EA Announces The Sims Stories For PC
8:04 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

Electronic Arts has announced a new line of Sims related games focusing on engaging characters and easy to play storylines. Players will have a choice of either following the new directed Story mode with predefined characters and storylines or create their own Sim in Classic mode and enjoy open-ended play. Designed with PC laptop users in mind The Sims Stories line will feature simple shortcuts and an auto pause feature upon closing the laptop.

The first game in the new series, The Sims Life Stories, introduces a unique storyline complete with romance, dramatic twists, and unlockable content. It is scheduled to hit the shelves for PC users in February 2007. Two other games, Pet Stories and Castaway Stories, have yet to receive a target release date.

The first of these games, The Sims Life Stories, introduces an all-new Story Mode with two stories that follow the lives of Riley Harlow and Vincent Moore, two very different characters who have reached similar crossroads in their love lives. A comic romantic plot centered around engaging characters guides players through twelve chapters of this one-of-a-kind entertainment experience. Players can take their Sims through unique and entertaining storylines filled with romance, intrigue and dramatic twists. Will female lead character Riley ditch beau number one to marry and have kids with beau number two? Will successful entrepreneur Vince ever find love, or the culprit who’s been foiling his heart-earned efforts to find it? Players can discover these answers and more, or enjoy classic open-ended Sims gameplay.

“Everyone loves a good story. The Sims Life Stories gives players two wonderful romantic comedies to enjoy,” declared Rod Humble, VP Head of Studio for The Sims Division. “For those who are interested in The Sims, The Sims Stories are accessible and fun for everyone.” According to Humble, the world of The Sims provides the perfect place for these romantic comedies to unfold. Built around virtual people called Sims, daily activities — from sleeping and eating, choosing outfits and decorating the house, even cooking and getting a job — are controlled by the player. The Sims celebrates the choices that we make in life. What’s more familiar than being confused by life and love?
These new games are stand alone and will not require The Sims 2 or any of its expansions. There is no word yet on the possibility of Mac versions of the new games.
