6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

MCV has posted a new preview of The Sims 3, the upcoming continuation of the successful Sims franchise. The game will add new twists to the popular life sim formula with customizable personalities, goal oriented gameplay, movie creation and editing, and an online community. Destructoid's article details some of the game's new features and includes comments from product manager Kerri West.

The latest in EA’s mega-franchise boasts your usual Sims gameplay, but now the houses and neighbourhoods blend seamlessly without loading times, there are even more customisation options, and the AI has also been drastically revamped.
And that’s not to mention the updated visuals and extra online options, all designed to delight the franchise’s massive fanbase.
“There’s just so much more to a Sims life in The Sims 3,” continues West.
“Not only can they now explore the neighbourhood and become immersed in their local community, they can also work towards fulfiling their destiny… or not. As always in The Sims, their fate is left up to the player to decide.
“Players will also now have more godly freedom to create the way they want to. The customisation and design options for Sims, houses, cars, clothes, furniture and more are practically limitless and so much easier to use than in The Sims 2. However, one of the most significant advances of The Sims 3 is the new AI.
“There are dozens and dozens of funny and compelling personality traits that players can pick to create unique personalities for their Sims. There are hundreds of possible combinations meaning each Sim will behave and react differently making them unpredictable and captivating.”
