The Sims 3 Island Paradise Available Now
6:00 AM | IMG News | 3 comments

Maxis and Electronic Arts have announced that The Sims 3 Island Paradise expansion pack is now available. For the first time ever the new addition gives players the chance to dive beneath the waves and explore what lies on the ocean floor, build and cruise along on their very own houseboat to discover uncharted islands or create and run a five-star resort experience.

“In The Sims 3 Island Paradise, The Sims Studio has brought to life a tropical vacation for players to experience without ever having to leave home,” says Ryan Vaughan, Producer for The Sims. “With so many new gameplay features included in this game, players will be able to explore, inhabit and discover beachside bliss just as they would in real life.”

In The Sims 3 Island Paradise, players can snorkel and scuba dive beneath the sea where they will discover an aquatic world filled with sea life, collectibles, caves and sunken treasure. Underwater explorations can lead to many new adventures including befriending mermaids, spotting legendary sea monsters and potentially life-threatening encounters with sharks.

For players looking to move around and explore the different islands, a houseboat may be their perfect new abode. These fully customizable floating homes make a first time appearance in any Sims game and give players the option to extend their explorations by living a life fully at sea or by breaking away for a day’s escape.

It’s not all fun in the sun though. Players seeking management opportunities will reap the benefits of building and owning their own resort. Be it a family-friendly resort of waterslides and buffet tables, a romantic retreat with bungalows in the sand, or a singles resort that features pool bars, players will make management decisions that will affect their resort’s success. Whether it’s adding in pools and fire walk pits, upgrading guest rooms or selecting from daily beverage specials, players will be able to fine-tune their resort’s amenities based on feedback received from customer reviews.

The Sims 3 Island Paradise is available now for $39.99 (USD).
