Sims 3 set for early June release in US


EA have announced that Sims 3 will be available on June 2nd in the US, with the PC, Mac, and multiple mobile versions (including iPhone) hitting on that date. The game was expected to arrive a little bit earlier in the year, but now it seems we have a longer wait on our hands than originally thought.

The Sims 3 is an incredible game that lets you play with life, create art and show off your creations,” said Ben Bell, Executive Producer, The Sims 3. “In the game, players are inspired by endless creative possibilities like the new Traits and Lifetime Wish features which allow players to create Sims with real personalities and destinies. Players can then take their Sim into town to interact with other Sims in the game and capture the action on video to show off online.

The June launch combined with the break-through game the team is building gives us the perfect runway to create awareness for The Sims 3,” said Russell Arons, Vice President of Marketing for EA. “The Sims 3 will be the original IP summer blockbuster of 2009 as we build off the success of the best-selling PC franchise of all time to create awareness with both loyal Sims fans and new players.
