New expansion pack sees Sims react to the weather

EA announces The Sims 3 Seasons

The latest Sims expansion pack features seasonal festivals, new activities and dramatic weather effects.

Just when you thought your Sims had everything, EA gives you the ocean the play around in. For the first time ever in the Sims franchise, plays can stick their characters in a rubber dingy and have a splash about in the sea.

It’s not just the summer we’re treated to in the latest expansion pack, Sims can catch some air on the half pipe during a snowboarding session, set off fireworks, and carve a jack-o’-lantern.

As seasons change, players will see their Sims react to the climate, whether getting a zebra-striped tan, catching a cold or getting struck by lightning.

The Sims 3 Seasons offers players not only the opportunity to interact with weather, but also the ability to really get into the mood of each season and tell meaningful stories with their Sims,” said Ryan Vaughan, The Sims producer.

“Since the launch of The Sims 3, Seasons has been one of the most highly-requested themes by our players. The seasonal changes in this game offer incredible realism, simulating nature in a way that is unprecedented for The Sims.”

Players who pre-order The Sims 3 Seasons Expansion Pack will receive the Limited Edition which includes the exclusive Ice Lounge community lot, a sleek social club that can be placed in any world from The Sims 3 and is available in all seasons. This all-new venue includes 12 brand new objects made entirely of ice that can be used to build out an elegant, icy abode.

The Sims 3 Seasons Expansion Pack is due for release in November, visit the official website for more information.
