The Sims 3

The Sims 3

The Sims 3 is an upcoming social simulation game for Microsoft Windows. It is the sequel to the highly popular and critically acclaimed The Sims and The Sims 2 computer games. The game is due to be released on February 20, 2009; a collector’s edition will also be available.

Teasers and previews

In the 7th expansion pack for The Sims 2, The Sims 2: FreeTime, an event occurs in which a Sim-version of Rod Humble, The Sims 3‘s executive producer, gives the player’s Sim family an unopened gift box. When opened, the family gets a computer with The Sims 3 on it. The Sims 3 game cannot be bought in the catalog. Sims can then play The Sims 3 on their computers or console systems. Like all the other games that Sims can play in The Sims 2, The Sims 3 is a looping game play video shown on the player’s Sim’s computer screens when played by a Sim.

Sims at work

The game will also incorporate further aspects of real life, including several new jobs. Some available careers are politics, criminal, military, science, chef, and entertainment. Each career has a workplace building in the neighborhood, which Sims travel to for their shifts. Sims can also apply for jobs with these buildings. Though Sims are hidden inside buildings during the workday, the player can control their behavior at work to a certain extent. Like previous Sims games, the job yields “opportunities” – tasks that could be finished for a reward. There are also part-time jobs. Sims can also take actions to increase their productivity while not at work, such as bringing work home or working overtime.
