Well first off there's 70s, 80s, 90s that came out the 22 of January I believe. Next is
University Life in March 5. Who else is excited for it?
Love it, hate it, want one, avoid one, but everyone’s got one — a social life that is.
While making the grade is important, The Sims 3 University Life experience is about more
than just what you learn in the classroom! It’s about the life your Sim leads outside
it. Your Sim can pursue any social life they dream of – from the most popular Sim on
campus or the nerdy bookworm that lives in the library. No matter if your Sim is a little
socially awkward or completely irresistible they can have a fun and memorable university
Introduced in The Sims 3 University Life are three new social groups: the Jocks, Rebels
and Nerds. Your Sim can gain influence with as many of these groups they desire – they
are not limited to befriending just one! As your Sim progresses up the social ladder
within each group, they will unlock rewards that will make all the effort on their part
But what are the social groups like? Let me tell you…
Jocks are the Sims who play to win, whether it’s a popularity contest or a match on the
Plink Plonk Tennis Table. It’s no wonder that Jocks tend to hang out at B’s Bowlarama
where they can work on getting strikes and not striking out with the cute Sim eying their
sweet bowling moves. Probably not a surprise either that Jocks throw some of the best
parties on campus.
Rebels enjoy going above and beyond the expected and then taking it one step further.
Rebels are the Sims who will tag a wall on campus and then add herbs to the bonfire at a
local party. You can find Rebels hanging out at The Grotto; a cool place where a Sim can
enjoy a game of pool, work on their artistic skills, or savor an organic brew from the
And last, but definitely not least, are the Nerds. Nerds love to play video games, perform
research, win trivia challenges, and aren’t afraid to berate other Sims for their
ignorance. Keith’s Komics is the ideal hangout for a Nerd as it has all the lots of
hobbies for Nerds to enjoy including, computers, arcade machines and comics, of course!
Keeping up with all the social influence your Sim gains is simple! With a few clicks on
their new smart phone they’ll be completely in the know. Just hit ‘Check Social
Groups’ to see their current status. But that isn’t the only cool thing the smart
phone can do. Maybe your Sim is feeling bold and flirty, then sending a secret admirer
text might just catch that special someone’s attention.
Alternately, if another Sim has treated you poorly and you want to give them a piece of
your mind then go ahead and send them an insulting text. Also if you Sim is looking to cut
loose and be single, they can send a break up text to their romantic interest.
Additionally, if your Sim is more visual then they might appreciate the new ways to take
photos. Now your Sim can take self-portrait snapshots with another Sim, and can even sneak
in a romantic kissy photo. These are just a few examples of what your new smart phone can
Even outside of the social groups there are a huge variety of social activities and
interactions your Sim can partake in. For example, what would university be without
parties!? To spice things up, we’ve added two new party types in the mix: Juice Keggers
Parties are a great time to meet new Sims, and if there is a Sim you want to get a little
closer to, then go ahead and give them a Heat of the Moment Kiss. There are plenty of
other new kiss interactions as well, such as Juiced Kiss and Cinnamon Kiss. These only
scratch the surface of the new romantic options that are available in The Sims 3
If your Sim isn’t into partying, then there are still plenty of other activities to do.
From playing a collegiate sport to posing nude for figure class to becoming a medical test
subject and holding a protest, your Sims will find an all-new world to explore! There are
also great new social things to do that will contribute to building skills as well. With
the new sketchbook object you can ask another Sim to pose for you (even pose nude)! Plus,
there is much, much more! But we’ll leave the rest up to you to explore for yourself!
In The Sims 3 University Life, each Sim can build a unique social life that suits their
needs. Just don’t get blinded by the awesomeness of your Sim’s social life and forget
to send them to class. It’s true that a dream job can be landed based purely on social
activities but receiving good grades has its equal advantages!
That's practically all the info from it. There maybe some things I'm missing but this is
from an article on SimsVip
Then there's Island Paradise coming out in June that MIGHT be introducing mermaids. I
don't know. In the live chat they said "and even see some marine life"
Dropping anchor this June is The Sims 3 Island Paradise, an expansion pack filled with
adventure, exploration and a world of new discoveries set on the sunny shores and beneath
the glistening water of a tropical paradise. For the first time ever, Sims can take the
helm of fully customizable houseboats and set sail in search of uncharted islands, create,
own and manage resorts or discover what lies beneath the ocean through the new skill-based
scuba diving and snorkeling activities.
The Sims 3 Island Paradise introduces all new ways to build – whether it’s a lavish
five-star resort, a bungalow on the water or a houseboat that can travel the seas. Players
can create their own idea of island paradise for their Sims in this new expansion pack and
embark on an unforgettable journey.
Then there's a unnamed ep that basically you can go into the future. Oh and theres a stuff
pack. Details of that I don't remember.
