It’s Showtime for the Sims! New acrobatic screenshots

PC News Mac Simulation EA

Welcome to the Sims 3 Showtime, the sixth expansion pack for EA’s the Sims 3. As you would guess, Showtime is all about getting your Sims up on stage and performing for the masses, whether as a DJ, musician, singer or acrobat. Performance happy Sims will be able to jet off to the new neighborhood of Starlight Shores, which is packed with all sorts of clubs and venues to let Sims test out their new skills.

Will your Sim rise to fame or make an idiot of themselves? Let’s face it, it’ll probably be messy for a while.

EA have just release a couple of new screenshots for the acrobat performer path, showing off some of the different venues and tricks. Want to juggle fire whilst a harlequin bear looks on? Or how about balancing on a ball in an ice cream obsessed world? Now you, via your customised bundles of pixels, can do that. No doubt there will be plenty of chances for some Sim style disasters, and with the new social options in the pack, you can even post the evidence to a ‘social wall’ or send your Sims to another players game for a gig or two.

  1. The social thing sounds interesting, but overall I’m not impressed with this expansion pack.
    Though that seems to be the way the expansion packs for The Sims goes. The first two or so are awesome and add a lot of interesting gameplay to the core game, and then after that it goes downhill, until you are basically just getting item packs with some new interactions.

    At least I learned with the first Sims game not to buy every expansion pack. I wouldn’t be able to afford it anyway. No with the Sims 3 it’s the core game, Ambitions, and Pets for me, and that’s it. 🙂

  2. Very true. I haven’t got the Sims 3, but I remember the expansions for 2 being much the same – and it definitely was that thing where you had to learn not to buy them!

    What I always liked were the creatures that they added in, like the werewolves, zombies and vampires, I had a rather awesome x-files type house going on at one point! It was like a secret base for all things supernatural 😀  Does the third one have any of that?
