In The Sims 3: Generations you will be able to take the reins and act out life’s most humorous and memorable moments from childhood to teenage years to adulthood in this new expansion pack

From new celebrations to dramatic life events, The Sims 3 Generations offers gamers all-new ways to express their Sims’, characters unique to The Sims, creativity. Players will be able to capture and keep track of their Sims’ life moments with in-game cameras and upload and share their Sims’ memories and Facebook via the new memory system. Players start off in the imagination-fuelled world of childhood, where they can take dance classes, misbehave with their imaginary friend or goof around in one of three themed tree houses; space rocket, wooden shack or princess. Players may then move on to embrace the drama of the teen years by pulling elaborate pranks such as exploding toilets, color dye in the shower or ding dong ditch, become prom king or queen, or forget the school dance and throw a raging party at their parents’ house. There will be even more creative options to explore with a brand new chemistry set, but they’ll need to use caution, or their Sims might turn themselves into a ghost. As adult Sims, players ride the wave of freedom. They can attend or plan bachelor and bachelorette parties, throw lavish weddings, and go through a mid-life crisis where they may change their hair, style, and more. With a wealth of new options and activities, Sims’ lives are sure to be more interesting in The Sims 3 Generations.


The Sims 3 Generations gives us an opportunity to expand every life stage and the chance for players to delve deeper into each of their special moments,” said Scott Evans, General Manager of The Sims Studio at EA. “From exploring the creative and playful childhood years, the angst-ridden defiant teenager years, to the moment of time when adults celebrate life through stag parties and weddings, we wanted players to have the tools to tell the richest stories possible for any life stage.”
