There’s a video circulating that shows The Sims 3: Unleashed–a supposed rumored, and much desired, Sims 3 expansion that appears to include: dogs, cats, fish, raccoons, horses and deer.
Unleashed is the title of the “pets” expansion for The Sims…the original game that came out way back when. Maybe you weren’t playing back then?
The original The Sims Unleashed:
I could be wrong on this, but I don’t see EA reusing “unleashed” for The Sims 3. They used “pets” for The Sims 2 version and since they had already used “nightlife” for The Sims 2, the similar–but much cooler–expansion for The Sims 3 is called Late Night. So based on consistent past behavior, I suspect they would come up with a new name even if this just a “beta” video as some have suggested.
Some have said the video is fake. Others say it’s only for consoles and some have argued the “WIN/MAC DVD-ROM SOFTWARE” in the bottom right of the video at the end of the video means the expansion will most definitely be coming to computers, as well…assuming the video is real.
Only EA knows what’s coming next but I can’t imagine them releasing another full-blown expansion right on the heels of Generations. I also can’t imagine them releasing something this big as a simple Stuff Pack. As always is the case with things like this, we’ll just have to wait and see.
I freakin’ hate waiting.
