It would be an understatement to say that Will Wright is important to the gaming industry. While some games have fallen short of expectations, there’s no doubt that he’s one of the key figures pushing the industry forward in new and innovative ways.
With that being said, is was no surprise when The Sims 3 became another instant hit. As with previous iterations of the Sims series, another expansion pack is on its way.
This expansion, named The Sims 3 Ambitions, will be focusing on the careers of your virtual self. Shaking things up a bit, is the fact that you will be able to take on th life of a superhero. That’s right. You’ll be able to take your Sim to the streets to fight crime and save kittens from trees. You’ll also be able to follow your Sim to work at other jobs such as firefighting and as a paramedic, but ask yourself: Would you rather protect your town from evil, or sit in a cubicle on a computer? That’s what I thought.
Also on the superhero side of things, you will get the chance to experience parodies of famous superheroes such as Iron Man, The Fantastic Four, The Hulk, and Robin. While it has yet to be announced what their purpose will be, it’ll definitely be interesting to see some familiar faces, even if they’re Sim-ified versions of said familiar faces.
You can expect to pick up The Sims 3 Ambitions sometime in June, later this year.
Are you excited to see another expansion pack for The Sims 3? Do you feel that they may be milking the franchise a bit much with the amount of packs they release for each iteration?
