First Expansion of 2013 From The Sims 3 Is Available Worldwide This Week
The Sims 3 University Life offers a thriving new world to explore that includes new venues, a campus quad, a lecture hall and new housing options such as dorms, fraternities, sororities and apartments. While at university, Sims will find three social groups that are classified as jocks, rebels and nerds. Sims can build influence with each of these social groups which leads to unique advantages such as earning dream jobs.
Building cred with these social groups is now easier than ever with the help of Sims' new innovative smartphone that appears in their inventory and will guide and track their jock, rebel and nerd influence. Smartphones also build a Sims' social networking skill. Sims can blog, take photos, text and video stream using their upgraded device and share their social experiences with other Sims.
Attending university also provides benefits for Sims post-graduation. Sims that successfully complete one of the six majors at university will get an additional trait slot, advanced entry level in their chosen careers and will perform better at work leading to more frequent promotions. However, university isn't just about hitting the books and earning degrees — Sims can join a protest, attend parties, play juice pong, toss around a flying disc and so much more. As with anything, there's a fine balance that comes with juggling classes and fun.
Players who order The Sims 3 University Life Expansion Pack on Origin will also get the exclusive School Spirit Pack with extra content including the Campus Cruiser vehicle, Head of the Class hairstyle and two new face paints to outfit your Sims in essential university style.
