New Screenshots + Details for Upcoming Expansion Pack

In today’s update, we reveal three new screenshots and take a closer look into the unexpected duo of the fluttering fairy and shuffling zombie in The Sims 3 Supernatural.

Fairies are fickle and magical supernaturals with an innate connection to the natural world. From the start of the game, fairies will naturally appear as human-like creatures with fluttering wings.  Through special interactions they will be able to transform into their true form which resembles a glowing insect that is miniscule in size. Fairies can be created in Create A Sim and have a slew of new customization options available that range from choosing the shape and color of their wings to adjusting the pointiness of their ears. Fairiesoften bestow gifts to others and carry special auras that increase their skills as well as the skills of those around them.

In contrast to lithe and sprightly fairies, The Sims 3 Supernatural introduces moaning and roaming zombies to the game. These lumbering creatures have just two things on their mind: brains and grains! As they shuffle through the neighborhood, zombies attempt to nibble on Sims and pick at their well-manicured planter boxes. Not even other supernatural Sims are immune to zombification! A bite from one of these brain-hungry creatures can leave your Sims with temporary or long-lasting effects.

Although zombies cannot be created in Create A Sim, zombification can occur in a variety of different ways, so Sims should be on the lookout for a zombie attack at all times. We don’t want to reveal all those ways just yet, so here’s a quick preview of things to look out for:

A Sim can use the alchemy table to brew a zombification elixir and throw it at another Sim

Or, a Sim can be bitten by a meandering zombie

If your Sim is hit with zombification, don’t fret—there is a cure. Find all of the correct ingredients to brew an elixir and change them back.

Arm your Sim’s lot with some Plants vs. Zombies Peashooters to prevent zombies on the attack. This new Peashooter object comes included in the Limited Edition version, available to those who pre-order the game. In addition to the Plants vs. Zombies Peashooter, the Limited Edition of The Sims 3 Supernatural includes creepy-chic, iconic apparel from the world of Plants vs. Zombies.

The Sims 3 Supernatural has been rated 13 by the FPB (Film and Publications Board) in South Africa.
