Not Tonight, My Sim Has a 'Hot Date'
9:01 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

EA and Maxis announced they would be continuing the ever-popular string of expansion packs for The Sims with a third add-on due this fall. The Sims Hot Date is a very specific expansion aimed at providing your Sims with more... romantic situations. With the actual sequels to The Sims over a year away, it's no surprise that EA is trying to keep the popularity of this series going -- not that this would take much effort. Here's a clip explaining what Hot Date will do:

The Sims Hot Date Expansion Pack represents an entirely new experience for The Sims -- dating! With exciting new characters, interests, romance objects, and an all-new Downtown area filled with restaurants, shops and parks, The Sims Hot Date will get your Sims off the couch and into the singles scene. Play matchmaker for your Sims and watch them become Casanovas or Casanevers.

"Just like everyone, the Sims are looking for love," said Tim LeTourneau, producer at EA's Maxis(TM) studio. "Hot Date allows Sims to experience the hilarious ups and downs of the dating game."    

Players can have their Sims ask each other out on a date or try their luck with an in-game dating service. Arrange to meet another Sim Downtown at exciting and romantic locations that the player can create. Everything from a candlelit dinner, a drink at the bar or a rendezvous in the park is possible as your Sim attempts to orchestrate an evening to remember.

The Mac version of House Party, the second expansion, is due out later this month from Aspyr. We're sure if it continues to sell well on the Mac, Hot Date will be announced later in the year.
