The Maxis label of Electronic Arts Inc. announced yesterday that The Sims 3 Seasons Expansion Pack is coming to PC and Mac this November!
The Seasons Expansion Pack brings an all new Sims experience with all-new activities, seasonal festivals and celebrations, dramatic weather effects and much more. Players have the ability to interact with the weather and do other things that’s never been experienced before in The Sims franchise. Some of these things include the ability to take your Sim for a refreshing swim in the ocean on a hot summers day, carving pumpkins (Jack-o-Lanterns for those of you in the states), caching some air on a half pipe during a snowboard session, the possibilities are (almost) endless with the new Seasons Expansion Pack.
Your Sims can celebrate all of the best seasonal holidays you’d expect to come across throughout the year like Halloween, being crowned king or queen at the spring dance, and take part in an epic snowball fight in the snowball fight arena.
Not only does the expansion come with some great new features and interactions with the seasons, the game also comes with some new foods, fashions, and furniture. Get fat on French Fries, get yo’ tan on with a tanning booth, share a romantic kiss under some mistletoe, and head down to the beach in your swanky new wetsuit.
This Expansion is going to add an amazing dynamic to The Sims franchise. The weather effects have been thoroughly thought about to the finest detail such as, blooming flowers and fresh spring rain, to the leaves on the trees transforming to a golden brown as you’d expect during Autumn (Fall).
The Sims wouldn’t be The Sims without some sort of daft reaction from your Sim such as getting a hilarious stripy tan to getting struck by lightening.
Even better news though, according to the press release;
Players who pre-order** The Sims 3 SeasonsExpansion 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.
