Even though EA just released the much sought after Seasons less than two months ago, they got 5 new add-ons (3 expansion packs and 2 stuff packs) coming throughout the next twelve months. This month will see the release of 70, 80s, and 90s Stuff, a stuff pack that will add outfits, hairstyles, and objects inspired by….you guessed it, the 70s, 80s, and 90s. This March, EA will bring us University Life, another much-requested expansion pack. From young adult to elder, Sims can enroll in a higher learning institute, pick one of several majors, and earn a career boost after graduation. They can also join one of three different groups; Nerds, Jocks, and Rebels (no foreign exchange students, goths, or ethnic identity clubs?). While not much more info about the game has been released, as you can see in the trailer above, Sims can engage in beer pong, paint graffiti, participate in student protests, pose naked for paintings, and a bunch of other fun stuff. The game will feature a new city with a comic book shop and a coffeehouse. This game is going to recreate my college experience to a T.

If you would rather take your dream cruise instead, EA has you covered too. In June, EA will release Sims 3 – Island Paradise. This expansion will see players take control of their own fully customizable houseboat. They can also create and manage their own resort, and even learn the new scuba diving skill. This pack will be followed up by an unnamed stuff pack which features clothing and furnishings inspired by classic movies, along with an untitled expansion pack which promises to take Sims into the future.

Hard to believe that this game came out almost 4 years ago and I’ve been putting in work consistently ever since. It’s even more surprising that EA still continues to support it. Then again, this is EA we’re talking about. They’ll take every opportunity they can to make a buck off their fans. Oh well, as long as they continue to put out good product, I’ll happily fork over my hard-earned dollar.
