Sims Online First Look
10:08 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The UK-based site PC Gameplay has taken a quick look at the upcoming internet-ready title from Maxis which is sure to be yet another blockbuster, The Sims Online. The game promises to take the successful formula of The Sims into the online realm with an easy-to-use chat system, monetary rewards and a huge number of players developing side-by-side in a virtual neighborhood. Here's a clip from the preview with more:

For those possessing a touch more community spirit, a plethora of financial and social opportunities exist. The self-made individual can establish a booming business chain, but communal houses or shared interests in nightclubs, bordellos and casinos are common too. Various minigames encourage this type of play, presenting basic challenges which require careful cooperation to accomplish.
The Sims Online is likely to be released sometime well into next year for the PC. While no Mac version has yet been announced, we're confident that the series' popularity will continue on the Mac platform thanks to Aspyr Media.
