EA Releases Some Supernatural Werewolf Details, Plus New Screenshots

EA has released some details on the werewolves in The Sims 3 Supernatural, which El33tonline has passed on:

“In this game, werewolves embody strength, passion and unbridled emotion, combining human tenderness with beastly power and a heavy dash of unpredictability. In The Sims 3 Supernatural, you can live as werewolf Sims, striving to balance a life of relative normality with the dramatic effects of the werewolf’s curse.

They’ve also released four more screenshots of werewolves, which you can see in El33tonline’s article, but there’s also larger versions on my game page (updates of Wednesday 20th June 2012 and Monday 18th June 2012).

IGN Focuses On Werewolves In First Supernatural Preview

IGN has posted the first The Sims 3 Supernatural preview, focusing on werewolves:

As you might expect, lycanthropy-cursed Sims have to watch out when it comes to their relationships. Transformation occurs whenever a full moon rises, but can also sneak up on you and occur at inopportune times if your Sim’s mood ever gets too low. Unlike the full moon transformation, though, the mood-based switch lasts for a tunable duration, which you can affect as you build up your Lycanthropy Skill.
