Okay, so common sense says that the fourth expansion pack for The Sims 3 will be announced soon.  Very soon, in fact.  I wish I could say more, but at this point in time I cannot confirm nor deny (EA legal mumbo-jumbo) the reports of the ‘rumor’ Sims 3 Generations that many fansites are reporting on.  Sucks that I can’t really report on these rumors (but I can’t stop you from using Google).

So hang in there, we’ll post about the 4th pack when we’re allowed to talk about it!

EA seriously should be putting more effort into a patch for their console versions before working on yet more PC expansions. http://www.FixTheSims.com

I want weather! I’m beginning to think it’s never coming.

J

I’m waiting patiently, I’m very excited about it as I believe this next one will be about weather (and more).

If not, then pets. It’s what most people talk about, but I’m also hoping for something different…

doodlesam

Generations? O.O
As much as I want weather, I’d take a family pack over Seasons anyday.

Daniel

It was suppost to be the 25th (Friday) But EA_Shouren on the EA UK forums said this date has been changed and will notify us when they can … so EA have delayed it.

Pjadek

I WANT SEASONS

Kiwi_tea

Hmmm, sounds like it could be a pack themed around romance and family. That could really expand and improve the core game. If done right.

Riley/Mod the Spore

Has Judhudson been NDA by EA and is on the press list, great work Jud!

Judhudson

LOL, I wish. Not that, just was asked kindly to keep the info quiet. But we don’t have much longer to wait (I need something else to talk about other than Medieval!)

Alexander

Maybe this will include family things, wather and pets?

Madre Monster

Ohhhh finally, I’m sooooooo excitied but I wonder what it is about? Since I was expecting it to be related to weather, nature etc. Can’t wait, thanks for the hint

AdiCohen

I really want weather back again… I hope the next EP will have this :

Pjadek

family stuff like more interactions compare whit seasons and cool pets. Like The Sims 3 Family Included Expansion Pack*

Alexander


Judhudson:

I’m so tierd od Medieval!

Madre Monster

Everyone already hates this game. It’s so pointless and ugly… (Talking about Medieval)

Alexander

Agree!

Tanner

Either Pets or Seasons/Weather. What does “Sims 3 Genereations” mean? Is it a joke? I Google’d it, and nothing relevant came up.

goo

I’m sure Generations is just a default name of some sort. Like “After Dark” and “Hobbies & Professions” were.

Worst case scenario is that it turns out to be one huge advertisement for one of those ancestry finder websites. LMAO

Sean

Thanks for posting this Jud!

I always check your site first and on a normal day refresh this page at least 2 times but most times can range up to 8 :).

<3 simprograms btw do you know 'anything'?? Not expecting you to say obviously, but do you know more than the rest of us?

Karen

Sims 3 Generations? :O.o

I thought it would definitely be Seasons or Pets…

I wonder what would be in the expansion?

Karen

I would absolutly love it if it was Seasons/Pets Combined together. That would be a dream come true.

Michael

I REALLY WANT A SIAMESE CAT FOR MY APARTMENT. )’:

Michael

Interestingly, it will be announced soon before the release of Medieval. Thought it will be after it was released.

I would like Seasons and Pets, it doesn’t matter which one, though. Generations? We sort already have it in the game. Or is it that it will be more detailed and expanded? Anyway, it doesn’t interest me at all for now.

Elliot

Searching ‘The Sims 3: Generations’ is overshadowed by legacy challenges.

Judhudson

@Elliot – you have to sort by date – latest news.

fasterling

Hey The tag is good that The Sims 3 will be announced soon, the most fantastic is that the new expansion of Sims 3 is on climate and also for pets, good for the game is to use the beach but hope to official announcement or rumor ….

J

So, I was wandering around the interwebs as usual and found this site in Portuguese showing an image of interesting details in CAW.

Supposedly being linked to sound files, in the black boxes you can read, from the top: ice, mud, snow, deep water, knee-high water, lakes and pools, puddles and waist-high water. It’s todays news too, found it on this site:

http://sims3sempre.blogspot.com/2011/02/quarta-expansao-dos-sims-3-pode-ser.html

The rumors get me all hyped about it…

michael

TELL US SOMETHING JUD, should we go to bed or wait a couple of hours? 😉

Thomas

I think that it does have something to do with weather, or the outdoors, for that matter. The reason why I suspect this is because the last SP was outdoors related, and EA has seemed to release SP that are related to an EP that comes up around the same time. This is only my guess. But I do hope I am right, I really want weather/seasons and pets/animals!! 😀 When you said that you can’t keep us from using google, do you mean if we search google we’ll find what it is? What should I search people!?!? haha

absolut

i want SEASON please EA make SEASONS please

Dennis

EA has sure kept this 4th expansion under wraps without information about it released so far.

