Does The Sims community have a say?

We want you to know that we take all of your feedback very seriously. We read our forums, fan sites, Facebook posts, tweets and take all of that information into consideration when planning the development of games and content for The Sims games. Our goal is to provide fans of The Sims with the content and experiences they want and keep the variety fresh and affordable.


You’re able to produce so many packs a year, how can we be sure that each pack is getting the attention and content that it deserves?

We appreciate all of the loyal fans who go out on day one to buy our latest games or content releases, so we do our best to make sure we meet, and hopefully exceed, expectations. We are fortunate to have a very large team at The Sims Studio. While one group is working on one project, we have other product in development happening within other teams. This ensures that we are able to give you new content on a frequent basis. Since we have so many fans with so many interests, we’re constantly working with the community to decide what content we should develop next.


We also strive to create themes for new games and content updates that drive new, innovative gameplay and bring content that addresses feedback from The Sims community.


Are there any deals on The Sims 3 Store?

The Sims 3 Store provides new deals every day through its Daily Deals page. Each day there is a new offer, sometimes more than one. Players can save over 50% on some of the most popular items. Several of our expansion packs are great deals at the moment at The Sims 3 Store, so please check the site to see what’s offered in your territory.


The Sims 3 Store also provides free Avatar Backgrounds, Badges, and Stickers that players can use to customize their “MyPage” on Thesims3com. It also offers an array of free content and sets that any player can redeem, and use to customize their game in all-new ways. As well, The Sims 3 Store also provides a whole-new World, Riverview, free to all players who wish to redeem it. Just follow these links:

Are the new connected features something the fans asked for?

We’re very proud of the options that we’ve been able to provide to better connect us to you and you to your friends within The Sims community. The Sims is a franchise that is based on player choice, and we give you the tools to play as you choose. While some of you may choose to enjoy your offline experience as you always have, some of you have asked to be able to play and share with your friends. Through these features, players have the opportunity to post their Sims’ successes, share gameplay techniques, create wish lists and send gifts, search for new friends and share memories through their in-game news feeds and beyond. Even if you choose not to play with your friends or post on in-game walls, you can still benefit from online connected features. Using these functions, we are able to notify you and provide you with new challenges and achievements that will be rolled out on a regular basis. Again, it’s there if you want it, but of course, it’s all up to you.
