Legacy challenges in Sims 4 are more than enough to raise the excitement quotient. This article takes you through 37 of the best and most popular (even though some of them are really hard to complete) legacy challenges that you must give a shot. The best part is that once you start with challenges, you’ll find it really hard to stop!
Sims 4 Legacy Challenges
One of the most basic aspects of a legacy challenge (and what sets them apart from other Sims 4 challenges)is that it runs through generations, 10 generations to be precise. In other words, one generation carries on the legacy to the next, and so on and so forth till it gets carried on to the 10th generation. To make things even more interesting, each generation is required to meet certain goals so that the sims can move on to the next generation. Even though such legacy challenges can be played with any sim, it is especially fun to play with the sims that have been created specifically for a set challenge. If you are a Sims lover, it is definitely worth checking out the best Sims 4 CC websites and Sims 4 Gameplay Mods.
Let’s delve a bit deeper and find out what these legacy challenges are…
