MAGIC, of course! Yes, it is true! According to SimTimes who stopped by EA Headquarters in San Fransico, Sims will have the ability to use magic.
They will be able to become witches or magicians. Details are hard to translate and understand, but it appears that your Sims will be able to teleport from land-to-land, cast spells (over 40 different kinds), cook something up in a cauldron and more!
