The Maxis Label of Electronic Arts Inc. announced today that The Sims 3 SeasonsExpansion Pack for PC/Mac will launch worldwide in November of 2012. The latest offering from The Sims Studio introduces all-new activities, seasonal festivals and celebrations, dramatic weather effects and more to allow players to transform their Sims’ worlds with the change of each season as they play with life and Mother Nature.
This expansion pack not only boasts the opportunity to interact with the weather and take part in seasonal activities, but also gives the Sims ability to build skills through year-round activities like scoring a winning goal during a soccer shoot-out, working a half pipe during a snowboarding session, or even more simple tasks like carving a jack-o-lantern. More in-depth activities will be available along with seasonal festivities like being crowned king or queen of the spring dance, visiting face painting booths at the summer festival, bobbing for apples besides a pumpkin patch at a fall festival or charging into the snowball fighting arena for a wintertime battle.
The Sims 3: Seasons will also introduce new food, seasonal fashions and décor items like French fries, tanning booths, mistletoe, snow boots, umbrellas and wet suits to further enhance the experience for each season. Sims will react to the changes in climates in weather in all sorts of silly ways, like getting a zebra-striped tan, catching a bad cold or even getting struck by lightning.
Players pre-ordering The Sims 3: Seasons will also receive the limited edition version which includes the exclusive Ice Lounge community lot, a social club that can be placed anywhere in the Sims 3 world and is available in all seasons. This new venue will include 12 brand new objects made completely out of ice intended to elegantly compliment any icy residency.
The Sims 3 Seasons is rated “T” for Teen and is currently available for pre-order online and across retailers in North America. For more information, please visit the official website at www.thesims.com/seasons
