EA Announces The Sims: Unleashed
8:06 AM | Tristan Kane | Comment on this story

Electronic Arts has announced the next in the long line of add-ons for their spectacularly successful game The Sims. The Sims: Unleashed for the first time adds pets to the digital household, and in order to accommodate these new occupants has added new neighborhood locations such as parks and pet stores. Here is an excerpt from the release:

"Just when players thought they had housebroken their Sims, now they have pets to contend with," said Jonathan Knight, Producer at EA's Maxis(TM) studio. "Pets are something that the fans of The Sims have wanted since the original Sims was released and Unleashed will deliver in spay-eds!"

For the first time ever, the Sims can visit a pet store and bring home a variety of creatures and accoutrements. Players will make a big splash with the addition of a lumbering Labrador or fickle feline to their Sim family. They can also buy a parrot, turtle, lizard or fish that are fun for the whole family but don't need to be house trained.

Look out for any announcements in the coming weeks as to if and when a Mac port will be produced. Aspyr and Westlake Interactive are obviously the most likely suspects as they have been responsible for all Sims ports to date. In the mean time feel free to look at the full article from the link below and begin to consider what pet will most suit you.
