The Sims 3 Showtime Announced

Posted on December 6, 2011 AT 09:33am

THE BUZZ: EA has announced the latest expansion pack for The Sims 3, known as Showtime.

The expansion introduces new social features to the game such as news feeds and live updates, and allows Sims to live the dream on Starlight Shores as a singer, acrobat, magician or DJ. The expansion is due out in March 2012 and adds the following features:

  • Rise to Stardom: Venture into a new world and live the dream as a singer, acrobat, magician and DJ. Watch your Sims’ rise to fame – or go down in flames as they perform for other Sims.
  • Create New Sims: New traits and Lifetime Wishes give players more tools to tell their stories the way they want to.
  • A Whole New World: The new expansion pack includes a brand new world called Starlight Shores, with new venues and new objects to hone Sims’ talent and aid their rise to success.
  • Rise to Fame: Build your own custom stages and see your Sims perform in sold-out arenas and in front of packed crowds.
  • Book or Host Gigs: Using the innovative SimPort feature, send your Sims to a friend’s game or book a friend’s Sims for a gig in your game.
  • Be Connected: Make new friends, connect, and share your stories and experiences without ever leaving the game. Using the new in-game news feeds and live updates, post your Sims’ successes, share gameplay techniques, create wishlists and send gifts, search for new friends and share memories.
  • New Achievement System: Each rewards for achieving goals and accomplishing special challenges that can be tracked and shared by in-game social wall posts. New achievements will be introduced on a regular basis.

EGM’s TAKE: In case you Sims players were getting board of the virtual life EA has dropped a bit of Jersey Shore into the mix.
