'Into the Future' is an expansion for computer game 'The Sims 3' from Electronic Arts.
A new expansion has come out from Electronic Arts for computer game The Sims 3. Known as The Sims 3 Into the Future, this marks the first time that the The Sims franchise has broken through the space and time continuum to enter a new land to meet their descendants, play with technologies of tomorrow, and change the destiny of their entire world.
"Our fans have been asking to take their Sims to the future for quite some time and we're delivering that all-new experience with the world of Oasis Landing in The Sims 3 Into the Future," said Kari St. John, Senior Producer for The Sims 3 Into the Future. "Sims will eat, sleep, shower, and even WooHoo in new ways thanks to the advancements in future technology. With new creative tools like Create-A-Plumbot to customize unique Plumbots with traits of their very own and the ability to affect the outcome of the future based off the Sim's present day actions, we can't wait to see what kind of stories our fans will tell."
Set against the backdrop of the new world of Oasis Landing, the new expansion gives players an opportunity to discover new adventures when they travel back and forth between the future and present worlds. Leap far into the future to experience new technologies such as wind carvers, dream pods, food synthesizers and more. Along with the advanced future living, players will be able to customize and create Plumbots to help them raise kids, cook meals and more. In a first for the franchise, decisions made in the present world can alter the future of Oasis Landing and change a Sim's legacy. Blaze a trail towards Utopia and find a future filled with happy self-hugging Sims, or chart a Dystopian course and lead Oasis Landing into a state of desolation. EA says that players will get to uncover new stories when they leap forward in time with The Sims 3 Into the Future.
The Sims 3 Into the Future is rated T for Teen by the ESRB and is available today on PC/Mac at retailers in North America.
