The latest release from The Sims line-up of expansions, Sims 3: Seasons, is looking to rain on your parade. But don’t take that the wrong way. Your Sims can now experience rain, snow, heatstroke, and allergies. The additions featured in this expansion reach way beyond just seasonal changes, however.
While having different seasons within the game of Sims 3 seems like a minor detail, this expansion includes many features without forcing itself to the game’s forefront. The integration of this expansion in particular blows the others away in terms of how it makes the player feel it has been a core component of The Sims 3 from the very start. The most obvious addition is that of four seasons, along with environmental map changes. These changes, such as leaves, puddles, and snow, also offer interactions for Sims. Seasonal activities include one of the largest additions to the entire Sims series yet- the ability to swim in areas beyond swimming pools, including the ocean.
