A brand new expansion pack for The Sims 3 is available at retail stores from today, offering players the chance to achieve academic excellence, make new connections and part til they drop. The Sims 3: University Life promises to make learning more fun with new major objects from from broadcasting your own radio show as a Communications student to boning up on anatomy using the skeleton as a Science and Medicine major.
Text books and study groups are a big part of university, but sometimes Sims just need to party. From hosting bonfires by the lake to doing juice keg stands at a dorm party, there are lots of ways to have a great time at university. Sims can grow their social networking skill through texting, blogging, and streaming video. This builds your affiliation with the three social groups on campus-the nerds, the rebels, and the jocks. Building your cred with these groups offers unique advantages, from earning dream jobs to a coveted extra trait.
Just like in real life, your Sims’ decisions are deeply interconnected. For example, a Fine Arts student benefits from the Avant Garde trait, develops their Street Art skill and cred with the Rebels by tagging and spray painting; just don’t get caught by the cops.
The Sims 3: University Life is available at retail stores throughout the UK today, exclusively for PC, and requires the original The Sims 3 videogame to play. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest releases from The Sims videogame franchise.
