The Sims, which originally launched in February 2000, is the wildly popular game that allows players to create a neighborhood of simulated people known as Sims and control their lives. For the first time, The Sims Mega Deluxe combines The Sims with three popular expansion packs:
- The Sims Hot Date, which allows players to be matchmakers for their Sims, watching the sparks fly or fizzle. Sims can venture out of the house and into the downtown area, where they'll gossip over a candlelit dinner, buy gifts for their dates, or just cruise the strip in hopes of getting lucky. Also included are 125 romantically searing items like the Cuddle Couch and Lover's Swing.
- The Sims Livin' Large allows players to put their Sims into the most outrageous situations and settings. Its content adds 125 extreme items to the game including a home chemistry lab, heart shaped bed, and crystal ball, as well as a cast of wild characters such as the Grim Reaper, Genie, and Tragic Clown.
- The Sims House Party gives players everything they need to throw the biggest bashes in their neighborhood. Whether their Sims hoedown at a country barn dance, chow down at a tropical luau, or go underground at a rave, they are sure to rock the house. Additionally, there are over 100 outrageous items such as a dance cage and mechanical bull, as well as madcap characters like a cake dancer and personal caterer.
The Sims Mega Deluxe also includes The Sims(TM) Creator, an inventive customization tool for creating Sim characters. Players can recreate any Sim imaginable, right down to the smallest detail, including a variety of new clothes and customized accessories. For the ultimate level of personalization, players can import their face into the program and put it directly on a Sim character.
Rounding off this must-have collection, players can furnish their homes with additional content ranging from decorative Japanese outdoor fountains to exotic African masks. This bonus material also will be available for download from http://www.thesims.com. Access to this content requires players to own The Sims Mega Deluxe Edition, The Sims Double Deluxe Edition, The Sims Deluxe Edition or The Sims plus any one of the following expansion packs, The Sims Vacation, The Sims Unleashed, or The Sims Superstar.
