Electronic Arts (EA) today announced the newest expansion pack for The Sims 3. The expansion pack, called Supernatural, will launch this September and customers who pre-order it will receive a Plants vs. Zombies content pack with zombie clothing and pea shooter zombie defense turrets. The Sims 3 Supernatural features supernatural beings such as vampires, werewolves, fairies, and witches. It also features spells, curses, potions, and other magical abilities.
“With a variety of deep and mysterious supernatural lifestyles to choose from, The Sims 3 Supernatural allows players to dive into powerful new gameplay that showcases a darker side of The Sims,” says Scott Evans, general manager of The Sims Studio. “This pack introduces a fresh perspective while maintaining the characteristic playfulness, humor and innovation of our studio. With The Sims 3 Supernatural, we are adding a wealth of rich creative possibilities, surprising new content and intriguing storylines to the world of The Sims 3.”
In addition to the supernatural Sims that can be created using the Create A Sim tool, there is an elixer that will turn unsuspecting Sims into Zombies, who will begin to attack the new town of Moonlight Falls. That’s right – you can start your own Sims 3 zombie apocalypse. The zombification elixir and other potions can be shared with other Sims 3 players.
Of course, a Sims 3 expansion wouldn’t be complete without new furniture. The Sims 3 Supernatural features gothic-style furnishings, magic mirrors, and sliding bookcases. However the content looks, it’s bound to be better than the Katy Perry version of The Sims 3.
