English Description For Next Expansion Pack Found On Swedish Retailer Website

Tuesday 5th April 2011 | 12:57 am UK time | Categories

In advance of the reveal expected later today what appears to be the description of the next The Sims 3 expansion pack has been found on the website of a Swedish retailer (in English, oddly). Fitting in with previous sightings, the description refers to the expansion as “Generations”:

Experience the complicated realities of adult life, then reap the benefits of growing up in each life stage. A wealth of new options and activities makes your Sims’ lives more meaningful than ever before, whatever their ages. With new celebrations, dramatic life events, and all-new ways for your Sims to express their creativity, The Sims 3 Generations lets your Sims live life to the fullest!

Is This The Next Expansion Pack?

Saturday 2nd April 2011 | 12:55 pm UK time | Categories

EA has posted a mysterious new screenshot on the The Sims 3 Facebook page. It appears to be a game show setup with three items behind curtains: a spiral staircase, a pram and a medieval-style bunk bed, none of which are currently in the game – is this a teaser for the next expansion pack? They don’t give much away in the caption (they just ask us to come up with our own captions for it), so I suppose we’ll just have to wait and see. They’re also teasing a “super secret surprise” on Tuesday, which is expected to be the announcement of the next expansion pack.

“Even Bigger News” To Be Announced Next Tuesday

Monday 28th March 2011 | 9:34 pm UK time | Categories

EA has edited the previously reported on Facebook event, changing the date from 31st March (Thursday) to 5th April (next Tuesday). The “more info” reads:

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.

So what will the announcements be? The previously leaked “Generations” expansion on Thursday followed by the also-previously-leaked “Unleashed” expansion (and console game) next Tuesday? I suppose we’ll find out then.

Next Expansion Pack To Be Announced Next Thursday?

Wednesday 23rd March 2011 | 2:26 pm UK time | Categories

EA may finally announce the next expansion pack in just over a week, if an event on Facebook is anything to go by. The Sims 3 on Facebook has created an event called “Super Secret Surprise!”, set to take place on 31st March between 11 am and 11:30 pm (their office time, presumably). The “more info” doesn’t give much away:

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?

I suppose we’ll find out then, won’t we?
