game release date for PC:
The Sims 3: Island Paradise is an expansion to The Sims 3 – a game which simulates the life. This expansion has been made also by The Sims Studio – the same team which has created the previous parts of Island Paradise. The studio was specifically designated for this task by Electronic Arts.
The theme of the expansion is the sea and all activities related to it. For the first time in the Sims series, the Sims can build houseboats and moor them in different ports, and even anchor in the middle of the ocean. They have also the opportunity to explore unexplored islands, each in different ways, thanks to founding fragments of the map. What is more, they can build houses on the water, and even exclusive seaside hotels. The Island Paradise gives also the opportunity to dive in two ways – using a straight tube to breathe under water, or with full diving equipment.
Graphics and the main assumptions of the game remain unchanged compared to the original game. The Island Paradise provides only additional content directed primarily to The Sims 3 veterans.