If speculations are true and this 4th expansion pack is to be released before Medieval (March 22), then that means both games will release within a month of each other.

From a marketing and sales POV, this doesn’t make much sense for EA. Releasing 2 products near each other means less sales for both games.

Unless… Medieval and Sims 3 EP4 are bundled together?

Karen:

Not for me it wouldn’t. I want to see weather in my game, but not at the expense of having to put up with pets. I seriously hope EA don’t go down this route.

Madre Monster

I think it took them so long to release the news because of the Medievil shit. They are focused on it and probably don’t want to overshadow it by the fourth EP. That is why sites are quiet and don’t want to spill anything too.

Alexis

ok people bcuz im tired of all you WHINING about wanting weather and pets YEEEES
and hear me YES the next one will PROBABLY be weather as announced a few months ago in a report… so shut up PLEASE

You have a source for that, then? Also, if you want people to take you seriously, I’d quit the chatspeak.

Sean

Kinda getting bored of waiting 😛

JohnBigOz

Same, I think it’s already passed the “shorly” mark 😛

Dentface

THE SUSPENSE IS KILLING ME! xD Jud, could you at least tell us what its not? Also how close is the announcement… like between now and 2 weeks close?

Dentface

Well, im googling it and all im getting is next ep for the sims 3 to be titled generations…. nothing else….

Dentface

Well after some research… I’ve concluded (may not be correct) That this EP will be announced on Friday

Kesha

Maybe I’m just being unimaginative but, what the hell could an EP called Generations be about? Isn’t that what’s already happening in regular game play? OR MAYBE THIS WILL BE THE GIANT PATCH THAT WE ALL CRAVE?! SO MASSIVE, IT’S EP SIZED! Right.

Also, as far as Medieval, I can’t say I’m terribly excited. I already play Oblivion which I’m thinking will be exactly like Medieval but without the awesome fighting, but with “romance” and pesky children who need to be trained.

I work at a CERTAIN NAMELESS COMPANY and i have seen something about this ep but i signed a agreement so i cant say anything but all i say is its flippin’ cool (^_^) cant wait,it will be a GREAT addition to anyone’s Sims collection

TickleOnTheTum

So no Pets and no weather?! Now we have all the proof we need that EA is just in it for the money and don’t give a damn about what we the players want.

Well, the game has come off of our machine and won’t go back on until we see a pets pack.

Of course if it’s the last pack of the series, there won’t be any point in buying it as within 6 months there’ll be a Sims 4 out, then we will wait and see when pets come along with that one…

TickleOnTheTum:

No, all we have is a name: Generations, and even that could be little more than a working title.

Chris

What the heck could generations even be? It sounds like a legacy challenge to me and I never got into those.

I’ve removed ALL Sims 3 stuff from my system as well because none of it really lived up to the hype for me. It’s sad because I absolutely loved the sims for about 10 years but each time I tried to play The Sims 3, it seemed more like a chore than fun. I’ll keep checking back here to see if there is anything that might seem like it will make it fun but I won’t buy anything more until other people have had it for a while and I’ll see if it can stand the test of time. Every one of the expansions for TS3 was fun for only a few days but once I had done everything there was to do, it was just the same old boring crap so I wish something fun would come along and renew my sims love affair. It’s sad to lose something you have loved for so long.

Sounds boring to me.

YoungOldPrude

Thanks for the link, Chris.
Sounds like more missing Base Game components. Do you think that they will finally include the animations for running up and down the stairs? Never mind. That would probably be far too strenuous for them.

acee

well medieval had a great amount of different animations for different kind of sims, so maybe they made a game that would do the same.. add more interactions and such…. i just hope it’s better than all those EP’s… I got bored of the sims 3, which I thought I’ll never be… oh well… i hope this will bring me back to the sims 3…

acee

oh by the way, I would a weather EP!!!
😛

Josh

Well, it’s officially Generations. But maybe there will be rain added? I thought that the “knee high” water thing would be impossible, but it’s basically like a sea level rise. I think there will be rain in the Generations patch.
