Coming to PCs Worldwide in October

Play And Share Online With Your
Friends And Meet New MySims Characters On Your PC!

The Sims, an Electronic Arts Inc.
Label, today announced the first details for MySims, made for the PC, coming to
stores in October, 2008. MySims first launched on the Wii and Nintendo DS in
Autumn, 2007 and has been a worldwide hit embraced by players everywhere. Now
the game makes its way to the PC with new online features and new characters.

In MySims you can create original
characters, build a town, grow a community and discover a world of your own.
Start by personalizing the appearance of your MySims from head to toe and go on
to unlock cool new items as you befriend and build relationships with your
neighbors. Make your creations unique when you design your own homes, shops,
restaurants and more in this fun, open-ended game. All that you need is a little
creativity and some help from the locals!

Now on the PC with new online
features and characters! Have fun with friends safely in a shared online game
space and discover surprises and wonders in your newly created town with the
MySims you love and a new cast of characters! Now in MySims, made for the PC,
you can find all the fun of the first game plus new online features and all-new
characters to spark your creativity. Safely chat, interact and play games like
Tag and Hide-and-Seek with your online buddies. Construct buildings and create
objects to use cooperatively with up to seven friends that are online with you.
Like trading cards, share your creations with your friends in-game, as well as
outside the game via email or instant message so that others can enjoy them in
their own MySims town. The choice to play online is yours, so you can decide to
play as a single-player or expand your experience by playing with friends in an
online neighborhood.

“MySims, made for the PC, opens up
the world of MySims for you to explore, play and share with up to seven other
friends that are online with you,” said Rod Humble, Head of Studio for The Sims
Label. “For the first time, you can express the creativity of MySims with others
in a collaborative way, as you create and live in a shared town with your
friends online. With MySims, made for the PC, it’s a whole new world of
interaction with personalized creations, buildings and towns to share, along
with furniture and other tailored creations that you and your friends can trade.
Players who enjoyed MySims on the Wii and Nintendo DS will view this as a great
way to connect with friends in an online PC game and those new to MySims will
find this a fresh and exciting game.”

In October – it’s time to get your
MySims out on the town!
