The Sims 3 has only been out for a couple months now (it seems) and already they’ve released information about the first Expansion pack called “World Adventures.”
Take your Sims on the adventure of their lives with The Sims 3 World Adventures. Guide your Sims to acclaimed fortune—or potential doom. Take your Sims to exotic destinations to hunt for hidden treasures. Uncover new skills, experience new personality traits and garner rewards, if your Sims succeed. Explore ancient tombs in the pyramids of Egypt, master martial arts in the Far East, and discover rich culture and famous landmarks of France. Adventure is on the horizon — what will your Sims discover?
I dunno … I’ve still got a sorta “Love / Hate” relationship with Sims 3 … On one side – I love the game because it’s easier to create “Legacy” families since you can only control one family at a time. The rest of the town are NPC’s (non-playable characters) who follow their own storylines (automatically) and even age on their own. I love the cemetery and the ghosts within (you can talk, hang out or even play football with the ghosts!) – you can even tour the local graveyard’s mausoleum! I love the careers (Evilness!) and I love the gardening and collecting. On the flip side – I hate that you can only control one family (what happens if I want Harry Potter Sim to marry Ginny Weasley Sim?) and you can’t add anything to the town. So, I can’t create a nice club for my Buffy-Sims to visit!
But – I can’t complain too much since I literally found my copy of The Sims 3 at a thrift store for $4.00 – I’m so not even kidding! So, what about you? Addicted to Sims 3 yet? Are you still playing Sims 2? Will you be buying “World Adventures” or waiting for the next expansion pack? (When will they add MAGIC!?)
In any case … World Adventures hits stores on November 17, 2009 and is available for pre-order now.
