Electronic Arts today announced the release of The Sims Superstar, the newest expansion pack to the top-selling PC game of all time, The Sims. Players can now realize their fantasies of fame and fortune as they pursue the dream of being a Rock Star, Movie Star, or a Supermodel, live the lifestyle of a celebrity, and even mingle among some of the rich and famous. All new gameplay, new social interactions, and a whole new in-game destination offer players an all access pass to the world of superstardom. In The Sims Superstar, The Sims are ready for their close up.

"One of the most requested features from our fans is the ability to follow their Sims to work," said Jonathan Knight, Producer at EA's Maxis™ studio. "The Sims Superstar offers players the chance to follow their Sims as they pursue their dreams in the outrageous world of celebrity."

For the first time ever, players can follow their Sims to work and witness their pursuit of fame and fortune firsthand. Fledgling Sims start by signing with an agent and shuttling to Studio Town, a new and fully customizable destination that offers television and movie lots, spa locations, recording studios, and fabulous fashion facilities. Once there, Sims can schmooze, network, and name-drop their way to stardom in the movies, music, or fashion. Will your Sim be a flash in the pan or a living legend? Players can now track the sizzle of their Sims with an all new fame score.

What would a star trip be without the ability to rub elbows with a real life celebrity or two? Grammy-winning superstar Christina Aguilera, the legendary Marilyn Monroe, and pop icon Andy Warhol all lend their unique star power and likenesses to the world of The Sims Superstar.

A new cast of comical characters is also available to assist the Sims in their quest for celebrity. A fabulous fashion designer, a mega-hit record producer and a maniacal movie director are available for career critique. A capable butler, a savvy sushi chef, and a soothing masseuse will be on-call to administer to the every whim of a celebrity Sim. Life in the spotlight would not be complete without the glare of the paparazzi, the adoration of groupies, and the annoyance of an obsessed fan. This is all part of life in the spotlight in The Sims Superstar.

Sims can become a celeb or just live like one. Fabulous new objects like a skydiving simulator, scuba room, and new art and furniture collections can turn an ordinary Sims abode into a magnificent and decadent manse. Sims in need of a day of indulgence and pampering can also enjoy the new day spa, complete with mud treatments, steam baths, Sim massages, and an oxygen bar.

Will your Sim become an icon or fade into the obscurity of bad dinner theater? Will they win a coveted Simmy award or be regulated to a career in infomercials? In The Sims Superstar, you are the idol maker.
