New The Sims 3 Game Update Adds Social Features

You may be more annoyed than excited about them, but regardless, The Sims 3’s new social features are here. The latest update has been released, and here’s what it does:

This game update includes the following changes: Exciting new connected features which allow you to:

  • Post and view messages from your friends while playing, without having to leave or even pause the game.
  • Find new friends and add them to your friends list.
  • Access your Player Profile and Wall from the Options Menu
    • Receive status updates from your friends about their game, and comment!
    • Achievements—view the badges you’ve earned for those you’ve completed, sort and view those you have yet to complete, and find new achievements, which will be introduced to your game regularly!
    • Edit and view your Player Profile, including your avatar, My Story, and wall posts all about you!
    • Get all of the latest and exciting news from The Sims 3!
  • You can now specify what outfit your Sim will wear to work by using a dresser.
  • When a Service NPC joins the family, their special service outfit is added to the wardrobe.

That’s it, so if you were hoping a bug would be fixed, it looks like you’re out of luck. You can get the update through the game launcher, but don’t forget to follow that all-important checklist first — find it at the bottom of the page linked below (if the link doesn’t work, you’ll need to change to English > United States using the Select Language link at the bottom):
