EA Announces World Adventures
Written at 20:37 by ChEeTaH - 1 comment.
Today EA has announced the first expansion for The Sims 3. Coming in the week of 16 November is World Adventures, in which Sims will leave Sunset Valley or Riverview to explore new grounds. The Sims' General Manager Scott Evans makes a big promise by saying it is one of the most robust expansion packs for the Sims series yet. Similar to Vacation (Sims 1) and Bon Voyage (Sims 2), there will be three locations to travel to: China, France and Egypt. Sims will be able to explore culture, chase down opportunities and search for treasure. The game will ship with 1,000 Simpoints for the Sims Store. In 2010 the game will also be released for iPhone and iPod Touch. Read on for the full press release, or check the pictures below by clicking the thumbnails.
