Another year, another Sims expansion pack. Yep, the Sims 3 Island Paradise is soon to set sail. With the most recent offering in the franchise releasing next week, The Sims Studio reveals today a never before seen trailer (see above) which details the myriad of tropical delights that awaits gamers in their new surroundings.
You can also tune into The Sims Live Broadcast tomorrow, June 18 at 10AM PDT featuring a live demo of the game’s interesting looking, innovative-t0-the-max underwater features. Visit www.thesims.com/live to watch.
The Sims 3 Island Paradise is currently available for pre-order and ‘drops anchor’ (ho hum…) in stores and for digital download on Origin.com on June 28 2013. We’re told that players who pre-order will receive a Limited Edition version, which comes complete with the ‘Island Survival Pack’ – a new set of content that equips your Sims with the necessities to scrape together an existence on a deserted island. Just like Lost, but without all the Smoke Monster bullshit.
In an interesting strategy, if 4,000 copies of The Sims 3 Island Paradise are ordered on Origin, everyone who pre-ordered before the twenty first of June will automatically receive The Sims 3 Barnacle Bay. Exciting stuff.
