The Sims 2 goes to work

Electronic Arts has announced Open for Business, a brand new expansion pack for The Sims 2, and we've got the first shots.

This latest add-on to the life sim, allows you to develop your own Sim business from the ground up. You'll be able to choose what sort of business it will be, then decide on the layout of the business, hire and fire the right staff, and experiment with different sales techniques to keep the money flowing in.

Key to running a successful business is of course being able to keep your staff happy, which means making sure their job role suits their strengths and that they are properly trained to face the demands of the job.

With the Christmas Party, Nightlife and University expansion packs already available, this will be the fourth expansion for The Sims 2.

The Sims 2 Open for Business will be released for PC in March
