Apple Starts Livin' Large
8:58 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

In a note related to our SimsForMac announcement, Apple's Games section has posted an article covering the Sims add-on pack Livin' Large. This feature covers some of what you'll find in this expansion for The Sims, with quotes from creator Will Wright and Aspyr's Michael Rogers. Here's a very interesting excerpt about an online version of the game:

There are no plans right now to release another Sims expansion pack, but fans shouldn’t worry that that will spell the end of the Sims franchise: Wright and his team at Maxis are hard at work on an online version of the game that will consist of a gigantic Simville, complete with a large array of communities and plenty of interactive activities.  

While Wright can’t divulge any details about the online version right now, he is willing to acknowledge that the work the fans have put into the game won’t go for naught. “We’re trying to make most of the custom fan content compatible with the online version,” he says. “Our fans have put a tremendous amount of creative energy into this stuff and I hope that the online version will help solidify and extend the life of our existing community of players and fans.”

An online version would surely be a huge hit for fans of the genre, and we'll be sure to bring you any new info on this future title. There are also many links to other Sims resources around the web in the article, so be sure to check it out. And also head to our favorite resource, SimsForMac.
