Is The Sims 3 Seasons/Weather the Next Expansion?

in Sims 3 Expansions, Sims 3 Rumors

I talked about this a while back but, having played quite a bit with Pets, I have to bring this back up: Seasons/Weather.

I meant to get some video of what happens when the unicorn showed up but completely spaced on that so you’re going to have to deal with me describing it for you.

[Edited to add video I found of the unicorn.]

The unicorn that hangs around my sim’s place is this super cool black unicorn that seems like a bit of a prick–That’s funny because he’s a rude equine AND he has that horn between his eyes.–but the important part is that wherever dude goes, a rain shower follows him. The precipitation looks fabulous and as soon as I saw that…

The rain just looked so damn good!

And then there’s this:

The Sims 3 Pets Dog Weather Seasons Rumor

The Sims 3 Pets Horses Weather Seasons Rumor

The Sims 3 Pets Stray Weather Seasons Rumor

I figure I have some really depressed animals or they’re all thinking about a potential storm.

And don’t think for a second that any of this is an “accident” and that someone at EA managed to slip this all by the bosses and they’re sticking it “to the man” or whatever.

If an Easter egg like this popped up just once then I’d be inclined to think someone screwed up but this kind of thing has happened throughout the various expansions. I think the shots that cropped up of sims thinking about unicorns was the most recent one.

So is Season/Weather the next expansion? Would you be excited if it was?

I almost feel seasons should have been included in The Sims 3 just as part of the normal game. It’s a life simulator and life has rain and snow and all that jazz so shouldn’t the game?

I’m interested to see what they throw at us next. Seasons would be a welcomed addition if just for more normalcy, if you will, in the game. I always feel a bit funny when I put a sweater on one of my sims when the grass is bright green…
