The Sims Superstar Announced
10:48 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Electronic Arts today announced the sixth expansion pack for the best-selling game of all time, The Sims. The Sims Superstar, set to debut on the PC in May, allows players to realize their fantasies of fame and fortune as they pursue being a Rock Star, Movie Start, or even a Supermodel along with the lifestyle of being a celebrity. The expansion pack promises new gameplay, new social interactions, as well as a new in-game destination.

Here's more from the official press release:

For the first time ever, players can follow their Sims to work and witness their pursuit of fame and fortune firsthand. Fledgling Sims start by signing with an agent and shuttling to Studio Town, a new and fully customizable destination that offers television and movie lots, spa locations, recording studios and fabulous fashion facilities. Once there, Sims can schmooze, network and name drop their way to stardom in the movies, music or fashion. Will your Sim be a flash in the pan or a living legend? Players can now track the sizzle of their Sims with an all new fame score.

A new cast of comical characters are available to assist the Sims in their quest for celebrity. A fabulous fashion designer, a mega-hit record producer and a maniacal movie director are available for career critique. A capable butler, a savvy sushi chef, and a soothing masseuse will be on-call to administer to the every whim of a celebrity Sim. Life in the spotlight would not be complete without the glare of the paparazzi, the adoration of groupies, and the annoyance of an obsessed fan or two. This is all part of life in the spotlight in The Sims Superstar.

Sims can become a celeb or just live like one. Fabulous new objects like a skydiving simulator, satellite dish, and a new art and furniture collection can turn an ordinary Sims abode into a magnificent and decadent manse. Sims in need of a day of indulgence and pampering can also enjoy the new day spa, complete with mud treatments, steam baths, Sim massages and an oxygen bar. Domestic staff is also available for hire so manicured Sims won't chap their hands with the drudgeries of household maintenance.

The Sims and all of its expansion packs have been ported to the Mac by Westlake Interactive and been published by Aspyr Media. Although there's no official word yet, the chances of The Sims Superstar coming to the Mac is probably in the cards. We'll keep you posted on any future developments.
