It looks like Barnacle Bay, the town made available to purchase from The Sims 3 Store, will soon be available at retail too – at least in the US. Both and GameStop have listings for it, priced at $19.99 with a release date of 8th March. The description on suggests you get some additional items included:

The Sims 3 Outdoor Living Stuff screenshotAfter playing “unlock the photo” with its Facebook followers (in which a ridiculous number of people (in this case 7000) have to “like” an incomplete photo before they’ll post the whole thing), EA has posted the first screenshot of The Sims 3 Outdoor Living Stuff. It shows someone painting, and another three Sims relaxing, two of them together. Click below to view it.
