The Sims 3 WA iPhone 3To say that The Sims series of games have been successful would be a massive understatement. The original PC version was the best selling PC game of all time, and the ridiculous amount of expansions and sequels all were remarkably successful as well. The iPhone game, The Sims 3 [App Store] rocketed up to the #1 top selling paid app on the App Store almost instantly following its release, and stayed there for quite some time.

EA hopes to duplicate that success with the upcoming pseudo-sequel The Sims 3 World Adventures. In the game, you'll be able to travel to three locations: "Al Simhara" in Egypt, "Champs Les Sims" in France, and "Shang SimLa" in China. Along with new personas, careers, and quests you will also have 52 new goals to achieve as well as 4 new mini-games to play with your sim.

Of course World Adventures also comes loaded with new clothes, furniture, and face types for you to choose when customizing your sim, and if you've purchased DLC in The Sims 3, you will be able to transfer those purchases to this game. On top of that, you will be able to import and export your characters between both games on your iPhone.

Last, but certainly not least, The Sims 3 World Adventures will feature musical accompaniment of popular songs sang in "Simlish". LeAnn Rimes is the only artist that EA has specifically mentioned so far, and you can hear her song sung sim-style here.

EA isn't ready to discuss release dates yet, but we will post more information (and hopefully more "Simlish" songs) as we receive it.

      You don't have to contribute to their greed! Stand your ground! The rest of us will have fun playing their games ;).

    Man I can't wait for this game. The Sims 3 is my all time favorite game on the PC. I like the iPhone version a lot but its probably not my favorite iPhone game. I can't wait to buy this. It is definitely a buy it the day it comes out level of game. This expansion on the PC added a ton of depth and hours onto the game. I hope going forward that EA will release other Sims games onto the iphone such as MySims, MySims Agents, MySims Kingdom, Sims 2 Castaway, Sims 2 Pets, etc. If I were EA I would release frequent content updates that are playable such as content similar to Sims 1 and 2 themed expansion packs. I believe strongly that most Sims fans would far rather buy playable game content that add activities and depth to the game more than items to be worn or used. Adding skill set type of activities or badge earning activities would be great.

    Everytime I hear about an new EA Mobile game I throw up inside my mouth. Everytime one of their games gets huge sales (which almost all do) a little piece of me dies inside.

      Why? They make solid games?

    Normally, i am unopposed to the idea of DLC even that of DLC on the iphone. HOWEVER, considering the incredible lack of amount of play in Sims 3 for the iphone i will probably pass on this one. Sims 3 for the iphone is nothing like the pc game with most of the fun stripped out. Repetitive interactions with people and with little reward or motivation is droll. I bought the 99c Dlc for sims 3 as well and you only are able to earn a car and new furniture. I'm tired of going to my house and sleeping just to go back to work to earn money and then do nothing.

    This is good news, as it shows that EA is indeed seeing good sales from this platform and will continue to release games.
    Frankly, I'd prefer EA's releases rather than any one of those iFart, iToolbox or iWhatever applications in the App Store.

    True, some of EA's releases have been a let-down (quite disappointed at how they screwed up Scrabble with best word and advertising in a paid app) but Need for Speed series (not 100% realistic, but hey, fun doesn't need to be real), CLUE and Sims 3 have been some of my favourite games.

    They really do need to work on bloat though. My battery drains really quick with games like Sims 3 and Scrabble, both of which have long loading times.

    WOW! That look very good! I've been waiting for this news... I hope they make like an expansion pack (like the PC version) ! I would be disappointed if they make a separate game...:(

  • Sam

    I wondered if this was coming out. I shouldn't get too excited though as the first was such a let down.

    Can't wait for this, been playing the Sims 3 for the past week wayyyyy too much. It's a great game, well worth a download and in my top 10 apps, thus far.

    This can only add to the fun.

    Oh oh, Expension Pack Madness has arrived on the Iphone!!!

    Honestly, why doesnt EA just try to make a more complete version of the Sims for first. Build mode anyone? that will give the game tons of replay value -
    or is this just against policy, so people keep on buying these sequels....

    I think this could be really exciting, as I have seen a video for it, and it has an airport in your town, and you can choose whether to fly business class or normal to the country you are going to, and there is a mini game on the flight apparently. The sooner this arrives the better, I hope you can have children on this.
