The Sims 3: University Life

EA and Maxis have announced that The Sims 3: University Life expansion pack will be released March 5 for PC and Mac.

In what could be the most anticipated expansion since The Sims 3: Pets, The Sims 3: University Life is guaranteed to give Simmers (i.e. those who play The Sims) an entirely new way of simming.

In University Life, young Sims can now leave the comfort of their parents and experience the wild and unpredictable path of college. Much like real life, Sim college may not actually involve a lot of studying. Beyond boring books, lectures, and the stress of choosing a major, Sims will have new activities and opportunities to toss away their inhibitions and discover their true selves.

A new town includes new locations like SimBurger, Keith’s Komics, and a bowling alley where college Sims can get together and share last night’s stories. Sims can ditch their academic duties and party at a bonfire or decorate dorms with graffiti. Sims can party hop, traveling from dorm to dorm doing “juice keg” stands and experimenting with Sims of the same sex. Sims can choose new social groups to bond with: the nerds, the rebels, and the jocks. Depending on which social group joined, the Sim creates ever-lasting memories where certain benefits can be gained like acquiring dream jobs (art appraiser, sports agent, video game developer) or gaining an extra trait.

For the more academically attentive Sim, players can engage in educational social functions, organize or attend campus protests, and attend lectures. Sims who trade the party for the grade can reap major rewards after graduation. Educated Sims have better job opportunities and can climb the career ladder more easily, making the dream job a reality (video game developer!). Whatever Sims decide to do in college, young Sims would be wise to remember that their actions and decisions determine their futures.

Gamers who pre-order The Sims 3: University Life Limited Edition will receive the statue of Partaeus Maximus. This legendary statue enables Sims to throw epic parties. With the Partaeus Maximus gamers can gain fame regardless of the party theme they choose. The limited edition will include new clothes, accessories, and the ability to set the mood and theme of parties. From masquerades to pajama parties these blooming Sims are destined to be campus king with The Sims 3: University Life Limited Edition.
