Oh hey, were you aware that it is, in fact, showtime? This launch trailer for
The Sims 3's latest expansion shows a few of the baubles of stardom
on offer for ambitious Sims – but the add-on has plenty more to
uncover. Showtime aims to provide a wide range of customization
options for your Sim's big number. You choose whether you aspire to
join the ranks of singers like Katy Perry, magicians like Criss
Angel, DJs such as Paul Oakenfold, or acrobats including... you know, that acrobat. The famous one, with the things.
Talking of Ms. Perry, Showtime's
released today in two separate editions: the regular $39 disc, or the
$49 Katy Perry Edition, including a poster and exclusive Perry-themed
content. At time of writing, no one in the office has earned enough
Simoleans to unlock the “scallywag British ex”
accessory, but it's early days.
