Sims 2 University Announced
EA will officially announce the first expansion pack for the Sims 2 tomorrow, althoug the press release is already available. As expected
, the pack will be titled "University". It's set to be shipped in March 2005. In the game, a new life stage for Sims will be introduced, called "Young Adult." These young adults can go to college where they follow one of 11 majors, and of course "join the campus crowd.
" After that they can earn money in 4 new career tracks, or the ten old ones of course. The university lifestyle will be mimicked in the Sims with dorms, parties and exams:
"In The Sims 2 University players for the first time will play through the new "young adult" life stage as their Sims head off to college and join the campus crowd. Whether they live in the dorms or rush a fraternity or sorority that's just the beginning... Sims can choose from one of 11 majors and by keeping their grades on track, they'll secure a final degree and open up 4 new career paths. Players will enjoy all-new college based wants and fears that are tied to their Sims' social life and academic goals which will lead to new rewards and powers that will help them achieve their goals and aspirations in college and beyond.
"Pranks, parties and college social interactions add to the excitement while your Sims explore campus locations such as college lounges, pool halls, gyms and coffee houses. As in real life, if your Sims start running low on funds, they can earn Simoleans by picking up a part time job, like tutoring, or engaging in riskier affairs like printing money as a member of the 'secret society.'"
