Now, if you’re thinking, “Sure, we knew we could become vampires, all the way back in the Sims 2, –this is old news!” you’re dead wrong, so to speak. The new vampire stuff in Sims 3 is off the fang. The game has added a whole new vampire clubbing culture. The Sims 3 Late Night Expansion Pack has more for vampires in the Sims world than ever before, and combined with the innovative and streamlined graphics of the Sims 3, it’s sure to be deadly fun.
Kotaku reports on the Sims 3’s new expansion pack:
“The Sims 3 expands this fall with The Sims 3 Late Night Expansion pack, plunging your Sim into the active downtown nightlife, or letting them explore their darkest fantasies as a Sim vampire.
That’s right, Sim vampires. According to EA Play’s Rod Humble, speaking at the EA Studio Showcase today, the supernatural mods for The Sims franchise have always attracted a lot of attention from fans, so the next expansion features an entire vampire culture system, with all the rusted bells and low, eerie whistles.
But what if you abhor the undead, like a normal person? There’s still plenty for your Sim to do late at night.
“The community has been very vocal about unleashing their Sims in more interesting and unpredictable social situations,” said Scott Evans, General Manager of The Sims Studio at EA. “The Sims 3 Late Night is full of ways to approach a rich, new life beyond a Sims’ normal day, such as schmoozing with celebrities on the rooftop of a skyscraper, wooing the crowd with your Sim’s band, or being the best bartender in town at the hottest new lounge.”
Finally, a chance for me to get denied entry to the hottest clubs without having to leave the comfort of my home! If you need me, I’ll be hanging out at the Sim dive bar. The people are nicer there anyway.
The Sims 3 Late Night Expansion is due out for the PC this fall.”
Sounds exciting, kids: now you don’t have to switch over to Sims 2 just to play a vampire, –or worse, hook up your game console, for some ancient vampire action, since you know, it’s not like they’re making any awesome vampire games anyway. Which, I’d like to say, sucks hardcore, and not in the good way. So for the time being, we can play around with Sims vampires, –harass the living, go clubbing, drink the blood of innocents, you know, old fashioned fun, –while we wait for a decent horror vampire game to come out.
