Sims 2 PC Reaches Age Of Maturity
8:11 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story

Game publishing giants Electronic Arts announced on Monday that the PC version of the The Sims 2, sequel to the best selling computer game of all time, has gone gold.

The sequel to Will Wright's record-breaking game, which has been in the works since 2001, pushes way beyond the limitations of the original. Players will be in charge of stewarding their Sims from birth until old age, chaperoning entire generations of electronic avatars through their lives' daily routines. The sequel also features an entirely new 3D graphics engine, new roles, new materials, new interactions, scores of new animations, plus the addition of entire lifespans, progeny, and genetics to the Sims gameplay.

While the PC version of the Maxis title is expected to hit store shelves September 17, this milestone for The Sims 2 development team means that efforts will soon be turning to porting the game to the Mac OS. Late last month, Maxis' General Manager Neil Young assured Mac fans
in a community chat hosted on the game's official website that a Mac version of the popular god game is in the works, however the title didn't yet have a release date. While his comments don't constitute an official announcement, Mac fans of the popular game should be pleased to know that this new addition to the best-selling franchise will be gracing our screens soon.

Stay tuned to IMG for further announcements on this popular title.
