Mac game publisher Aspyr Media announced today plans to bring the most recent expansion pack of the popular The Sims franchise, The Sims: Unleashed to the Mac. With Unleashed, a player's Sims can finally own pets, anything from a dog to a lizard. The game also includes 5 new career tracks (totaling to 50 new jobs), 40 new residential lots, improved gardening options, and more than 125 new objects. Here's a short description from Aspyr's website:
As fans of The Sims know, there has always been something missing from their virtual neighborhoods... pets! In The Sims Unleashed, players can now add furry friends to their Sims' families. Teach Fido some cool tricks or hire an efficient Pet Trainer to do all of the work. Let your kitties and canines strut their stuff in the local Pet Show.The preliminary system requirements were also given (note that these may change as the game's release nears closer):
Visit a pet store and bring home a variety of creatures, from dogs to lizards, your choices are endless. To make room for these furry additions, the Sims community will be equipped with bigger neighborhoods. Forty all-new residential and community lots featuring new homes, lush parks, a hip new café, cool shops and a farmer's market are available for Sims to explore. Visit the local garden store and grow a variety of vegetables in their own garden plots.
Time for a career change? Send your Sims down five new career tracks with 50 new jobs. Enter the world of fashion, take care of the neighborhood's pets, or run away and join the circus. With 125 new objects, redecorate your Sims' home for the new pet's arrival. Are you ready?
