The Sims 3 Supernatural Features Magic and Plants vs. Zombies

The next Sims 3 expansion pack brings magic to the Sims 3 universe. Players can cast spells, brew potions, and even turn their Sims into various mystical creatures — all in the new town of Moonlight Falls. Here’s a break down of the various new features:

  • Create werewolves, fairies, witches, and vampires using the Create A Sim tool
  • Each creature has a set of inherent perks such as delayed aging for fairies and vampires, or the ability to transform at will for werewolves
  • Use spells and elixirs to charm or hex your Sims’ lives, such as providing weight loss or a career boost or even turning a Sim into a zombie (you can also give these potions to other Sims, including your friends’ Sims)
  • Of course there will be new items as well, including “enchanted objects and gothic décor,” like a bookcase to hide a secret passage or a magic mirror
  • New careers include fortune-telling and alchemy
  • The very cycle of the moon will effect gameplay as mysterious things begin to happen to the town

In an interesting twist, players who pre-order The Sims 3 Supernatural will receive a Limited Edition version, which includes “the exclusive Plants vs. Zombies content pack.” The pack includes the Pea Shooter from Plants vs. Zombies that players can place outside of their homes in order to ward off zombies, burglars, etc. It also includes unique clothing based on Plants vs. Zombies:

  • Ripped Zombie Suit Outfit – based on the “classic zombie attire” from Plants vs. Zombies
  • Newspaper Zombie Suit Outfit – based on the newspaper zombie
  • Cone and Bucket hats – Fairly self-explanatory; have your Sims wear these hats for (imaginary) safety or for fashion

The Sims 3 Supernatural expansion pack is due for release on PC and Mac this September 2012. For more information, check out the official site here and view some screenshots, artwork, and the announcement trailer below:
