This new Sims 3 Ambitions press release doesn’t announce anything new. It’s pretty much a rewrite of things you’ve already seen and read – with the exception of two new screens that were just released.
But, when the release of the game is so freakin’ close, it’s hard to not be excited.
The Sims 3 Ambitions allows players to pursue a variety of exciting careers in their Sims’ lives that in turn affect their overall gameplay experience and neighborhood.
Players can choose to hunt down vengeful spirits as the ghost hunter, invent brilliant and potentially destructive gadgets as an inventor, craft glorious masterpieces as a sculptor, dole out experimental medicine as a doctor, save lives as a firefighter, and solve riveting cases by any means necessary as an investigator with dozens of cases to solve and numerous clues to find.
For the first time, players will be in charge of how their Sims’ career progresses and decide if they will work for good or evil, pursue creative endeavors or technical affairs, change the town for the better or wreak havoc on everyone’s homes. Choices made while playing the new careers and activities such as stylist, architecture designer and tattoo artist directly impact the look and feel of the town and other Sims.
For example, as a player you get to determine what a Sims new appearance will look like whether that be a hip makeover or a new tattoo fit for a rockstar. Additionally, players will be able to explore Twinbrook, an entirely new playable town in The Sims 3 Ambitions, where they will be able to meet new locals, explore their surroundings and find new employment opportunities.
I’m glad to have a new town to play and I’m always happy to have new pretty pictures to drool over.
Sims 3 Ambitions ships June 1st, 2010.
