EA have released the launch trailer for the latest expansion for The Sims 3, Into The Future. Into The Future will feature a number of new game play elements, character behaviors, building design capabilities, and much more.
The means by which this futuristic expansion will be applied to your current Sims 3 game is pretty fun: A futuristic Sim appears in your home and and bestows upon you and your Sims a time portal which leads to the future. Upon stepping through the portal, Sims will find themselves in Oasis Landing, and futuristic town.
In the future, you will be able to build and design robots to serve your city, play wit hover boards, jet packs, and hover cars. You know, all that fun future stuff. But one of the cooler future elements incorporated in The Sims 3: Into The Future is the ability for your Sims to interact with their descendants. You can choose to talk to them, change them and their career paths or even kill them. And the decisions your Sim makes in the present will affect those descendants in the future. Hopefully there will be some fun paradoxes to play around with.
The Sims 3: Into The Future releases on OSX and Windows on October 22, 2013.
