[Feature] Sims 3: Supernaturalby Daniel Ryan
The Maxis Label of Electronic Arts has announced that The Sims 3 Supernatural Expansion Pack for PC/Mac is in development and will launch worldwide in September 2012.
The latest offering from The Sims Studio allows players to create and live out the lives of supernatural Sims like werewolves, witches, vampires and fairies. Curse or charm your Sims’ lives with powerful spells, volatile elixirs and magical abilities in a world of strange happenings, spooky surprises and even the occasional zombie attack.
Players will enter the mysterious town of Moonlight Falls where strange things happen by the light of the moon. Create supernatural beings, from menacing werewolves and cackling witches to mischievous fairies and more intriguing vampires. Then stalk the night, use your wand to cast spells, just stay home to claw the furniture or drop pixie dust on the rug.
Those who pre-order The Sims 3 Supernatural will receive a special Limited Edition version, which features the exclusive Plants vs. Zombies content pack. Dress your Sim in a classic zombie outfit for a night of mischief and mayhem, or add a unique plant to your garden to keep out unwanted guests.
“With a variety of deep and mysterious supernatural lifestyles to choose from, The Sims 3 Supernatural allows players to dive into powerful new gameplay that showcases a darker side of The Sims,” says Scott Evans, General Manager of The Sims Studio. “This pack introduces a fresh perspective while maintaining the characteristic playfulness, humor and innovation of our studio. With The Sims 3 Supernatural, we are adding a wealth of rich creative possibilities, surprising new content and intriguing storylines to the world of The Sims 3.”
Play as supernatural Sims: Create witches, werewolves, fairies and more intriguing vampires with the Create A Sim tool, each with their own magical abilities, traits and interactions. Customize characteristics that range from the hairiness of a werewolf’s body to the shape of a fairy’s wings. While playing as supernatural Sims, players will discover new abilities, traits, skills and interactions that enhance their gameplay, including delayed aging for fairies and vampires, innate magic channeling for witches, and lycanthropy for werewolves, which enables them to control their animal instincts and transform at will.
