Another Pets Live Broadcast Announced, This Time From Gamecom

Sunday 14th August 2011 | 12:53 am UK time | Categories

Following on from the Hidden Springs live broadcast on Friday, EA has announced another one — this time with a bit more notice. On Saturday producer Graham Nardone will be at Gamescom and he’ll present an in-game demo of The Sims 3 Pets and answer some viewers’ questions, plus there’ll be “a never-been-seen surprise that you’ll definitely not want to miss”. The broadcast will also feature some stuff about the console versions but the PC expansion pack appears to be the focus. The times given are 1:30pm CET, 7:30am ET and 4:30am PT, which I think means it’ll take place at 12:30 pm BST. Go to the page linked below now and you can set up an email reminder.
