EA Blogger’s Day event – Part 7Written by Michael Siebenaler | | firstname.lastname@example.org
The Sims3 World Adventures expansion
Associate Product Manager Azure Bowie guided this year’s Electronic Arts’ Blogger’s Day attendees through China, France and Egypt as TheSims3 expands with the first expansion pack in the new series, World Adventures. Traveling to these amazing lands depends on the visa level, which can eventually advance to having a vacation home in each area. Sims do not age in their travels except when they are inside their vacation home. New activities include nectar-making in Champs Les Sims, France; fireworks in Shang Simla, China and treasure hunting in Al Simhara, Egypt.
Many activities allow interaction with local Sims and tool use across different locations. On their adventures, Sims can choose from various activities including martial arts and photography where players can even sell their work and create their own profession. These activities incorporate difficulty levels while chaining together with other activities. For example, Sims can not defeat mummies until they learn martial art skills. Players can also encounter special, and sometimes dangerous challenges in their travels like avoiding curses. Sims can bring souvenirs home as well as unlock special options like a new basement building option. You can cash in as well with exclusive, extra content after registering this game plus 1,000 SimPoints for the The Sims 3 Store.
The Sims 3 World Adventures also features a musical set of “Simlish” songs performed by musicians including Nelly Furtado, LeAnn Rimes, Fefe Dobson, Pixie Lott, Matt + Kim, Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head and Evan Taubenfeld. The highly recommended The Sims 3 World Adventures will also be available on iPhone and iPod touch in early 2010 (PC/Mac, rated T for crude humor, violence and sexual themes).
