Two new Sims 3 expansions on the way

Sims 3 bannerUh oh.  Don’t tell Jen, but… soon, there will be new opportunities to sink even more money into Sims 3.  Two new expansion packs will allow you to take your Sims to the movies, and into the future.  Read on for the details.  Unless you’re Jen, in which case… don’t.  It’s too dangerous.

The first expansion pack, simply titled Movie Stuff, allows you to turn your Sim’s world into something out of a classic film.  Three genres will be available, including western, horror, and superhero.  Custom clothing, furnishings, and decor will be available, although I’m not sure what constitutes horror furnishings.  Are we talking lamp shades made out of human skin?  If so, I might have to pass.  Thankfully, nothing that horrific is on display in the trailer, which you can check out below.

The second expansion is entitled Into the Future, and pretty much does exactly what it says.  You’ll be able to send your Sim far into the future, and experience technological wonders like hovercars, jetpacks, and build-your-own robot kits.  You’ll even be able to jump between the present and the future, and see how your actions affect future generations.

It’s unconfirmed whether you’ll be able to steal a sports almanac from the future, bring it back to the past, and become a casino tycoon.  But I’m betting you can.

Movie Stuff will be out September 13, with Into the Future following on October 25.

Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
