The Sims 3 Product Details
Released on 12/11/2010
Create Sims with unique personalities, fulfill their desires, and control their lives within a living neighborhood that you can customize, including designing the ultimate beach getaway. Unlock all-new Karma Powers and unleash them on your Sims: help your Sim get lucky with the power of “love connector”, bless them with the power of “age defier” or curse them with an “alien abduction.” Use these powers wisely, because they may have unexpected results! As you guide your Sims through life, you can complete challenges to unlock additional items, new buildings and landmarks. For the first time ever, share the fun with a friend in the co-op buddy mode or take on up to three friends in the Life Moments Game.
Exclusive to the Wii version, players will be able to enjoy an all-new beach town with unique residents, traits, careers and lifetime wishes. For the first time ever, players can enjoy The Sims 3 with friends by going head to head in the new “Life Moments” game to earn rewards. Finally, players will also enjoy several adventure quests, as the game will challenge them to explore their town and discover the secrets therein.
- Create any Sim you can imagine and give them unique personalities! Fine-tune your Sims’ appearances and personalities. Make them evil, romantic, paranoid, kleptomaniacs, or a mix of something completely different.
- Control your Sims’ destinies. Choose whether or not to fulfill your Sims’ destinies by making their wishes come true—or letting their dreams die. Will your Sims be rock stars, world leaders, or expert thieves? It’s up to you.
- Unlock all-new Karma Powers. Wield the ultimate power over your Sims, controlling weather, the Grim Reaper and more!
- Play The Sims with friends! Get a friend in on the action in the all-new co-op mode. A second player can join the fun as a gnome who can help—or hinder—your Sims. You can also play the new Life Moments Game with up to four players. Bet on life’s most important moments to earn points and garner rewards.
- New Content! Enjoy an all new beach town with new residents, traits, careers, weather, and lifetime wishes exclusive for the Wii.
EA has announced that its best-selling Sims series will be returning to consoles this autumn as The Sims 3 heads to the DS, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360.
It looks like the lifestyle simulator will be tailored for each specific platform, too. The DS version, for example, will recreate the core Sims experience, according to Eurogamer, allowing players to use the stylus to customise everything from house interiors to the Sims themselves.
The Wii version, however, will be set in a new beach town filled with new locations to explore and characters to meet, while the PS3 and Xbox 360 instalments include new Karma Powers that bestow Sims with special gifts and character attributes. Expect to be able to create and share things with other players over Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network, and EA has also suggested that there will be Facebook integration of some kind.
When The Sims 3 appeared on PC last summer, it added seamless neighbourhoods and new levels of character detail and went on to become one of the best-selling PC games of the year.
EA has yet to pin down a specific release date for the console versions, but we'll keep you posted.
Fans of The Sims 3 can expand their experience from this week with the launch of the new Hidden Springs downloadable content pack.
The newest add-on for EA's phenomenally popular lifestyle simulation adds a luxurious new resort town area to the PC game, offering a place for Sims to relax while surrounded by scenic mountains and an expansive lake.
Sim characters can unwind at the Fairyfolk Park, investigate ancient mysteries at the Museum of Magic and the Supernatural or track down exclusive new items such as the Fountain of Youth.
Gamers can also improve their Sims' social standing by visiting locales like the Crystal Solarium Pool and the Redwood Heights Luxury Lodge, where they can get to know the elite Vanderburg family.
Since debuting in 2009, The Sims 3 has proven to be one of the most popular PC titles of recent years, selling more than five million copies.
A new add-on pack is being launched for The Sims 3 that will give players greater choice when it comes to creating their dream property.
The Sims 3: Master Suite Stuff will add a host of new items for players to customise their homes and characters, with new bathroom and master bedroom furnishing plus an array of romantic intimate wear for Sims.
Players will have the chance to pick up a new four-post canopied bed, a contemporary vanity and set and a new lavish hot tub.
Set to hit the shelves in January 2012, the add-on will add further depth to the already bulging title.
The Sims franchise celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2010, with more than 15 million units of the game's many titles sold over the decade.
One of the most popular games of the last two years, The Sims 3 alone has sold more than five million copies since its launch in 2009.
Sim City, Will Wright's classic city building game will be getting a long overdue new edition in 2013 according to German games mag, GameStar.
The magazine quotes Maxis developer Lucy Bradshaw as saying that the fifth game in the series is already in development, but that work on other Maxis titles such as Spore and The Sims has kept it under the radar.
The game will reportedly use a new graphics engine known as GlassBox. This would explain why EA and Maxis are holding a special seminar at the Game Developer's Conference in San Francisco next week, entitled Inside the Glassbox, to debut a system �uilt from the ground up to power the next entry in one of [EA's] most beloved franchises.�/p>
Sim City 5 will apparently feature multiplayer modes, buildings that can be updated and non-linear roads.
A fourth entry in EA's top-selling Sims saga will release in 2014, it has been confirmed. The game will release in 2014 for PC and Mac. No console versions have been announced, but The Sims 3 soon found its way to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
The game follows hot on the heels of the rebooted and always-online multiplayer Sim City, but while hinting at social sharing features, EA notably refers to The Sims 4 as a "single-player offline experience". The Sims 3 introduced connected suburbs and a shared online world where you and your friends could overlap your Sim towns. What else could be added for a fourth game? For now, EA isn't telling.
"The Sims 4 celebrates the heart and soul of the Sims themselves, giving players a deeper connection with the most expressive, surprising and charming Sims ever," reads EA's announcement. "The Sims 4 encourages players to personalise their world with new and intuitive tools while offering them the ability to effortlessly share their creativity with friends and fans."
Present for the announcement were specially selected Sims fans, drawn from the game's community. Not only did these Sims ambassadors get to hear the news first, but they'll be given "special access" to the development team over the next year.
