So, as most of you (if not all), know, I am a big MTS person. I spend a lot of time in there. Occasionally, I pop into the Sims 3 Discussion forums just to see what's new. I'll hand it to those guys over there; they usually know what they're talking about. The leaks about Supernatural turned out to be true, even if EA waited months before "officially" announcing it.
So, when the Seasons leaks started happening from members who have been pretty right about these types of things, I started to get excited. Of course, we don't know all the details: when, exactly how good, etc, etc. Then, on August 2nd, EA officially announced the Sims 3 Seasons with a release date of November 13, 2012, just two months after the release of Supernatural. Even better, they released it with a trailer. If you haven't seen it, check it out! It is amazing and almost makes me want to cry tears of joy.
It seems to be everything I could have hoped for in an expansion pack regarding weather: gradual seasonal change, ability to work with all released worlds, including custom ones, options to control and set the length of order of the seasons, and OMFG umbrellas and the return of slow dancing. Speaking of, slow dancing was showcased in the first producer chat and there were dips and spins involved; yay! The festivals look super cute, the seasonal lot marker that allows for lots to change with the seasons (which will help immensely with storytelling), the holidays, new party types, and even aliens. Heaven is in heaven.
Is it November yet?
