We have been playing the Sims since they first appeared on the scene back in 2000. Till now, we have only played as those fantastical Sims characters that we could mold and create from scratch from their heads to their toes. But that is all about to change, now that you can play as a your Sims’ dedicated animal companion. The Sims 3 Pets is the latest expansion pack to The Sims 3 that lets you become a pet. You can design a dog, cat, or horse. You can fully customize the pet from its ears to its tail. You can even alter its personality making it a happy dog or kitty to a lazy or aggressive one.
The Sims 3 Pets can then be inserted into a pre-existing Sims 3 home and become part of that household. The Pets can also multiply and have puppies or kittens! Players will be able to fully control and immerse themselves into being a pet. Is kitty bored? Well they can go and scratch on that nice pricey sofa of yours. Sound familiar? Dogs in Sims Pets will even bark at objects that scare them. How is that for realistic.
On consoles, The Sims Pets will be able to help their Sims owners solve and uncover mysteries around town. The inclusion of horses open a whole new world of possibilities by introducing horseback riding and equestrian trials.
The Sims 3 Pets will be available in the Fall around October. Get ready to transport your real dog or cat into the world of the Sims!
