Latest News

The trailer for another expansion pack is leaked, a parody of Charlie Sheen is posted and a big announcement is teased

“The Sims 3 Unleashed” Trailer Leaked

The first expansion pack of this year hasn’t been announced yet (though its name has been spotted), but already About.com has found what appears to be the trailer for the second – “The Sims 3 Unleashed”. It looks to be the long-awaited-by-some pets expansion, but adds more than just dogs and cats. There’s also fish, deer, skunks, and ridable horses, with all but the deer and skunks shown to have traits (presumably the deer and skunks are wild). The trailer doesn’t confirm for sure that it is an expansion pack, only specifying that it will be released on Xbox 360, PS3, Nintendo 3DS and PC/Mac. It does specify that it will be available in October 2011. Unless it’s finally been removed, you can watch the trailer here:

If it has been removed, you might want to read About.com’s write up of it:

If EA are already preparing to announce this (next Tuesday, perhaps? See further down), it must be because it’s coming to the other platforms as well, because I don’t remember them ever announcing an expansion pack this early before – unless they’re just fed up of people asking when there’s going to be a pets expansion. They could have even leaked the trailer on purpose…

New The Sims 3 Video Parodies Charlie Sheen

EA has released their first The Sims 3 parody video in a while, this one featuring Charlie Sheen – see how he is “WINNING” below:

Next Expansion Pack To Have Been Announced By Next Tuesday?

EA may have finally announced the next expansion pack by this time next week, if an event on Facebook is anything to go by. The Sims 3 on Facebook has created an event called “Super Secret Surprise! x2”, set to take place on 5th April between 11 am and 11:30 pm (their office time, presumably). The “more info” doesn’t give much away:

The date has been changed! We have upgraded this Super Secret Surprise event to "Super Secret Surprise! x2" because we have even bigger news to announce! We will still share something on March 31st, but look forward to the new date. :)

Come to the official The Sims 3 Facebook's fan page to hear about our big surprise! Trust us, it's something BIG and you'll definitely want to be here to be one of the first to hear the news. Any ideas what it might be?

As it says, the event was first posted as taking place on 31st March and subsequently changed. So what will the announcements be? The previously leaked “Generations” expansion on Thursday followed by the also-previously-leaked (see further up) “Unleashed” expansion (and console game) next Tuesday? I suppose we’ll find out then.
