics and Sims’ relationships with their family members.

Perfect for Families – Located along an ocean bay, San Sequoia was once a small fishing village and has grown into a bustling town. It features quiet suburbs, a lively rec center, a tight-knit community, and even an influential local family – the Robleses.
