EA Announces Plans For The Sims Vacation

Brace Yourselves! The Sims are Going on Vacation!

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.–(ENTERTAINMENT WIRE)–Jan. 10, 2002. Electronic Arts (Nasdaq:ERTS) today announced plans to release this spring The Sims(TM) Vacation, a new add-on disk to the top-selling PC game of 2000 & 2001, The Sims(TM). The Sims and their families have been in overdrive with all the bustle of the holidays and the magic of Livin’ Large, the parties of House Party and the social obligations of Hot Date. They need a break and The Sims Vacation provides the perfect opportunity to give them a little rest and relaxation on a fun-filled vacation island!

“The Sims Hot Date allowed you to take an individual Sim out of the house and on a downtown rendezvous,” said Tim LeTourneau, producer at EA’s Maxis(TM) studio. “With The Sims Vacation, you can take your whole Sim household to a fabulous island for a Sims-style holiday.”

Players can help their Sims escape the grind of their everyday lives by sending them to this new and fully customizable island destination that offers a snowy alpine setting, a Riviera-style beach and a forest campground. Beach volleyball, snowboarding, fishing or hunting for hidden treasure are just a few of the things that Sims can do at this unique resort location. All-new social interactions and over 120 new objects will have Sim vacationers entertained from dusk until dawn.

A comical cast of characters is available to cater to the Sims during their island-getaway. The wacky resort staff is there day and night to see to the Sims every need. A troupe of costumed performers is also on hand to entertain the kids. But beware of the Pickpocket, who may relieve them of some of their vacation cash. Errant children or a pilfered purse can bring a premature end to the Sims’ island stay.

A Sim vacation would not be complete without that special dust-collector to remind them of the whole experience. Souvenirs of all types can be bought, caught, won and collected. Sims can buy a coconut monkey in one of the gift shops, win a stuffed penguin at a carnival game, collect arrowheads and lava idols or catch an aggravating case of poison ivy or Montezuma’s revenge. The Sims will have the time of their lives with The Sims Vacation.

EA Announces Plans For The Sims Unleashed

Brace Yourselves! The Sims Have Pets!

Electronic Arts (Nasdaq:ERTS) today announced plans to release this September The Sims(TM) Unleashed, a new add-on disk to the top-selling PC game of all time, The Sims(TM). As fans of The Sims know, there has always been something missing from their virtual neighborhoods … pets. In The Sims Unleashed, players can now add furry friends to their Sims’ families. An all new expanded neighborhood featuring parks, pet stores, cafes and markets will give the Sims and their new pets a variety of places to sniff, explore and meet their new neighbors.

“Just when players thought they had housebroken their Sims, now they have pets to contend with,” said Jonathan Knight, Producer at EA’s Maxis(TM) studio. “Pets are something that the fans of The Sims have wanted since the original Sims was released and Unleashed will deliver in spay-eds!”

For the first time ever, the Sims can visit a pet store and bring home a variety of creatures and accoutrements. Players will make a big splash with the addition of a lumbering Labrador or fickle feline to their Sim family. They can also buy a parrot, turtle, lizard or fish that are fun for the whole family but don’t need to be house trained.

The Sims Unleashed gives players dozens of new social interactions and expands their neighborhood. Thirty all-new residential and community lots featuring new homes, lush parks, a hip new cafe, cool shops and a farmer’s market are available for Sims to explore. Now the Sims can walk their pooch in the park or bring their cat to a cafe and build their relationships with their neighbors through their adorable animals.

Your Sims can teach Fido where to go themselves or hire an efficient Pet Trainer to do all of the dirty work. Sims can also enter their kitties and canines in the local Pet show. The competition is “dog eat dog,” as Sim pets try to impress the Pet Judges for prizes in obedience, tricks and good pet mood.

Also new to The Sims Unleashed is gardening. Your Sims can now grow a variety of vegetables in their own backyard plots using seeds purchased at the local garden store. Proper care of the garden will yield a crop that can be picked and stored in the new kitchen pantry or sold at the local farmer’s market. Your new pets will also come in handy as they help chase away the pesky rabbits, gophers, and mice. Don’t be surprised if they aren’t the only unwelcome animals that come a callin’.

The Sims Unleashed expansion pack adds 5 new career paths with 50 new and exciting jobs. Sims can enter the exciting world of fashion, become a culinary genius, take care of the neighborhood’s pets as a trustworthy veterinarian, teach others as a noble educator, or simply run away and join the circus. Over 125 new objects for pets and people, dozens of new character skins and an all-new decorator set with a New Orleans French Quarter theme round out this new Sim offering. The Sims Unleashed is truly the cat’s meow!
