6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Maxis has announced the release of the The Sims 3: Showtime expansion pack, as well as the the The Sims 3: Showtime Katy Perry Collector's Edition of the expansion pack. The new add-on for the popular life sim allows players to live the rags to riches story with their Sims and share these experiences with their friends. The collector's edition includes Katy Perry themed outfits, props and objects.

“The Sims is the world’s most popular life simulation game. It allows you to create and control just about every aspect of life,” says Scott Evans, General Manager of The Sims Studio. He continues, “With every game that we build in The Sims Studio, we want to empower players to explore, create, and share their own stories with the world. We believe that The Sims 3 Showtime truly evokes new ways to play with life.”

The Sims 3 Showtime is the newest expansion pack to the wildly popular The Sims 3 and gives players a new outlet to play with life in the glamorous world of Starlight Shores. Also available today is the much anticipated The Sims 3 Showtime Katy Perry Collector’s Edition Expansion pack, featuring in-game Katy Perry-themed outfits, props and objects. Sims (characters unique to The Sims) will make their rise to fame in The Sims 3 Showtime as a singer, magician, acrobat or DJ, and build skills necessary to put on a showstopping performance. Honing talents, acquiring crowd approval and showcasing unique skills are just the beginning steps to becoming a mega-star. Sims will also need to navigate the town’s proprietors by auditioning to prove their talents are worthy of the stage. Successful auditions will lead to larger and grander performance venues, where Sims will showcase their skills and ultimately fulfill their fantasies of achieving superstardom.

The Sims 3 Showtime offers more fun for everyone. New to the game is the option for players to fully customize their own performance stages. Fog machines, spotlights and confetti are just a few of the stage props available for players to enhance their Sims’ performance stages. New, extensive areas are ready to explore in the town of Starlight Shores, where players can watch their Sims succeed or epically fail as they transition from one venue to the next. Using new on-stage objects, players are able to further experiment within the performance careers to catapult their Sims to success or bestow the deadly grim reaper upon their fate.

For the first time ever, The Sims 3 introduces connected features into the game. Players will be given the option to log in and connect using their ‘My Page’ account information from www.TheSims3.com. By logging in, players will be able to view their player profile and wall, as well as access various other connected features such as messages to friends, friend requests and an all-new feature, SimPort. The innovative SimPort feature will now enable players to send their Sims on tour to one another’s games. SimPort makes storytelling and sharing experiences with friends simple and fun. The use of SimPort leads to greater rewards, including stamps, simoleans, lifetime happiness and exclusive in-game content.

The Sims 3: Showtime comes to Macs courtesty of TransGaming and is available now for $49.95 (USD), while the Showtime Katy Perry Collector's Edition costs $59.95 (USD).
